Prayer Journey — Not a Spirit of Timidity

It’s there, towering over me. I am frightened, too scared to move or say anything. I recoil into my feelings of not measuring up; my feelings of being less; my feelings of lacking. I dig deep into myself, but I cannot find the strength. Nothing. Yet His words speak to me: “For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7, NASB).” Help me Lord to not be timid toward the things that tower over me. Strengthen me with your Spirit. Refresh me with your Word. Fill me with your wisdom. Help me to stand against forces that seek to take me down. You are my fortress, an ever present help.
