For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7
If you didn't know it, you have an enemy that his #1 goal is to destroy you. He doesn't use physical danger to get us scared, but his small whispers are just as effective. "you tried before and failed, you will fail again!, What if you embarrass yourself?, what if....? Instead listen to what 'Spirit" God has given you, it is power, love and a discipline to do His will in our lives. It's His reassurance of who you are in Him when fiery darts come at you from any devil. The moment you taste fear, realize you have an opportunity for God to grow your faith in Him. Your fear then will grow in courage.
Remember that God has a great plan for your life and no devil in hell can take that from you. That only person who can do that is you. Define your life by victories and not trials or defeats. Live according to what the word says you are. Understand what anointing and power you have in Him. Fear is a feeling that will pass. Christ in you and working through you is eternal. Know that you are not a victim in this life but a Victor living in Victory! The devil knows who you are and what God has called you. We need to realize this so that we can live victoriously.
