For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].

2 Timothy 1:7

Jesus knows how we were created, and He meant for us to think things through and come to Him before reacting to any given situation. Seek Jesus first, He is here with us. He has given us a precious gift in His Holy Spirit indwelling in us. We need to trust Him in everything. There is no fear when He is right here with us.

Jesus has given us authority as we step out in His name. So we must take courage and not fear as we go out into this world. We need to allow our faith to grow and our boldness to be strong as we stand for Jesus and His Word. Not everyone will accept the message, but take heart, they had Jesus walking in person alongside them and yet many still rejected Him.

Just GO and be strong, ready to say and do that which Jesus has instructed. Plant the seed that they will remember when the time is right. This is all Jesus is asking of us right now. Just be obedient and take a step forward knowing that He is right here with us.
