No Fear Here

2 Timothy 1:6-7 (ESV)For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

We have been (past tense) unleashed from fear. It no longer should have any control or power over us. Our decisions should no longer be bound to fear. Man and mans power over us should be broken – that is making decisions based on the fear of man. I say should because according to the finished work of the cross, we’ve been unleashed from fear, but in order to fully benefit from this finished act, we must accept it as ours and begin to live like it’s so. Are you tracking with me? Unleashed means completely set free, totally released from those things that hold us back, no longer bound by its control. Let’s live like it, line our confession up with it and move away from the many tentacles of fear. Let us proclaim loud and clear…”No Fear Here”. Amen!
