Scripture:   2Timothy (NIV) 1:7  For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.  

Observation:    When God places His Spirit within us, it is NOT to make us bashful, shy, timid, nervous or afraid.  His Spirit give s power, love and self-discipline. 

Application:  The Spirit of the Lord energizes me with power to make a difference.  He places the God kind of love in me to enable me to love the unlovable.  He causes me to think and understand without over-reacting, but in moderation and self-control. 

Prayer:   Lord, thank you for your Holy Spirit.  You know what I need!  I need more than just to be told to how to act, I need the presence of your Spirit within to enable me to act appropriately!  Amen
