God's Shrink Ray!
2 Timothy 1:7 God gave us his Spirit. And the Spirit doesn’t make us weak and fearful. Instead, the Spirit gives us power and love. He helps us control ourselves.
Did you know that God’s Word is like a shrink ray? Actually, it is like a disappearing ray, if there was such a thing! Let me show you what I mean.
Let’s suppose you are afraid of the dark. You can take your shrink ray, that is God’s Word, and blast that fear.
2 Timothy 1:7 says “God gave us his Spirit. And the Spirit doesn’t make us weak and fearful. Instead, the Spirit gives us power and love. He helps us control ourselves.”.
When I feel afraid of the dark I can read this verse in the Bible and say it out loud. When I do that it is like I am blasting that fear with a shrink ray. The fear gets smaller. If I blast that fear with God’s Word every time I feel afraid, it will eventually disappear and I won’t be afraid of the dark anymore! I know this works because I’ve tried it!
Go ahead, I dare you to try it. What are you afraid of? Find this Bible verse, learn it and say it as often as you need to. Then watch your fear shrink and disappear!
Look up and read Psalm 91 in your own Bible! This is a great Psalm to help you overcome fear!
