God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind - 2 Timothy 1:7. When we think of power, it's easy to picture a king or a president or a military general. But the kind of power God has given us isn't necessarily power over other people, instead it is power over ourselves. We have been set free from our old nature. We no longer are bound by sin or chained to our past.  We have been given freedom.We have the power to find peace in the midst of chaos. We have the power to find joy in the midst of uncertainty. We have the power to see Jesus in middle of ordinary life. We have the power to witness miracles in the mundane. We have the power of Jesus Christ dwelling inside us.
