God has not given us a spirit of fear - a Christian perspective
Our new life as followers of Christ is not an existence characterized by fear or timidity. With God's support, we can boldly go out and proclaim the good news, with nothing to fear from any human or spiritual power.


"Spirit of fear" in the Bible: 2 Timothy 1:7
The NIV renders "spirit of fear" as "spirit of timidity." In 2 Timothy we are told that God did not give us a spirit of fear, but rather he gave us a spirit of power, love and self-discipline.
