“If fear is cultivated it will become stronger, if faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery.” -John Paul Jones
It’s been said that everyone has a “lesser self,” moments that you are not yourself. Your lesser self ponders everything that could go wrong. He maps out an escape route instead of an entryway. Your lesser self lives in fear, not by faith. This is a stark contrast from the person Christ has called you to be. As a Christian knowing that you have the Spirit of Christ inside of you, this is the greatest reason of all to be confident and courageous. Pray today to be who God truly created you to be.
Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying (Romans 12:12, NLT).
