Stir it up. January 12.

Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:6-7


Apparently Timothy was prone to be timid. Paul tells him, to first, stir up the gift of God that’s in you. The great things God has done for us and in us, have a tendency to die down, just like a fire. It May be because it has not had enough fuel placed on it, it may be someone has tried to douse it out, or something tries to smother it. There are many attempts by our enemy to cause the Fire of the Holy Spirit within us to go out or be reduced to smoldering coals. Pauls simple advice : Timothy stir it up!!!! Lets put our name in his place and stir up within us what God has done and is wanting to do. We do this by faith, believing God has not forgot me or abandon me, He will help me, be in and fulfill His will for my life. Have faith enough to pray, search the scriptures, and fulfill the works He has given us to do. I don’t know all that has tried to smother out your relationship with God. I do however, know how our enemy works, for it is the same for us all. Through lies, deceptions and discouragements of all types he will attempt to dampen our flame, douse our fire. Today stir up, by faith, the good that God has done in you. Stir it up, throw on some fuel, sing that song that lifts your spirit, read that promise once again and believe. to be continued.......
