Have you ever thought about what it means to be given "the spirit of power and love and sound mind" as stated in 2 Timothy 1:7? With this spirit of power, shouldn't all enemies of God cower before us as we call them out for what they are? With this spirit of love, shouldn't we be able to bridge any gap and overcome any difference among us? With this spirit of a sound mind, which means sound judgment or discipline, shouldn't we be able to see through the traps of the adversary and the cunning selfishness of our own minds and always think, speak and act in exact accordance with God’s will? If it were only that easy! The fact is, we need to develop these things and engage them as tools in our everyday fight against all things godless. So, instead of imagining ourselves as superhero avengers who have the power to call out evil, let us instead see ourselves as blessed to be learning how to use what God has given!
