The spirit of fear is what the devil uses against us.



2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.



The spirit of fear cannot stay in the midst of love because love is a more powerful spirit.

Not a spirit of fear, but of power.


Since the spirit of fear was not given by God, it means that it was deposited by none other than the devil. The spirit that God gave us is mentioned in the Scripture above. We should seek to have more of those good spirits in our lives and less of the spirit of fear.


Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 



God gave us not the spirit of fear but of power. The Bible said we received power when we were filled with the Holy Ghost. Power means that we are not to be dominated by any evil spirit including the spirit of fear.


The power of the Holy Ghost is to help us in preaching the Gospel, fight the good fight of faith, and overcome the things of this world.



God gave us the spirit of love.

1 Peter 4:8

Above all things have fervent charity (love) among yourselves: for charity (love) shall cover the multitude of sins.



The spirit of love is what God distributed, because God is love. Therefore we need to be more loving, especially us Christians. The unbelievers should be drawn to the house of the Lord and want to have a relationship with Him  because of the level of love we have for each other.


The spirit of fear cannot stay in the midst of love because love is a more powerful spirit. You cannot claim to love God and want to do the things that God commanded us not to do. If God be God serve Him.



spirit of fear

Satan uses the spirit of fear to attack our mind and make us less effective in doing the work of the Lord.

God gave us a sound mind.

Since the mind is what we use to serve God, we need to make sure we keep it pure and sober in His will, because the mind that is dominated by a spirit of fear cannot serve God. 


1 Peter 1:13

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope for the end for the grace which is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.


We are told to gird up the loins of our mind by being sober about the things of the Lord. We need to understand that the will of God is not a joke, it is serious business and we need to be serious about doing God's will.


Satan uses the spirit of fear to attack our mind and make us less effective in doing the work of the Lord. But when we are serious about serving God, we will never allow the devil to bound our mind with fear. 


God bless you
