THIS WEEK’S THOUGHT CONDITIONER

Daily Guideposts – Dr Norman Vincent Peale

Thought Conditioner No. 11


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

Your fears can be healed by this text. It tells us, first, that fear is overcome by power. What power? There is only one force more powerful than fear, and that is faith. When fear comes to your mind, counter it with an affirmation of faith.

Second, love overcomes fear. By love is meant trust, confidence, complete dependence upon God. Practice this attitude and fear will diminish.

The third element is to attain a sound mind in which there are no complexes, quirks, and obsessions. Live with the thought of God, and you will develop a sound mind where no shadowy fear can lurk.

Whenever you are afraid, verbalise against the thing that you fear, using the words of this text.
