2 Timothy 1:7 expanded/ expounded

For the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear (timidity, fearfulness, and cowardice) but he has given us a spirit of power
(1) strength power, ability
a) inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth
b) power for performing miracles
c) moral power and excellence of soul
d) the power and influence which belong to riches and wealth
e) power and resources arising from numbers
f) power consisting in or resting upon armies, forces, hosts

of Love (affection, good will, love, benevolence, brotherly love)

and a sound mind (an admonishing or calling to soundness of mind, to moderation and self-control)

WOW who knew that it actually meant that! Love it.
