Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
I can only take control of the day I am living in and that mandate has been given to every man on earth. Today is the day the Lord has made; therefore, what can I do for my life today that will make it worth all it can be? As I awoke this morning I made a declaration of faith for the day.
For today, God willing, I will not fear lack.
No! The word of God says in Phil. 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. I will trust the covenant God has made with me. We sometimes fear our children will not be provided for. God’s word says the seed of the righteous will not beg bread. Psalm 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. Therefore, today I will trust the covenant God made with me.
God says in His word that I am never alone and He is always with me. 1 Cor. 3:16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? As God promised in His covenant He made with all of us, He will never leave us nor forsake us. Deut. 31:6 Be strong and courageous! Do not fear or tremble before them, for the LORD your God is the one who is going with you. He will not fail you or abandon you! For today, I will believe God’s promise and walk in the truth of it.
We have a world full of growing fear and diseases to go along with the overcharged feelings of anxiety. No wonder sickness and disease are running rampant. So many have lost the ability to just be still and be at peace for the day they are in. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. For today, Lord God, I choose your peace and healing for my soul, mind and body.
God is greater than man and because of that, I can stop fearing what man can do to me. God is truth and speaks only truth. God loves us perfectly and there is no fear in His love. 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. For today, I will trust the covenant God made with me. For today, God willing, I will not fear the fears of life. Amen!
