“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.”
How important it is to keep faith in the forefront of our every day lives. Faith is the remedy for fear. It is not enough to declare our faith in God. We must own it, live it. How many times do we allow fear to block us from receiving the abundance God has reserved for us? Fear over relationships not working out as we want them to. Fear over finances. Anxiety is a powerful tool of the enemy who wants to keep us off balance and one step short of the joy that is His Promise. It is our responsibility to “know,” to “own” that all is as it should be. Even when we do not see the purpose of our challenges. It is up to us to trust that He will not abandon nor forsake us.
OH LORD, HELP ME EACH DAY I RISE TO FOCUS AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE WITH ME. I WILL PRACTICE EACH MORNING BEING AWARE OF YOUR PRESENCE UNTIL IT COMES AS NATURALLY AS MY BREATHING AND I OWN THAT MY JOURNEY IS IN YOUR HANDS. GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO KNOW THAT ALL WILL WORK ACCORDING TO YOUR PURPOSE AND TRUST THAT ALL IS AS IT SHOULD BE. AMEN.
