Live Every Day With Joy and Without Fear
To experience joy every day and to live each day without fear is what I ask, and I believe what Christ offers when we walk in him and him in us.
Stay away from the love of money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, I will never, never fail you nor forsake you. That is why we can say without any doubt or fear The lord is my helper and I am not afraid of anything that mere man can do to me.
My biggest fears are around money, losing it, not having enough of it... Yet, God has always provided for me very generously. So why do I doubt him and fear this? These are earthly fears and doubts from Satan. Please forgive me Lord for my doubts and faithlessness. I confess that I am weak, but in Christ, who strengthens me, I can do all things.
It is not even money that I desire. I desire to live fully, with Joy and Love, to feel the purpose of life that God has given me. Today I put my fears aside, with the knowledge that Christ is my Lord and Savior and he has promised to lift me up and save me and forgive me.
When I have even the smallest fear I will say - The Lord is my helper and I am not afraid !
