“What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.” Psalm 56:3.
What are you afraid of? The Psalmist knew exactly what to do when fear came upon him. He trusted in the Lord. Trust in God is able to banish all fear. Trust is total reliance on and confidence in God. If you rely on God totally and you are confident that He is able to get you pass whatever it is that you fear, then fear will quickly disappear. Are you afraid of facing today because you are not sure what it may bring? Do like David, take your eyes off the circumstances and trust in the Lord. God is able to do immeasurably more that you can ask of think.
You are rich in Christ no matter how much money you have! There is no poor Christian! Prosperity is not about money. Money can’t buy real peace and happiness. ~Malene Mendoza~
My Daughter is Your Reward
Once there was a millionaire, who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The millionaire also had a beautiful daughter who was single. One day he decides to throw a huge party, and during the party he announces, “My dear guests . . . I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars or my daughter to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge alive!”
As soon as he finished his last word, there was the sound of a large splash!! There was one guy in the pool swimming with all he could and screaming out of fear. The crowd cheered him on as he kept stroking as though he was running for his life. Finally, he made it to the other side with only a torn shirt and some minor injuries. The millionaire was impressed.
He said, “My boy that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn’t think it could be done! Well I must keep my end of the bargain. Do you want my daughter or the one million dollars?”
The guy says, “Listen, I don’t want your money, nor do I want your daughter! I want the person who pushed me in that water!”
When I am afraid I will trust in you Lord!
