Life has a way of turning us from faith to fear. The Bible tells us that God does not cause us to fear (2 Timothy 1:17). God gives us the gift of confidence, love and a calm, well-balanced mind. So how do we make fear a non-factor in our lives? Apply the Word of God to your life everyday. Constantly remind yourself of Matthew 6:30-31, “Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” (King James Version of the Holy Bible)
    Prayer: Lord, I accept the gift of Your care and concern for me today. I cast aside my anxiety and choose to live care-free! Lord, I trust in your provision, power and plan for my life. I will not allow worry to distract me from trusting in You. Amen.
