I am not afraid of the dwindling economy. I am not afraid of terrorists. I am not afraid of the credit crunch. I am not afraid of my home being foreclosed. I am not afraid that I will be out of work forever. I am not afraid of running out of food. I am not afraid of running out of money. I am not afraid that my son cannot attend his school. I am not afraid of home invaders or robbers. I am not afraid of the IRS. I am even not afraid that my car will break down. I am simply not afraid.
Fear is not an option in my life. I have a promise from God that “All things will work together for good, for those who love Him…” And I am standing on that promise! I no longer live in the economy of this world and so, I am no longer afraid of its repercussions. I give because I want to – I have to – give!
I stand confident on that promise! I believe that God would bankrupt Heaven on my behalf! I believe that if I were the only human on Earth, he would have sent a Savior just for me!
He created the Heavens so that I could have something to look at. He created flowers so that I could have something nice to smell. He created the mountains so I could have something big to climb. He created the seas so that I could have something vast to swim. He created the sand so something would feel warm on my skin. He created the Moon so that I could read at night.
I choose God’s Word over the “Wisdom” of our American culture. I choose Life!
I choose to not be afraid. I choose not to take a path that will leave me shaking in my shoes. I choose what I will think about. I choose what I will become. I choose who I am today. I choose truth above the lies that this world’s society presents to me.
I choose. I choose. I choose. And in the end – I will win. Because God said so!
