TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAYConquering Your Fear of Lack (2)‘The Lord is my Shepherd … I shall not lack.’

Post by ozoemena on Mon Jun 13, 2016 6:15 pm

Thank God for today. God's really been faithful. Thank God for the topic introduced by the moderator.It's really my prayer that God should use me,rid me of myself and use me as his vessel. Because I know that the work is still great ahead.

Here's my contribution from "the word for today" by GSAF (UCB)

Why does the Bible compare us to sheep? Because they’re one of the most dependentcreatures in the world; they must trust in the shepherd for everything they need. Andthat’s how God wants you to live: in dependence on Him. When you constantly live in the fear of lack, you’re not trusting God enough. This core fear drives many of our other fears, including the fear of becoming disabled, or the fear of ageing, orthe fear of investing, or the fear of retiring poor. In its extreme form, fear of lack can lead to anxiety that requires you to live on antidepressants or other medication. It’s also one of the root causes of greed. You can become so obsessed with insuring yourself against the possibility of not having enough, that you hoard more than you’ll ever need. It can drive you to becomea workaholic so that neither you nor your children will ever experience discomfort, inconvenience, and helplessness. And like all fears, it’s based on an erroneous belief about God - in particular, His ability and willingness to take care of you. ‘The Lord ismy Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.’ Stop living as though you don’t believe what God has promised you! A good strategy is to learn the promises, understand the ones that are conditional, meet the conditions, and rest in His love and faithfulness. This doesn’t mean you sit idly by and wait for God to dowhat He has given you the ability to do. You must do the natural things, and trust Him for the supernatural ones.1 Chron 7-9,Acts 15:22-41© 2016: This devotional is produced by UCB

This topic and today's study really got to me.I remember times in my life when I thought I was done for, when everyone else seemed to have abandoned me.When I thought all is lost.God always proved he never forsakes those that trust in him.

Me too.I almost gave up on life, once attempted suicide,because all doors in life seemed to have been closed.. but then God gave me life, he put me in a place of greener pastures and restored my soul.
