I didn’t spend loads of time praying today. I did more thinking.
Too often I live in a poverty-conscious mode. That is, I keep expect that I will run out of resources (usual financial) before all tasks/needs have been met.
I have actually reach the point of an anxiety attack! 😦
This is not of God, I know. What do I do?
1. I started rehearsing how far I have come in building a stable financial base for myself. (Years ago, I didn’t even have my own checking account.)
2. I quoted scriptures regarding how God will provide for me .(Proverbs 22:4 By humility and fear of the Lord are riches, honor, and life.) Worrying about lack is not what I am supposed to be keeping on my mind. I need to focus on today. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough trouble in it (Matthew 6:34).
3. I searched online and started reading others quotes and explanations about the provision of God. (http://dailychristianquote.com/dcqprovision.html and http://thingsgodtaughtme.wordpress.com/2007/07/01/according-to-the-riches-of-glory-what-does-that-mean/)
4. I will close this entry with a challenge question. What day has come that God did not provide what you needed, not wanted, for that day?
I can think of no day. There has never been a day that I needed a supply of something: be it money, food, or someone to help me that it was not provided?
Can you think of such a day?
