To Encourage You

Reasons to fear abound today.The economy appears to be on a slippery slope with no end in sight.Prices on things keep going up.Crime is increasing.People are wondering how they're going to make it each month.They wonder if there will be anything left when they reach retirement age.As children of God we need not fear.For we have a God who loves us.A good God who delights in providing for all His children need.Notice I said "need"and not want.While there may be some adjustments on our parts in these financially scary times we have God's promises in His word to provide for all we need.It may not be what we always want and that's where we may have to adjust.But He will provide our needs.I trust these verses that follow will encourage you to place your faith in Him and His promise to provide:

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
I Peter 5:7

And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19

Do not be anxious about anything,but in everything,by prayer and petition,with thanksgiving,present your requests to God.And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding,will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Good Morning Adrienne!
Thank you for stopping by and commenting.I have run across some in recent days who are just very worried about things with the economy.I felt the Lord wanted me to remind readers of His promises to meet all of our needs.My husband and I have seen it time and again ourselves as we have lived on his disability checks alone for about 5 years now.We've never gone hungry or been homeless and for that I praise Him!Blessings~Sharon
