Reject a Fearful Spirit
“The peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)
One of Satan’s favorite tools is to get you to question “What if?”
Dedicated Christians get trapped into hoarding because they fear the “what if ” of retirement, disability, unemployment, or economic collapse.
Obviously, God wants us to consider these things and even plan for them, within reason. But when fear dictates to the point that giving to God’s work is hindered, foolish risks are assumed and worry becomes the norm, rather than the exception. Then contentment is impossible.
Christians must consciously reject this attitude of fear.
To claim God’s victory, it may be necessary for you to face your fear. If your fear is a lack of surplus, it may be necessary to live without it in order to conquer that fear.
But remember above all else, “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
