fear can easily creep into my life as i ponder all that that life throws at me. in the middle of that fear i start to focus on what i am capable of and what i can handle in my own strength. i then put God in my little box thinking "how is he going to pull me through this?" fear is my challenge and my old habit is limiting God. God is perfect in power, all-knowing, the masterful creator, the alpha and omega, and most importantly he is love. my heart is filled in knowing who God is and that he still loves me. one of my favorite scriptures currently is:
"The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will TAKE GREAT DELIGHT IN YOU,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing."
how sweet it is to know that God delights in me. he woos me to him each day. even as i write this post all fear seems to fade as i rest in knowing that God delights in me. how cool is that? circumstances don't matter when my focus is on God. he's it! he's all that matters. everything else fails in comparison. i know if a few minutes satan will use fear to creep back into my life and i will have to choose to not fall into old habit. my prayer is that God will form a new habit in my life. i want praising God to be my habit.
