I know that gnawing feeling in the pit of your stomach that keeps you awake at night. It’s all about fear and doubt. I know what it feels like to have creditors begin to surround you like wolves around wounded prey and there seems no way out. But there is always a way out. Just because you don’t know it, doesn’t mean there isn’t one. I believe the best way to position yourself to see the way out, is to choose to feed on His faithfulness. When you’re feeding on His faithfulness, it’s hard to feed on doubt, fear and unbelief too.
Today, stop from giving any more time to anxiety, fear and doubt. Recall a problem in the recent past, that in the moment of the acute crisis, you saw no solution and there was no help on the horizon. Then, a little time later, an answer, solutions, help, came. We all have situations that in retrospect, we see how amazing that situation worked out. It is important to identify and recall those times as they are examples of God’s faithfulness and sovereignty and our finiteness. You know how you were told while you were growing up to starve a fever and feed a cold, well it’s time to starve your unbelief and feed on His faithfulness.

Dear Father God,
I thank You Father for Your Word which gives me hope, peace and joy. I have been feeding on all the wrong stuff. I have been feeding on negativity, worry…doom and gloom. My mind spins out of control…especially when I try to sleep. Help me my Lord to feed on Your faithfulness. Help me build myself up on Your most holy faith Lord. Help me practice the patience You are building in me through Your Holy Spirit to wait for Your timing and not demand mine. I pray in the Holy Spirit and in the name of the Son, Jesus Christ, and all God’s people said – AMEN!
Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit
