Fearless

Financial fears fade if we proclaim: The Lord is my helper

Financial Fears
Who is Your Helper? – Part 2

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 13:5-9

Key Verse: Hebrews 13:6

So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”

Continuing from yesterday’s devotional, I want you to consider the phrase: “So I can say with confidence…” (Hebrews 13:6).  Confidence is a wonderful feeling; it’s a sense that all is well.  When is the last time you have felt that way when it comes to your finances?  Even for you that have plenty of money, do you have inner thoughts of all that going away?

The Lord wants us to have confidence in our life, but He wants us to find it in Him!  No other source can truly say to you: “I will never fail you.”  As in yesterday’s devotional, no amount of money is truly enough when our economy blows up.  We live in a very volatile world; there really are no guarantees that wealthy people will continue to be wealthy people.  During the Great Depression, the world watched people jump to their death from their office windows because they lost everything.  It is obvious that their hope and helper was money and it failed them—big time!

The title of this devotional is, “Who is Your Helper?’  Take a few moments and answer that question honestly. Can you say that the Lord is your helper?  Do you live with confidence?  Do any thoughts of financial fears fade away because you proclaim: The Lord is my helper?

Father, please examine my heart, I don’t want to put my trust in money.  I know you must be my source of help.  In Jesus’s name, amen.
