How ya living? Fear or Faith?

I was reading my KCM devotional this morning and two key points stuck out.  I probably have blogged about them in a similar way, but thought I would share them with you this morning.

In the world's way of thinking, money has no value unless fear is applied to it. Think about this:
Fear says, "I've worked hard for this. I may not have another opportunity to have this much again, so I'd better hold on to it as long as I can...'cause you never know.'"

Faith, on the otherhand, says, "I received all these riches by believing God, and as long as God is around, there is always more where this came from." 

And isn't that so true?  both statements?  I've been on both sides-the side of allowing fear to make me think this is all I have, and the side of faith, knowing GOD will continue to provide.  Guess which side is easy and light?  :D 
Matthew  11:30-"For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light"

But isn't that true with all the principles of life?  If we trust GOD for our finances, our health, restoration in relationships, etc, isn't it that we are living opposite of fear and living a full and an abundant life?  and isn't that what we are called to do? 

Blessings until next time!

Absolutely! I have a quote written in a notebook, "What I hoard, I lose. What I give, I keep" Seems backwards to most people, but it's all about fear and faith.

As Creflo Dollar has said...I don't have fear in running out. I have faith in running over!

Oh yes, Bobbi!!! Fear and faith can no more co-exist than light and darkness can. ONE has to leave. I choose to live in faith and send fear running!!!

First of all... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I had my computer speakers turned all the way up when I clicked on your blog and Third Day started blasting Creed at me to the point that I thought I was going to have a heart attack. THEN I started laughing at myself so hard that I almost wet myself. (I know better than to click on Bobbi's blog with my speakers all the way up!) lol!

Secondly, I needed that reminder today. Thank you!

LOVE YA!!

Hello, my Cheesey Girl~

I absolutely LOVE what Kela said: "What I hoard, I lose. What I give, I keep!" Oh, how true that statement is!

God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of a sound mind. We can only be afraid of something if WE let it!

I love you bunches, my precious friend!

Blessings~
