From Fear To Fortune

Several years ago a magazine reported that an organization offered $5000 to anyone who could capture a wolf alive and bring it to them. Reading about this opportunity, Sam and Jed decided to go on a wolf hunt! The first night, they put up their tent, got into their sleeping bags and went to sleep. Sam was suddenly awakened by the sound of wolves howling nearby. “Wake up, Jed,” he cried. “We’re rich!” What an attitude.

At one time or another, it seems as though the “wolves of life” surround us. We hear their cries and sense their presence. But that which would frighten us and bring fear into our lives can be captured and brought under God’s control. There are times when we must look to the One who will bring us victory over the circumstances that surround us, protection from the fears that would beset us and peace when the storms of life would destroy us. We will always be victorious when we put our trust in a God Who loves us and will deliver us from all evil. In Him, we will find the riches of life.

Prayer: Dear Jesus, help me to think thoughts that enable me to see that which brings the riches of Your promises into my life. May I look to You to find that which is eternal, important, significant and purposeful: in Your name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Philippians 4:8
