Fear is a liar.

The future is a stranger, but if the two of you focus on the One who holds your future then neither of you will have to worry about what it may hold.

Fear… Whew… Fear is such a liar yet is sometimes so easy to believe. It is so easy to freak out when the finances don’t amount to the bills. Or when a loved one is really sick. Or when the car breaks down. Or when ________… You fill in the blank. There are so many different circumstances and situations that pull us towards fear. Fear is always trying to creep its way into our lives and into our marriages. However, we serve a God that is far more worthy of our attention and energy than those lies that are trying to cripple us and put strains on our marriages. Today is the day to turn your worry into praise and thank God that you have nothing to worry about. Thank Him that you can literally trust Him with everything, and tell Satan that you’re not buying his lies. 

For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord , ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 NASB
