Dealing with the Fear of Lack

 Deu:2:7  For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.

When we look at this scripture we see God God has declared our hands blessed, He is saying I have equipped and empowered you to be successful through out all I ha e called you to do.He said Israel walked through the wilderness 40yrs. And lacked nothing , nothing means nothing.

 Many times we see our needs  and our wants as the same but that isnt what  the word says ,Luke9:3-4 Jesus told His disiciples to go take nothing for the Journey! He was teaching them to how to fully Trust God, 6 says they never lacked anything. Knowledge Is Power. 

Ps.34:10 says when we seek Him According to His  word and in line  with our needs we will not lack those things.(food ,shelter, clothes, )  Hoesa4:6 says Gods people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge. Destroyed in Hebrew means cut off.As result they live their life cut off from the provisions God has made. Fear : Attack on marriages   1 Cor.13:9 Charity never faith.  

Gods goal is to see man and woman married to rasise Godly children so they are kingdom minded . The curse came that day in the garden by disobeying God, a curse entered that day which was driven by fear and resulted in selfishness. 2 Tim.4:1-3  says people would be lovers of themselves , fear breeds selfishness which always causes us to turn our back on God. Marriages go through seasons , some may not feel like the honeymoon stage, during that timewe must be loving toward each other  on purpose look for ways to move on beyond our selfish feelings. Don't run from Your Development.  

The key is to understand even if the other person does not change , we must stay committed to walk in Love 1Cor.13:8 says Love never fails, that means we can never apply love to any situation and not ultimately see change take place.Choose to love them like Jesus.God Bless you
