Look at the proud! Their spirit is not right in them, but the righteous live by their faith. (Habakkuk 2:4 NRSV)
John D. Rockefeller was one of the richest people who has ever lived. There is probably nothing of material value in this world that John D. Rockefeller could not provide for his children. Did you know, however, that he had a daughter who became obsessed with the fear that she would die penniless? Her years were haunted with the fear that she would die destitute. Can you imagine such a thing--a Rockefeller worried sick about money?

Can you imagine a child of God worried sick that he or she will go to God's well for spiritual resources in a time of need and find that well dry? God's resources are inexhaustible. Did you know that there are even churches that never venture out to do great works for God because they fear that God may let them down. Unbelievable! Our faith is a gift from God. He gives us faith according to our needs--the greater the need, the greater the faith.

Lord Jesus, let me put away my worries and focus on your unending grace. Amen.
