The truth about numbers

“I will not be afraid of many thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around.”  (Psalm 3: 6)
Numbers are powerful.  Ask any politician.  Here are some of the numbers that frighten us:
  • ·         Bills
  • ·         Taxes
  • ·         Bank statements
  • ·         Vital statistics
  • ·         Polling results
How do you handle the fear?  There was a time in my life when I opened my bank statements with trepidation.  I dreaded the unsavory but necessary task.  One day, it occurred to me that I could apply the law of prayer to it.  And so I did.  Before I opened my bank statement or any correspondence, I asked God to help me not to be afraid but rather to trust Him.  Your situation might be different.  It could be that message from your doctor or maybe your boss.  Whatever the numbers, the same law of prayer will work for you.
