Do not neglect to do good

Do you allow the love of Jesus to rule in your heart and mind, and to move your will to choose what is good in accordance with his will?

"Do not forget or neglect to do kindness and good, to be generous and distribute and contribute to the needy [of the church as embodiment and proof of fellowship], for such sacrifices are pleasing to God."
(Hebrews 13:16 AMP)

"Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,  equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."  (Hebrews 13:20-21 NIV)

The Instinct of Faith

"The Instinct of Faith is an elevation and enlargement of the heart above and beyond all that is presented to the senses.
The life of faith and the Instinct of Faith are one and the same.  It is an enjoyment of the goods of God, and a confidence founded on the expectation of His protection, making everything pleasant and received with a good grace.  It is indifference to, and at the same time place, state or person."

Complete Abandonment to Divine Providence generates Faith that overcomes the world.  The Faith that overcomes the world is the Faith that Always knows that God is Always in control.

Be content with the money you have

Worry about money is real.  How does a Christian deal with this worry?

"Let your life be free from love of money but be content with what you have, for he has said, I will never forsake you or abandon you. Thus we may say with confidence:

The Lord is my helper,
and I will not be afraid.
What can anyone do to me?"
(Hebrews 13: 5-6 NABRE)

«Fear is useless; what is needed is trust» (Luke 8:50, Mark 5:36)

No fear, no worry, no doubt!

Growing to trust Jesus

How do you grow to trust in Jesus?

"Jesus told the Twelve to take nothing for their journey except a walking stick—no food, no traveler’s bag, no money.    He allowed them to wear sandals but not to take a change of clothes.   “Wherever you go,” he said, “stay in the same house until you leave town."
(Mark 6:8-10 NLT)

"Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength." (1Chronicles 29:12 NLT)

The Razor Precision Providence of God is Never Late!  God knows what you need and when you need it.

Endure your trials as discipline

Do you believe that God’s word has power to set you free and to transform your life?

"You must submit to and endure [correction] for discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there whom his father does not [thus] train and correct and discipline?"  (Hebrews 12:7 AMP)

"Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you."
(1 Peter 5:6 AMP)

Throw off Everything on way of progress

What kind of spiritual danger or harm should we avoid at all costs?

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith."
(Hebrews 12:1-2 NLT)

"In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood."
(Hebrews 12:4 NIV)

Do not scorn the corrections of Jesus

Is the Lord pruning you in any place?

"He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross. He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold and silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to the LORD."
(Malachi 3:3 NLT)

" And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,  “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,  because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”
(Hebrews 12:5-6 NIV)

Free yourself of all anxieties

Do you know the peace and security of a life submitted to God and to his Word?

"My desire is to have you free from all anxiety and distressing care."
(1 Corinthians 7:32 AMP)

"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done."
(Philippians 4:6 NLT)

«Fear is useless; what is needed is trust» (Luke 8:50, Mark 5:36)

No fear, no worry, no doubt!
