Hebrews 13:5-7 (NKJV)

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

The Lord is our Helper. We should never be afraid of anything in any area of our lives. Wherever we may fall short the Lord is there to help us. We must practice thinking of Him immediately when we need help of any kind. Before we wonder which human being can help us, we should say, “Lord, help me.” He knows exactly who to use, and when we practice seeing Him, and not people as our Source, we will see help come much faster. We slow things down when we panic and act like we are responsible for our own help.

The author of Hebrews says we should behave ourselves in a manner that shows we are content with what we have and not concerned about what somebody else has that we wished we had. Because the Lord has promised never to leave or forsake us we should be confident He will provide all we need and be satisfied. It doesn’t mean we can’t want things but it does mean that we are content with what we have until the Lord blesses us to have what we want. Knowing that the Lord is with us eternally should free us from fear and bring us joy every day.
