Kanaan Message for Today
You are afraid that God might ask you to make a sacrifice, that He might take something precious from you. This fear consumes you, keeping you from being happy. Put your trust in God. His heart is goodness and love. How could He demand something of you that would ultimately make you unhappy? That is impossible. Give to God of your own free will, trusting implicitly that giving in this spirit will make you strong and happy. God does not accept anything without giving in return. He will reward you abundantly for every sacrifice offered for His sake.
