fear not

"I will help thee, says the Lord." - Isaiah 41.14 

"It is but a small thing for Me, thy God, to help thee. Consider what I have done already. What! not help thee? Why, I bought thee with My blood. What! not help thee? I have died for thee; and if I have done the greater, will I not do the less? Help thee! It is the least thing I will ever do for thee; I have done more, and will do more. Before the world began I chose thee. I made the covenant for thee. I laid aside My glory and became a man for thee; I gave up My life for thee; and if I did all this, I will surely help thee now. In helping thee, I am giving thee what I have bought for thee already. If thou hadst need of a thousand times as much help, I would give it thee; thou requirest little compared with what I am ready to give. 'Tis much for thee to need, but it is nothing for me to bestow. 'Help thee?' Fear not! 'I will help thee.'" - Spurgeon

I love that quote, especially this line: "'Tis much for thee to need, but it is nothing for me to bestow."

Our biggest problem is self-sufficiency, but when we're ready to let that go, God is more than able (and willing) to bestow.

I hope you're doing well!
