I do not wish to put my trust in man’s assurance that he, at a price and to his profit, will grudgingly compensate me for losses should calamity strike. Rather, I wish to put my trust in the One Who, for my sake, freely prevents damage.
Should He permit damage to occur for my heart’s sake, I can be assured that He will generously replenish in due time. I also know He will be faithful to provide all my needs in the interim.
If, in His wisdom, He should determine that I should suffer loss, what man or insurance program is there that can prevent Him? On the other hand, if I have no insurance or men appointed to guard me from damage or loss, but God chooses to favor me, will He not keep me? Plainly, this is a matter of faith.

There is the prevalent, yet false and mortal notion that believers can eat what and as they please because they are Christians, have no need to bother about the physical and “have the Great Chemist within” Who will sort everything out and make it all good simply because He is asked to do so and thought to have ordained such an arrangement. Nothing can be farther from the truth, yet is preached as truth by almost all those who name His Name. There is clear direction as to what a believer's diet should be.
When I first looked into this tapping therapy, I recognized some value in it. However, as I examined it further, I realized that the believer’s principles of acceptance of one’s circumstances and giving thanks for them are far more powerful and effective. It has been my pleasure and privilege to turn midnight to high noon within minutes, if not seconds, just by giving God thanks and praise for tough situations within and without. What could be more powerful than that?
