Unless you lived through the Great Depression you’ve never experienced times like the present: bank failures, bailouts, housing repossessions, unemployment etc. You can see fear on people’s faces and sense it in their words.
So where do we turn? To politicians, economists or our own resources? No human agency is capable of providing answers. So: know your source!
The Bible predicted the shaking of human kingdoms and material entities: ‘...so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain’ (Hebrews 12:27 NAS) But while bureaucracies, businesses and banks have been shaken to their very core, our King and His Kingdom remain rock solid.
The Bible says that ‘…God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.’ (2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV) Notice the ‘alls’ in this promise. What more could you ask for? Your family, health, spiritual, material, present and future security is guaranteed under the ‘policies and resources’ clause of God’s unshakeable kingdom!
Man’s economy is not your source. It’s merely one conduit the King may, or may not, use in providing what you need as a citizen of His Kingdom. Relax, knowing God, your unfailing source, ‘…will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 4:19 NIV)
Deut 9:13–29, Luke 4:1–13
Never before, in my life, has there been nothing that i have wanted or nothing that i haven't been jealous of someone else for having. My whole life, there was always material things that i wanted so badly, that not having them made me unhappy.
Today, i can not think of one thing, that i want or need, that i do not have. I have my family, my health, wonderful friends, and every single one of my spiritual and material needs met, and i have complete faith that will continue to be the case.
Do you have any idea how wonderful it feels, to be happy and satisfied with everything that i have, and for the first time in my life, to want for nothing?
It is AMAZING.
I did not get to sleep until after midnight last night! I think my veggie soup turns me in to energy girl. Every time i make it, i stop being drowsy and sleepy and end up with loads of energy. I am going to spend my day in the yard again...cause that pile of weeds is not quite tall enough for my liking...haha but first i am going to have a bit more of a sleep in!
Good morning Sunshine!
