Right now, things look pretty dim for the average American. Gas is $3.45 and climbing. The unemployment rate is about as high as it has ever been. College tuitions are going up. The price of food and clothing are expected to rise to adjust for the increase in gasoline prices. For the church, things could not be better.
What do I mean by that? You are about to see among those who call themselves Christians who really has faith in God and who doesn’t. I believe that a line has been drawn in the sand. There will be people who complain and freak out and then there will be those who believe that God is truly their provider and they will continue to follow in obedience and trust in Him like they always have.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths.
God is all Sovereign, the Creator, our Provider. Do we believe what we say? We use these terms in church. We sing them in our songs. Do we actually believe that God is who he says he is?
I don’t plan on listening to complainers. I don’t plan on taking advice from those who don’t know Christ. I don’t plan on getting wrapped up in the drama that the media feeds us.
My God is in my tomorrow. My God holds the future. My God will supply all my need according to His riches in glory. I have no need to worry about what I cannot control.
God calls us to obedience.
