What a Day to Be Alive!!!

In the midst of all the gloom and doom about the economy the Christian should be shining like a lighthouse, showing where safe harbor is for those who are adrift in the world today. Scripture tells us that we have a hope that the world doesn't have. Romans 15:13 records these words of the Apostle Paul. " Now may the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing, so that you may over flow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." The writer of Hebrews reminds us that "Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you or forsake you.' Therefore, we may boldly say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"" (Heb. 13:5-6)
Another scripture passage that should give us comfort in these trying times is 2 Chronicles 16:9 "For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to show Himself strong for those whose hearts are completely His." In other words, God wants to point out to the world those who are dependent on Him by blessing them mightily. That is what the psalmist was saying in the 23rd Psalm..."You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows."
Rejoice, Christian. God is in control, and He is not about to let His people be overwhelmed by the circumstances of the world. Again, scripture reminds us that we have overcome the world by our faith.
