What Goes UP...

Well the story today from the stock market is positive. If you are one who checks the figures everyday, and your emotions are governed by the ups and downs of the market, then today you're on a high. But hang on...tomorrow is coming and who knows what that will bring? I have an answer for that...God knows. And what's more, He is prepared to protect and provide for those who trust Him instead of their bank account or their stock portfolio. The scriptures tell us that He is the same "yesterday, today and forever". What a relief! God is not going to change at the whim of the market, OPEC, or the latest hot-shot politician. The promises He made to His people in the Old Testament are still there for His people today. However, the requirement for benefiting from those promises is also the same...obedience. Jesus summed up the promises and the requirement in Matthew 6:32-33. "Why be like the pagans who are so deeply concerned about these things? Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and He will give you all you need from day to day if you live for Him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern." (NLT)
So...regardless of where the market is today, or tomorrow, my needs are guaranteed by the Creator of the Universe so long as I live for Him and focus on His Kingdom. And that will NEVER change.
