It infuriates me when children of God are worried about the economy, the decline of health care, and all the stress this world has to offer. Do you really know who makes and controls this universe, plus everything and everyone in it? Is worrying a testimony of your lack of faith and trust in the only true God? or is it an indication of which god you are serving?
As children of God, the things of this world should not trouble, bother, concern or worry us so much because the Bible tells us in Matthew 6:27-31,”Which of us by worrying can add one cubit to his stature…therefore do not worry.” Then 1 John 2:15-16 warns us to
love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Did not God’s word tell us to cast all our cares upon Him, because He cares for us ( 1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 55:22). Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:27-28, “All things have been delivered to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” Here is the best part, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.
Now after hearing that why are we concerned and overwhelmed by a failing economy, when we know who is in control. God distinctly tells us that, He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). Where in it have He said He will supply our needs according to the economy, the politicians, your job, or any earthly vessel. The Bible tells us faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).
Whose words are you listening to? Gods or mans? Which God are you serving? The god of this world or the God of the whole universe? Who is your eternal father? Who is your supplier? Who are you looking to or at? The government, and its political system who can’t help you, because they are looking for help themselves. Have you forgotten God’s word and His promises?
Listen children of God, we are warned in 1 Timothy 4:1 that we are operating, and functioning in the latter days, where people are abandoning their faith and following deceptive spirits, and things taught by demons, are you one of them? Lets go back to singing songs like: “Oh! Lord my God, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, thy power throughout the universe displayed. Have you consider the world Gods hands have made?”
Have you forgotten how great His faithfulness is? Morning by morning new mercies we see, all we ever needed His hands have provided. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the savior of all men, especially of those who believe (1 Timothy 4:9-10). In verse fifteen(1 Timothy 4:15) we are told to meditate on God’s word and give ourselves totally and entirely to them so that our benefits or profits may appear to all.
Children of God consider your ways. Unbeliever consider your ways also. God sent His son Jesus Christ for a reason. To save us from destruction now and forever. Will you accept or rededicate your life to Him before it’s too late? Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.
Now to the King Eternal, Immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be the praise, glory, honor, and thanks for using me to minister to His children. May His grace, mercy, and peace be yours now and forever in Jesus name, Amen.
