God’s Economics for Tough Times (2)

Posted: June 8, 2010 in General

‘…Do not worry about tomorrow...’ Matthew 6:34 NKJV

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)
