Greetings my christian brothers and sisters and lovers of Our Lord and His Christ, In today's world the economy is very bad but that is only a fact and we as believers shouldn't live our lives based on facts. We ought to live our lives based on the truth of God's Word.
You may find yourself in a very tough place today. Maybe you have spent the very last dollar in your purse not knowing where your next meal is coming from. Maybe you are jobless, homeless, penniless and broke. Maybe you don't even have a family member or a friend to help you rise again. Maybe you are even in a third world country that offer's little to no support to it's countrymen who are going through a difficult time.
I personally know what it is like to be in all the above mentioned situation but I found a way out. The way out I found is God!! It may sound silly to the mind that is educated in the things of this world and not the things of God but that doesn't make it any less true. The thing is this beloved, God is our Source. and we were never meant to bear the weight of our own provision. Now when I say that I don't mean that you aren't suppose to work. What I mean is that you should see God as your Ultimate source and that job as as a resource. Any day we start seeing a job or another person as our source that is the day that spells trouble because when that thing or that person stop flowing with the finance that is the day we will loose our joy and our peace.
I trust that most if not all of you reading this sees God as your Ultimate Source, therefore the purpose of this blog today is more of a reminder to boost your faith in believing God for provision!!
Here are some of God's wonderful promises concerning provision!!
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
