What are you seeing? Are you seeing the economy as the news is reporting? Double digit unemployed, slow growth, and stock mark taking a hit? Are you seeing what the economist and the president saying? I am not. I am seeing through the perspective of God. I may not see the economy thriving but I am seeing my personal economy thriving. I may not see the US debt decreasing but I am seeing and experiencing my personal debt decreasing.
What is the difference? I am looking at the economy through God’s perspective His promises never lie. Psalm 37:25-26 says I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. He is ever lending generously, and his children become a blessing. God does not allow his children to suffer. He will prvide his children bread for all those who want it earnestly.
Most people get stuck looking in the natural realm and never experience God and all of his benefits. I am not writing about prosperity for we are called as visitors on this earth and this is not our real home. God wants to share with you but you cannot look at this recession through the eyes of man. Our careers, finances, and life have to be looked through the eyes of an awesome God. How do you do that? Begin to read his word for your life. Jeremiah 29:11 says that For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Begin to study what it says about you and know that we will have trouble in this world but he will keep you. You will not be exempt from life issues for in James 1: 3-4 says, “You know that you learn to endure by having your faith tested. But you must learn to endure everything, so that you will be completely mature and not lacking in anything.” We will be tested but know that God is in complete control and he is not testing our faith but he is testing our seeing. So what are you seeing? See what God says and begin to do it!
