Economy To Get Worse Before It Gets Better?

I shared an email with a friend recently. It was a quote from Charles Swindoll about Attitude Determining Altitude.

I was trying to share “HOPE”…

He replied with brief thanks for the encouragement……. … and then he went right on to share a link to a HORRIBLE VIDEO NEWS REPORT about how the economy is going to get worse before it gets better.

Now don’t get me wrong when I say this video news report is HORRIBLE.  It is actually well done, and probably accurate.  But it is so discouraging when such a HORRIBLE SET OF PREDICTIONS are made by some news pundit (currently playing on yahoo finance page).

SO MY QUESTION FOR YOU TODAY is – WHAT (or WHO) ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE?

I serve a risen savior, have access to the self same power that raised him from the dead, command an army of angels, and cannot be overcome.  I believe the author/creator of it ALL who said darkness cannot overcome light.

I encourage you to turn the news off and create your own future – independent of the herd!

OK…  OK… Reality does have to be dealt with. I know… But only by “EARTH PEOPLE” : )

Those of us who are spiritual can walk on water, part the red sea, feed thousands with little, and otherwise “bind and loose” with help from our Father in Heaven.  If you don’t know what this power is, “to bind and loose” then search an online bible or get your butt to a church that lives it and JOIN IN!

So… Soldier…  (In my best General Patton Voice) It’s time to get up, out of that bunker, and charge straight into the face of the enemy – just to prove it can be done.

This enemy might be called the NIGHTLY NEWS, or BAD NEWS (AKA “Troubling Spirits” in OT Lexicon). IT’S TIME TO TAKE SOME GROUND FOR THE KINGDOM, AND SHOW THE WORLD AND THE ENEMY THAT WE CAN DO WHAT MERE MORTALS CANNOT!

When we go forward with hope, that shines a light into a dark place.  People will want to know what drives us…  That’s when we can share a testimony with great result!

When it’s over, and the day is done, and you have accomplished your miracle…  Share – Teach – Show the WAY : )

Oh, yeah… LEST WE FORGET – Each day is new, so…. you get to win, and accomplish miracles, and share, teach, show the way – EVERY DAY : )

PS – I just did my part…..  NOW IT’S YOUR TURN : )

    We must remember that we are in this world , but not of this world. My life as a Christian is governed by kingdom principles that are not bound by the economic system of the world.

    As Christians we seem to forget that we have been given promises of abundance in the time of famine. We are the head and not the tail. My last dollar is not my last dollar , but a seed that promises to bring me a harvest beyond measure.

    God has given us unmerited favor which has been over-shadowed by negative circumstances. We can receive raises even when the company is cutting cost and laying off.

    Even in an down economy, God’s Favor and His blessings are at their best. The question comes, “Who’s Report Shall You Believe?” My friend I don’t know about you, but I shall believe the report of the Lord!!!

    kingdcd: I believe as you do… And I have my own answer to this next question, but wondering –

    What do you tell the believer who is hurting, hungry, laid off, suffering from this economy?

    What do you tell the believer who is hurting, hungry, laid off, suffering from this economy? It’s vital to lift that person up, let them know that you love them, and will do anything in your power to help them. Give them anything they need if it’s in your power to do so. Remind them how God provides for the birds, etc… and how much more they are worth to God than the birds or the lillies, etc…

    What do you tell the believer who is hurting, hungry, laid off, suffering from this economy? This is something really hard for me. I know what to do when I find myself in this situation. I pray to Jesus, look for opportunities, and keeping pressing on. But when I see my family in Christ in that situation, I don’t know what to say. I’m better at doing then talking. I can reach out with my time, possessions, and love and pray that God would continue to work in their lives.

    I don’t think there is an easy answer to this situation.
