We live in a wonderful time in history when men and women are asking questions that only the God who rules and reigns in the affairs of men can answer. Nations are experiencing difficult moments with the loss of jobs, homes, relationships like it has never been in history of mankind, but the encouragement this week is simply “DO NOT FEAR”. The Psalmist said, “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread” Has God ever failed you? Your answer is No? Or may be yours is Yes? Don’t be afraid, just like to encourage you today, He will not fail you if you can trust Him enough: “You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you”. He will also use you to be a blessing to people around you at this time of recession.
It is always difficult for people during these times, the key to living well this period is living within your means, cutting down on all unnecessary spending and impulse buying, focusing on the real and important things in life that would help you. See God in everything you do and know that things would only get better. There would always be bills to pay, things would always call for attention, I sat in my living room watching soccer when i heard my air-conditioner go quiet, I wondered why, looked closely and the switch is burnt, now that’s a bill that would be paid.
Always remember, “GOD CAN NEVER BE ON RECESSION”. Stop figuring everything out in your own ways; instead learn to lean on God. Walk in love to keep your doors of opportunities open, be diligent in your business, build a strong work ethics, nurture your family, be ready to share your talents with others and above all do not let His Word depart from your mouth, meditate on it day and night, make it the pillar of your decisions, be discerning to do everything written in it, then you will be prosperous and successful. Do not be discouraged, God will be with you wherever you go”. As long as you are working in this reality, He will ensure the work of your hands are blessed, even if you don’t have a job at the moment or maybe you just even lost one. He will come through for you in this season.
