Reframe Your World View

The economy is on the mind of everyone these days. It dominates the headlines on radio, on television and in the newspaper. My email box has been full of questions and prayer requests from those in our church that are reeling from the news of the last few weeks. And the news isn’t good news. Words like recession, depression, downturn and uncertainty dominate the discussion.

I’m not a fortune teller, and I cannot predict the future. But I am a life-long student of the God’s Word. Based upon the truth of scripture, here are FOUR TRUTHS you can build your life on in uncertain times and regardless of economic news:
  • God is still in charge
  • God will give you peace if you call on Him
  • God will give you all you need if you put Him first
  • God will use you more in a time of crisis than in a time of calm

Anyone can have “sunny day” faith, but it doesn’t hold in difficult times. Throughout the ages, it has been during times of crisis that Christianity and God’s people have had the most impact.

You can live your life by the latest report from the News Networks, which change on a daily basis, or you can live your life trusting in God’s unchanging Word and the God who is in control of it all.

Whatever you do, fill your mind MORE with the WORD OF GOD than you do with the DAILY NEWS.

Let God's Word reframe your view of the world. The best is yet to come.
