Are you suffering from 2019-O-Phobia? Sure, it's a "disease" I just made up...
But I bet you know EXACTLY what I mean. It's the fear of what might happen this year. You know the drill by now. Crises... shortfalls...recession... ad infinitum.
So now we all have a choice. We can either fall away toward fear or we can fall toward FAITH!
The truth is, none of us know the future. But I do know that living our lives by the ups and downs of the market is a very stressful (dare I say, hopeless) way to live.
In times of great uncertainty, we have to break away from the 24-hour news cycles that compete for our attention and focus on the unchanging, the eternal and the solid truths of life. Here are four TRUTHS that you can hold onto regardless of the economic news:
1- GOD IS STILL IN CHARGE (Hebrews 12:28).
2- CALL ON GOD AND HE WILL GIVE YOU PEACE (1 Peter 5:7).
3- GOD WILL GIVE YOU ALL YOU NEED IF YOU PUT HIM
FIRST (Matthew 6:33).
4- GOD WILL USE YOUR GENEROSITY EVEN MORE IN A TIME
OF CRISIS (1 Peter 2:12).
I trust that these truths will be an encouragement to you!
