The Sky Is Falling!!
Recent days would make one think that the sky is falling. Credit downgrade, riots in London, stock market dip, another recession. The news isn't doing us much good. The credit down grade isn't that big of a deal, really! There is more than meets the eye in the London riots. The stock market is being run by depressed people. Another recession? Did we ever finish the last one? I don't think so.
But when people find something to panic about - the yelling and screaming will carry on! When panic sets in, it makes bad matters worse.
So I would like to share with you a few reasons why the sky isn't falling today.
The Bible says that Jesus is going to return someday. It's called the Rapture and that we will meet Him in the air. So there will be a sky to meet Jesus in someday. It can't fall.
God has never been in nor will ever be in a recession. His credit will never be downgraded. His people will live well - in heaven - for all eternity. His retirement plan will never loose it's value.
God never panics. He never says, "Oh boy!" "Uh oh!" He doesn't sit on His throne, wringing His hands saying, "What am I going to do?"
God put the sky there, He is the only one who can take it down.
Fear is a powerful thing, that must be respected but never become your master. Would you like to guess which emotion is running Wall Street?
So let's review:
- The sky isn't falling.
- Panic and fear doesn't run God's economy.
Matthew 6:24-25 (NIV)
24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
