Daily Dependence

I try not to be a Chicken Little. Even if the sky is falling, what good is it to shout it throughout the barnyard? Can the cow, the goat, or the pig do anything about it if its true? And most times, just as the actual children's story goes...the sky isn't really falling. And Chicken Little only managed to whip up hysteria and panic.

Last night President Obama and John Boehner made speeches about our financial status in America. The sky according to them is falling. The only debate is over how to best take cover. I could not help as I listened but to let my mind flash on images of the dollar crashing, people enduring hardships, further globalization measures, one world currency, religion, and every NWO conspiracy & End Times speculation fully manifesting within just a few years.

But then I stopped. Those are thoughts designed to instill worry and fear. And according to 2 Timothy 1:7 God does not give us a spirit of fear. We can be assured that if God didn't give it to us, its probably not worth having! The Israelites that fled from Egypt experienced one of the craziest times in recorded history. They had no country, they had no government, they had no income, they only had the possessions that they could carry with them and an Awesome God to provide for them. And provide He did...for forty years in a desolate dessert environment. Whether He made food rain down from heaven or water to gush from a rock...He provided.

He gave just enough for each day and commanded that there be no excess. Any who even tried to store up extra manna found it to be rotten by the next morning. God wanted His people to depend and TRUST in Him day by day, minute by minute. I feel led to remind you of this as you absorb the facts of the times we are living in!

God's Blessings to you and yours!

I think a big chunk of sky hit Nancy Pelosi on the head!
