What do we do???


It has certainly been an interesting couple of days on the financial front--with the stock market up and down, banks failing and being bought by other banks, warnings of impending recession or even depression. What are we to do?
I don't mean to minimize the problems we face, but God has NOT changed and He has promised to provice for our needs. I think this is something too many Americans, even Christians, tend to forget. If you thought government could "control" or "take care of" you, I trust you've been disabused of that notion by now. The economists can't even agree on what should be done to solve the problem, even when they agree on what the "problem" is. Our government has thus far shown us "politics as usual".
What is the answer? The only one we can depend on is God. Men may lie, or be mistaken, but God cannot do either. He is the only true ONE. Some people will be "forced" to turn to God, to grope after Him, although He is not far from each of us; for in Him we live, and move, and have our very being."
Are you willing to, having done all you can do, let God handle things? He WILL take care of us, no matter what may happen in the world around us.
