Believe God in 2009; He is able.

The Word of the Lord this month to us is; God can still take care of us in troubled times. First, lets read from Proverbs 3: 5-7
" Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord and depart from evil."

God says in Jeremiah 29:11, that He has plans to give each of us a future and a hope.

No matter what happens around us we have the blessing of God on us and in us.Even when circumstances around us are completely changing, Gods Word does not change. Gods desire and ability to work in your life is unhindered by this worlds circumstances.

1- Noah was riding high and dry even though the world went into liquidation.
2- Abraham ended up with great blessings in a land he walked on by faith.Genesis 24:1
3- Isaac sowed in the time of famine and was blessed while the world around him experienced lack. Genesis 26:1-14
4- Jacob enjoyed the blessings of God when his father-in-law tried to cheat him many times.
5- Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers but God put him in charge of all the food supplies in Egypt, and made him second only to Pharaoh.
6- Moses was a shepherd when God told him to bring Israel out of bondage and literally take the abundance of Egypt to the promised land.

I could go on and on but here is what we need to grasp; No matter how things look, we serve a God who has the power and wisdom to bless us and give us victory and peace, if we will trust Him.

BELIEVE GOD. Do not allow your eyes and ears to be filled with fear concerning 2009. We have a God who is able to keep us and even to promote us during hard times. Don't let your hearts be troubled. We, as the body of Jesus, have faith, hope, and love to share with a world that is suffering and hurting. Be strong and expect great things to happen.
