WE are not in a Recession

Funny thing, this morning as I was preparing to go to work, I thought about the current recession (that's not the funny part). As I pondered the state of our country, I thought about the fact that God is not in a recession (that's not the funny part either : ).

God is not in heaven right now, distraught trying to figure how He'll be able to bless ALL His children this month. He's not worrying about how He'll be able to keep heaven with the housing market looking like it does. He's not thinking of where He'll find the time to answer everyone's prayers once He gets a second job.

God has everything. His resources are infinite, His time is infinite. He's not at all concerned about the economy. He probably hasn't even thought twice about, except for the fact that His children are living in worry and concern about their futures.


Why are we so concerned about what's going on in the world.

  1. We're just here for a short while anyway. A lifetime is nothing compared to an eternity.
  2. God told us not to take thought for the morrow, but to let it take care of itself [I'll post the verse when I find it].
  3. He also said He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus [Same here].

Don't worry. Just trust.

So the funny part of all this is that this morning when I was thinking it over, I was thinking "Christians shouldn't say we're in a recession." because we're not. The world is in a recession, but this is not our home. When people say we're in a recession, we should say "Y'all (yes, I'm from the South : ) are in a recession. I'm not. God doesn't operate according to man's terms. God has infinite resources, and so do I. He'll supply all my needs regardless of what's going on in the world."

Maybe this is one of those "easier said than done" situations, but I just found it funny to tell someone " 'WE'RE' in a recession?? No. Y'all are in a recession" and watch them give you the ultimate crazy look. Lol.

Anywho, that's it for now. Thought it was humorous, and wanted to share.

God bless you!!

Wow, those are really great thoughts! It's great to be encouraged by the thought that GOD is there and He's not sleeping, He is very active in current events and is in control of EVERYTHING that is going on :) Thanks so much for the post!
