God's Help during the recession...

We have always heard that old church saying that says He can make a WAY out of NO WAY. Well that is what the people of God need today. We are facing the Red Sea with the army of Egypt hot on our trails. We have to walk in the authority given to us by Christ Jesus to come against this attack from the enemy.
Everywhere you look from the news and other media outlets SITUATIONS and CIRCUMSTANCES are so dire for people in the world today. People are scared, people are hurting, people are homeless, people are hungry and it literally breaks my heart to see this world in such economic distress. But I want to tell you the GOOD NEWS that in Christ we truly are over-comers.

It is my mission not to hype or emotionalize the message of Jesus Christ but to tell people to stand on the word of God concerning their life and their finances. I know things are extremely hard for so many right now and MY struggle may not be your struggle and your struggle may not be mine but still for all of us there is hope.
There is HOPE that is past the security of a job or the excitement of a new president. There is the hope of knowing and believing in the power of God to change our circumstances for the better.

Let us feed our faith with the word of God about this recession (famine)...
Genesis 26:12 ..tells us that God BLESSED Isaac in the famine with a hundredfold harvest of more than he planted.
2 Chronicles 20:9 tells us that when we stand in the presence of the LORD even in times including a famine and cry out to the LORD He will hear us and rescue and save us.
Psalm 37:19 They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough.
Romans 8: 35-37 Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the scriptures say, "For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep." No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
The truth is that we must continue to fight the GOOD fight of faith and believe the word of the Lord. More than ever we must feed our faith with His word and believe in His love and goodness for us to take care of our every need. Let us pray for this nation and for the needs of all of those in the world that are feeling the pains of this recession. Repent for the sins and indiscretions of our nation and ask God to restore and reconcile us all back to HIM through His Son Jesus Christ.

Be Blessed, Manie
