Yesterday at church, after an extended time of praise and worship, our pastor felt led to lead us into a collective prayer regarding many things. One of those things pertained to the U.S. economy and the attack on the Church.
As we were all praying, what became evident was the timing of when the economy started to take a nose dive. It started a few years ago, about the same time government officials and other leaders started to attack the Church. As they continued to mis-spend their finances, they looked for other avenues to get funds. The Church was thriving, with mega churches growing by leaps and bounds and even smaller churches doing financially well because they followed the Bibilical Economics available to us by our God in the Bible.
As the verbal attacks came critizing the Church regarding their finances, the economy started to go down. You see, you will never have what you attack.
The lessons regarding the power of the words we say have been so abused that we really don't believe everything someone tells us or think it's too "New Agey" to speak to situations. We also might be so used to white lies, playing the PC game, or exaggerations, that we just skim over things like:
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21 KJV
The U.S. has been speaking against the finances of the Church simply because they want their cut. But there is a reason for the seperation from Church and State. It isn't to protect the State, but the Church!
Last night, as these revelations came through the pastor, we began to undo the attacks of the leaders in this country, specifically where finances, oil prices, and food prices were concerned. We stood together and rejected the voices of this world telling us "how it is and how it's going to be." As the Church, we are to be the salt and the light of this world. We are to demonstrate the supernatural love and power of our God. We came together, took our place in Christ, and loosed God's Word to the Church in the U.S.
There is no better time than NOW to get into the Word of God and ask Him for His divine guidance on His plan for your economic freedom. How wonderful would it be that as you follow the principles He's laid out in the Word, the promises begin to manifest simply because you believed and did what He said? Then those that are struggling themselves could look to the Light they see in you and ask, "Why are you doing so well?" You can than boost on your God and say, "Let me introduce you to my Financial Advisor, Jesus...".
Things will be turning around, and turning around soon. So why not be part of the reason and stand on the side of God's Word? Find out what God's says about your situation and allow that to be FiNAL authority over it, no matter what it looks like.
God's Word shall not return to Him Void. The only thing that can stop it is you. You are the deciding factor on Earth for the world you live in. The faith you need for the promise to be fulfilled is in the promise itself:
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
Will you be a witness to His goodness or mercy? Will you dare to be the salt and the light in your world?
