Your source is God’s riches in glory in Christ Jesus. You are his little one and he knows that you need all these things.
Just like the ebb and flow of many phenomena in nature, so the economics of humanity ebbs and flows with regularity. We’re all happy when the world markets flow but panic when there is a global economic ebb.
As followers of Jesus Christ, we don’t place our confidence in man’s monetary management. Jesus was a great economist. He addressed the issues of everyday needs by saying things like, “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on,” adding “your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.” By the Holy Spirit Apostle Paul wrote, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
Indeed, stock markets are teetering, pension schemes are wobbling and currency markets are fluctuating but our confidence is not in such things. Our confidence is in the Creator. At a time of economic upheaval, don’t give up, look up and set your mind on things above not on earthly things. Lift up your eyes. Your help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.Matthew 6:33
I encourage you this week, during the global economic crisis, to trust God to continually meet your needs. The world markets are not your source. Your source is God’s glorious riches in Christ Jesus. You are his little one and your Father knows that you need all these things. His promise to you today is, all these things you need for life and living shall be added to you if you first focus on his righteousness and his kingdom principles; his purposes for your life.
God-tracking is having confidence in the economics of Glory.

Don’t Give up, Look Up & Pray
“I place my confidence in you, O Lord, to meet all my needs according to your riches in glory, by Christ Jesus.”
“O Lord, I panic when I watch the news and see how the world is swaying on the edge of global recession. I admit that I have filled my mind with too much doom and gloom. I’m sorry. I lift up my eyes above the newspapers and TV screen to fix them on Jesus who meets my needs. I seek first your kingdom purposes for my life. I have a bank account in the bank of Glory! So, I place my confidence in you, O Lord, to meet all my needs according to your riches in glory, by Christ Jesus. Amen.”
