We live in a time when we are hearing much about the last days that surround us and there is no doubt we are living in extremely changing times. But let me remind you that God is not changed by the times or the people we have to deal with. God remains in charge regardless of what’s happening or going to happen in the world. Throughout His Word, God reminds those that follow Him that He will make a way whenever and however He needs to. We are reminded of God’s faithfulness in the story of Joseph as God rose up a slave to become a prince among his oppressor. Genesis 45:6-11 tells us this story.
Why did God do this? Because, God had a plan then and still has a plan today for those that will look to Him in time of trouble, of famine or whatever the need may be: God always has resources to cover that need. I know there are people who tell us that we need to have some items stored up or we need to have money, gold or silver. Maybe we do, but let me remind you that you had better look to God first before you begin depending on yourself or others for help or security. Proverbs 18:10, 11 says, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and like a high wall, his own esteem.”
There is nothing wrong with using common sense, but when you put your own reasoning ahead of God’s ability to see you through that is not faith. Our faith cannot save us. Only God’s power through our faith in Christ can do that. God will not let His true followers perish if we are serving His purposes.
