Let your conversation be without covetousness…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me (Hebrews 13:5-6).
The economic situation in the world today may have left many hopeless and terrified, but as a Christian, you must think differently, because you’re not of this world. You’re from another plane, a higher realm, where you live above the elements and rudiments of this world. Colossians 2:20 lets us know that you’re dead with Christ to the rudiments of the world. The world’s economic systems can’t work against you.
Understand that everything in this world is an instrument for your use. They shouldn’t rule over you; the economy shouldn’t dominate you, or dictate the circumstances of your existence. You’re greater than inflation and the economy. You’re bigger than this world! 1 John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” The world is yours and everything in it; therefore, think and function differently. Live from the mountain-top.
Job 22:29 says, “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up…” And in Jeremiah 17:7-8, the Spirit says, “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” This is the reality about you, because you’re the seed of Abraham. Your success, progress, and prosperity are guaranteed, even in austere times. Hallelujah!
Economic problems aren’t new; they happened in Bible days. However, God always led His people through them victoriously. Let your mind soar beyond the country where you live. Have the mentality of a victor. Choose to see things from God’s eternal perspective, and continuously live with the consciousness that you’re from above.
You can never be disadvantaged, because you’re not of this world. You’re God’s heir; and He’s programmed everything in life to work in your favour: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
The Lord God has bestowed on me favour and honour! I live a higher life, a life that’s beyond this world. I’m the blessed of the Lord! I’m prosperous and sound, and I lack nothing, for all things are mine! Glory to God!
