Everywhere you look, there are desperate people. You can see it in their faces and hear it in their voices. Desperate to earn a living, to send their kids to school, to pay the rent or the doctor bills. No jobs in America. You know it is bad when illegals decide to go home.
I hear tales of robbery in broad daylight in communities around the nation. This will get increasingly worse as time goes on. People have tried most everything to earn a paycheck. I know of people who are endorsing products they would never buy for their own families because they know the products are worthless.
I don’t think Americans have any real clue as to what hard times really are. Children today can’t imagine life without all the luxuries they enjoy. They think they have a right to these things. If we look at all things God told us not to do and compare this with what America not only allows, but endorses and encourages, it is no mystery why things are falling apart at the seams.
Sinkholes are appearing everywhere. Do you think fracking has anything to do with these giant holes? Man can only do so much to the earth before there are grave consequences. I don’t believe man has affected the weather to the degree that some are trying to sell us on, but we haven’t done the earth much good, either.
If you look for them on Facebook, twitter, blogs and in the marketplace, you can find desperate people. They try to be discreet, but you can see the beginning of panic in the requests they make or the things they post. It breaks your heart to see it.
No one knows how much pain we must endure in the coming years, but one thing holds steady. God said not to fear. If we believe and faint not, he will bring us safely to the other side. The key is to know that you know, that you know God has the answer to all of your problems. There is no room for doubt.
Imagine how God feels when you wring your hands in fear and doubt about how to pay the bills when he has told you he would provide for all your needs? You might as well say to God, “I know you have the power God, but I still don’t believe you will do what you say you will do.” It isn’t about deserving something. You feed your children whether they have obeyed you or not. You provide them with warmth, comfort, love and security. God wants to do this for all of us. There is only one requirement, we have to believe. We have to go to the bank to deposit the check that we don’t have in our hands yet, but knowing God will provide it.
Some desperate people you just can’t help. They refuse to believe. For those who do, remind them of the love of God. Take that look of desperation off the faces of those you care about. Let them know there is a way to survive the chaos.
