In These Times of Financial Struggles it’s Important to Know What to Set Your Eyes On

God Bless you Pastor Jude for your message to us today! Love you Bro!

In these times of financial struggles it’s important to know what u set your eyes on.. In Psalm 20:7 the bible says,” Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God”…. My thoughts… We can become a people that will always go to the Lord last in times of troubles..and sometimes find ourselves saying,” I go to God because that’s all I got”… When we should go to God with the attitude of ” I go to God because that’s all I need”. Bottom line.. If we lose our jobs, if the stock market crashes, if we have struggles of any kind the bible makes it clear .. LOOK UP!!! Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 6:17,” Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain.” This is what I’m learning in this day and age… If u stare at your income, your investments, your job, it gets dizzy and nauseating and will strain muscles, and will kink our necks.. The bible has a name for that condition.. It’s called stiff- neck.. As reflected in Jeremiah 17:23,” ” yet they did not listen or pay attention, they were stiff- necked and would not listen or respond to discipline.” That’s what we do( Or is it only me?) at times .. We refuse to pivot skyward and look at God.. Life sometimes can cause us to pull a faith muscle.. We get stuck looking straight ahead, or down, at our own paths our own ways.. But when you look to God it becomes a different story, because then you place your hope in the ONE who owns all the riches, who knows your future, and establishes Kingdoms!!! Oh come on somebody!! So next time you find yourself gazing at your things… Just take a look at the back of your dollar bill.. And read the only words that really matter.. “In God we trust.” But it’s not always the case for us right? For a lot of us it’s ” In Money we Trust” or ” In Man we trust” or In Jobs We Trust” or In Myself I Trust”.. That’s when the bible realigns our necks.. And let’s us know what’s really going on..stop looking left and right, forward and back, that’s the workout of a paranoid, fearful person. Just look up and trust God( My wife tells me this all the time).. Especially with your finances.. Or am I the only one learning something today? That is all
