God is not surprised about our world economy. He is not in fear of gas prices and He is not concerned that His people may not make it through this. Why? Because He knows if we will stand firm on His word that we will not only make it through but we will come through stronger than before. We are not of this world – as long as we stay in Him we are safe from all harm. But that’s the key – remaining in Him. If we come out of our safe place we are on our own.

I encourage you today to do a thought check and see where your thoughts are leading you regarding increase. If they are leading you down a negative path, repent and ask God to remove all doubt and unbelief from you and to cause you to see your life from His point of view. That point of view will definitely encourage you. God is still God. He is not moved – why should we be? Our prosperity does not come from this world system; it comes from the principles of God. We give to God and He takes care of us. We tithe and He rebukes the devourer for our sake and gives us such a blessing we don’t have enough room to contain it. We give and it is given unto us, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. That is where our prosperity comes from, the Source, our God and being faithful to His word with our finances.
