Economic Storm

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- September 24, 2011

“When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever.” Proverbs 10:25

Economic storms expose evil. Like when the ocean tide goes out, you are able to see those in the water who are naked. Dead wood is swept away; no more to be seen. It may seem like the wicked are prospering, but eventually they will be found out. The Holy Spirit shakes out sin, so it can be seen and judged. As the Lord promised His children in the past, “I will shake the house of Israel” (Amos 9:9).

What used to make a lot of noise and draw the attention of the elite, has lost its creditability under scrutiny. Economic storms collapse businesses and ministries who are dependent on debt, but conversely they cause good churches to increase in attendance. There is a purging of pride, and all manner of excess is exposed. What really matters in life? Faith, family, friends, food and shelter become our priority. Storms reveal our values.

Moreover, those who cling to Christ are not shaken. He is our cornerstone that no degree of chaos can challenge. The Bible says, “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever” (Psalm 125:1). The righteous cannot be moved, because their Master is immovable. Therefore, stand firm in the Lord.

Furthermore, your stability in your Savior is security for your family, friends and work associates. Your unwavering faith during difficult days helps them replace panic with peace, fear with faith, and compromise with conviction. Indeed, if all you have left is a firm foundation of faith, begin building back God’s big vision. Are you a wise builder?

Jesus says, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24).

How can I build my life, home and work on the solid rock of Jesus?

I thought that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape companies and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anybody could suggest a trustworthy web site where I can buy Vape Shop Business Email Addresses I am presently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the very best selection and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
