There are a lot of people in the United States who are extremely nervous right now. The economy is tanking, unemployment figures keep climbing, and a Democrat run Congress as well as President Obama are swinging hard left into a socialistic agenda in order to (supposedly) fix the nation's economy. From my tone you can probably deduce that I'm not in favor of this approach, but that is not the point of this post.
As a nation, we have entered into a time of drought. All of the financial numbers point to the fact that we have entered into a major recession that will take some time from which to recover. Many Christians and non-Christians alike are worked up about the fiscal policies that are coming out of Washington right now, and I don't blame them. I support the right of every US citizen to protest against bad financial policy.
As Christians, though, we need to be very cautious of one thing: in times of drought, be sure your trust is in Almighty God and not man. If we are to be blessed as a nation financially, we need to move back to our Judeo-Christian roots not only in terms of money, but also in morals and ethics.
Man's way only leads to more drought and lack of prosperity.
God's way leads to a confident prosperity. Trust in the Lord and place your confidence in Him.
