The senseless greed that has been driving me to buy more or less whatever I want has been driving me to ‘SAY’ more or less whatever I want! If it ‘pops into my mind’ then I’ll say it. (Often with dire consequences!)
The Bible says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. So the question I have to ask myself is ‘What is in my heart?’
Well, I guess the truth is there is a mixture of good stuff and bad stuff! There is a good deposit of God’s Word; and there is a deposit of the bad stuff of the world and the flesh – which is all fear-based!
Each moment of my waking day I have a choice to speak either good or bad – ‘life or death,’- as the Bible puts it.
So, now I see clearly the effects of drawing from a bankrupt financial economy, I am jolted into considering the effects of overdrawing from my bankrupt economy of the Word of God. Do I have enough of the life of God in me to weather these turbulent times?
I have come to the decision that NOW is the time to invest in the inflation busting, powerful and life-giving Word of God – not only to ‘weather the storms’ of life’s ups and downs but to prosper ‘in any situation and any economy. God’s Word is the only economy that will never go bust!
