The past 8 months have brought a lot of changes to the entire world. Many have lost their jobs and businesses. The government has been blamed for the virus, and the government has brought us into deeper dept by sending out a stimulus check to each household. The debt caused by this will go much farther than most can imagine. You cannot continue to give money when there is no money to give. It has been reported that over $267 billion dollars has been disbursed. Did it stimulate the economy? Not that I can see. It gave a few dollars of hope but when it was gone then what?
As Christians we are to have total dependence upon God. He is our source of life, health, and prosperity. No one should depend upon the government for their sustenance. That is called socialism. We have become a socialist country over night by simply convincing the minority that we need the government to help us.
In what is commonly called the “Lord’s Prayer” it says give us this day our daily bread. It is a prayer that is a daily prayer. We depend upon the Lord daily for our sustenance. In the Old Testament when the Israelites were in the desert God sent manna to them daily. Once a week he sent enough for two days. Those that tried to collect extra found that the “extra” turned wormy. They were provided daily with life giving manna to sustain them. They got tired of it and God sent quail. Then they got tired of that.
It seems that for the most part people want someone else to supply everything for them, from housing to food to clothing. The work ethic these past months has been shattered. Many received unemployment that amounted to more than what they were earning on the job. Why work if the government provides? Do you see where this is all headed? It is headed to a time when the government will control what you spend, where you go, where you work, what you can wear, what you can watch and who you can worship. They have done this without firing a shot.
Can this change? I sincerely wish it could, but we have gone down the slippery slope, and it looks like there is no turning back.
We truly need a stimulus check. We need to stimulate ourselves in our walk with God. Will we receive the mark of the beast when it is required to obtain food and shelter? Will we deny God for a piece of bread? We need a stimulus check to see if we truly are in the faith. We need to stimulate ourselves to study the word of God and get back on track. The government cannot do that for you my friends. You have to do it yourselves.
