“Riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations.” Pr 27:24 NIV

One mega-insurance company advertises itself as “the Rock,” claiming to be the foundation of your financial security. Remember when we trusted such slogans? Not anymore; it’s not the same world. Financial uncertainty characterizes today’s world of failing banks, crumbling investment giants, shrinking multinational corporations, swelling lines of the under-employed and unemployed, plus an epidemic of fear plaguing the hearts of the presently-employed. For the young, the joy of graduation has become the stress of college debts and a shrinking job market. Many older folks are trading in their retirement dreams for a new twenty-first century reality: “work till you drop.” In such times, where can we turn? To politicians? To government? To the next get-rich-quick guru? The Bible says, “Riches do not endure forever, and a crown (human government) is not secure for all generations.” What’s the answer? Turn to the only reliable source of security: God! There’s no financial crisis in His kingdom! Israel hungered and thirsted and He sent them fresh manna and water from the rock. He assigned ravens to feed Elijah, multiplied oil and flour to sustain a destitute widow’s family, fed thousands from a boy’s lunch of five loaves and two fish. And He asks us: “Is anything too difficult for Me?” (Jer 32:27 NAS). No! So: (1) trust God to provide for you; (2) do what He tells you to do; (3) believe that God “will.” “The lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. You will have plenty…to feed you and your family” (Pr 27:26-27 NIV).
