The fear of economic instability in the future and the fear of entering and staying within the high numbers of unemployment send shockwaves to many who are jobless and many who use this dilemma to push a political agenda. The word of God tells the believer to fear not for God is with you, but he also tells us to consider when calamity hits. This is a great opportunity to reflect on the direction that we have been taking. Are we walking closer with him or being seduced by fear like those around? Fear not God is with you. Jonah did not fear while the boat he was on was being tossed and he was in disobedience, why? He knew God. This is not a declaration or celebration to live in sin proudly, but a revelation that when you know God, you know he is merciful and kind not willing that any should perish.
You can make it anywhere when you know God through his Son Jesus Christ. The question remains how do I know God well enough that fear because a secondary response to bad news? We spend time doing the very thing he told us to do, which is pray. We invite God into our life and believe his word that says I will never leave you nor forsake you. You can make it anywhere because God is everywhere and there is no location on planet earth where he cannot be found.
