Limited assets? No, just unclaimed assets.

The economics of the days we live in are insane.  The numbers that governments deal in are beyond comprehending.  Trillions of dollars... trillions!  Greece, Spain, Ireland... all are teetering on the brink of financial colapse.  Even the good ol' USA has been affected, our rating has been lowered by the companies that rate nation's financial stability.
I read an article recently that said the amount of debt owed on our planet exceeds the worth of every asset of our planet all added together. 
In other words, planet earth is bankrupt.
Things are rapidly changing from the world we have known into a world we may not recognize.
There is a limit to how much any government on this earth can do.  There is a limit of resources on this planet.


Thank God, the church does not depend on any government to keep it going.  Regardless of denomination, the "true" church of Jesus Christ will survive.  It will grow no matter what comes in world governments, in world finances, in world politics... the church will survive.  No matter what form of government sits in power on earth, the Leader of the church has no limit of resources... there is no limit on His assets.  A trillion dollars to Him is nothing.  What matters to Him is people.  Souls.

Isaiah 9:6-7 
For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

"Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end..."  The church in China thrives, the church in Viet Nam is growing and alive!  The church in the United States will go on no matter what happens in our government, no matter what happens in our banks.
For the people who are the true believers of Jesus Christ there are always enough assets...
There is always enough
...grace for people to be saved.  (Romans 5:20)
...love to cover a multitude of sin, to cast out all fear... (1 Peter 4:8 &1 John 4:18)
...joy unspeakable that is filled with His glory... (1 Peter 1:8)
...peace that passes all understanding... (Phil. 4:7)
...kindness to help people forgive one another... (Ephesians 4:32)
...goodness so we can leave some behind us where ever we go... (Ps. 23:6)
...mercy to help people to give joyfully and passionately... (Romans 12:8)
...gentleness to soothe the soul of the oppressed... ( Eph 4:2)
...faithfulness to do what is right whether someone is looking or not... (Hebrews 11)
...self control for us to posess our own souls & lack nothing... (Luke 21:19 & James 1:4)

These are all Gifts of God, of course there is no shortage of any of these... God has an boundless supply.
We, however, can run short of them.  When we are running short on these things personally, it is only because we have not prayed, we have not read the Word.  I know that is the reason I run out of those things.  Maybe it is just me... but, I have found through prayer and reading of the Word, Jesus comunes with me and I comune with Him.

Praying today for:
The nation of Haiti
The state of Virginia

Remember, Nana loves you!
