If you live in Nigeria, then you’re probably aware that our dear nation is going through a serious economic recession. In times like these it’s easy to despair and murmur about the incessant hikes in the prices of pretty much everything. It might even seem like the normal thing to do, but the truth is there’s never been a better time to trust in God’s abundance, ability and willingness to provide than now.
This is not blind trust in some magical creature in the sky, it’s about faith in God’s providence and limitless supply even in dire economic situations.
In the book of Genesis, we see how Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph prospered in extreme famine. They could have thrown in the towel but they continued to work diligently, sowing their crops, investing in businesses, and God blessed the works of their hands, enabling them to create multiple streams of income.
So, if you’re thinking of heading down depression lane, don’t! And if you’re already there, turn around quickly! Now’s the time to get creative and diligent. God is still in the business of abundant life, and He wants to bless you – even in this recession!
