“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD; and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the LORD upholds him with His hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor His seed begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lends; and His seed is blessed.”
The media tells us that we are in a recession, a continuous downward spiral depleting all of our financial resources. Nevertheless, included in this book on the first and last day of the year, is the blessing found in Deuteronomy 28:1-13. It was listed to remind every reader of God's blessings and promise to those who keep His statues and walk in His righteousness. I printed it out for my personal circle of friends and asked them to place it where they could see it on a daily basis; you should do the same. It will be a reminder when everything around you is spiraling downward to keep your eyes on the Master and not a downward economy.
As in all times, some will prosper and some will not. Remember, the Bible says, “I have been young, and now am old; yet, I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor His seed begging bread.” L.
