Shaken To The Core

The Wall Street Journal reports to day that the US financial system has been "shaken to its core."

Which makes me wonder . . . where and in what do people place their trust, their faith? I guess many believe that everything will just go on as normal . . . forever, at least until they die.

This world offers NO guarentees. Only ONE is eternal, the Alpha and Omega, the one, true God. He is faithful and true. Read His Word, the Bible. Oftentimes His people, the ancient Israelites, sought to place their trust in armies and riches and in their own wisdom -- guess where that got them?

Whenever we ignore God, refusing to acknowlwedge Him and trust him and look to Him for salvation -- we fail. As individuals and as nations, I am afraid.

I think we are reaping what we have sown. God does not play games. May we trun from our wicked ways, acknowledge Him and serve Him, may we come humbly before Him, may we seek Him and may He hear our prayers, forgive our sin and heal us. (2 Chron. 7:14)
