A few days ago millions sat in front of their televisions to watch President Obama deliver the state of the union address. As he delivered his speech, you could clearly see the divide between the two parties. The democrats were giving him standing ovations on almost 90% of everything he said, while the republicans clearly displayed their disatisfaction by remaining seated and silent.
I sat there and watched how the nation hung on his every word and were looking to him for a change in the economic, education and health sectors (amongst others). What are his plans? When will he put them into action? How will he implement them? Those were some of the questions on everyone’s mind. It amazed me how millions of people were looking to one man for hope and change. It caused me to think, God has delivered His state of the union address many moons ago. As a matter of fact His state of the union address has been printed and been a bestseller since the beginning of time.
In His state of the union address, He not only tells us where we are, how low we’ve fallen and how past actions played a role in our current status, He also gives us a clear cut reform plan.
His economic stimulus plan – 10% = Floodgates!
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
His education plan – JUST ASK!
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach and it will be given to him. James 1:5 (NASB)
His health reform – Believe and Be healed!
Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.”
Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health unto you and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord.”
God has delivered a state of the union address we can rely on. His past actions were mind blowing. His current actions are simply amazing and His future actions are world changing.Our union with God is the change we can and need to believe in. We ought to be hanging on every word that comes from the Word of God. We ought to place our hope in the One who is infallible.
God is the only person who can bring change that is permanent. Whatever it is you may be looking for in life, seek God and if it be in accordance with His perfect will, it will come to pass. Put your trust in God for He will never and can never fail you. All He ask in order for you to partake in the blessings, is that you unite with Him. Once you have taken this simple step, His plans will now drastically change the state of YOUR union.
I don’t know whether you’ve lost a job, fallen into debt, been diagnosed with cancer or been dismissed from school for financial issues, one thing I do know is that God has a plan for you and He waiting on you to allow Him to put it into action. All He ask is that you seek Him.
Today, take a minute to analyze the state of YOUR union. On what or whom have you layed your hope?
Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. And all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
Lord, thank you for being the change I can believe in. Please help me to rely on your infallible Word and to place my trust in Your master plan. Thank you in advance for my breakthroughs and…..
