A Message for the World's Economies

You do not need me to tell you about the world economies or that many people seek someone on whom to place the blame, yet, let the people of every nation hear what the Lord told Israel about the economic hard times they experienced in the wilderness, “So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD” (Deuteronomy 8:3).
Could it be that the Lord is humbling all the nations right now, allowing us to suffer that we might know that we do not live by bread alone, but by everything that the Lord says in His Scriptures?
I believe that is very real possibility. Let us then not focus on blaming someone for the downturn of the world’s economies, but let us focus on ourselves, looking to see where we place our faith! Do we place our faith in our wealth or the wealth of our nation, or do we place our faith in the Lord? Where is your faith?
