God promised to those who will obey Him and walk in His ways, divine providence for all their needs despite prevailing conditions in the world. In times of drought and famine, the children of God shall be satisfied. Nothing is impossible with God for those who believe in Him. Even in the desert, God provided manna to the Jews. When God, through the prophet Elijah, closed the heavens and it did not rain for two years, God sustained Elijah through a raven that brought him food every day.
Amidst all the belt tightening and the panic being exhibited by most people of the world, the children of God should relax and do their daily chores in all equanimity and peace, knowing that God will sustain them in all their needs. This is the time to increase living faith as opposed to the fears and anxieties of the men of the world. Many big companies and the economies of the most powerful nations of the world have come crashing down. God has promised that it is He who decrees who should rise and and who should fall. The wise men of the world, the economic wizards, the all powerful tycoons have all come crashing down to earth. Where is the boast of man that "he is the captain of his ship and the master of his soul?" Man is helpless when God ordains. But thanks God, the children of God are shielded from the tribulations of the world. "Seek you first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:33)
