2 Chronicles 20:15

Gas prices are steadily going up, gas and electric has climbed to a high of 75%. Senior citizens are having to decide whether to buy the medications that they need to stay alive or keep their lights and heat on. How in the world can an honest working man or woman survive these insurmountable odds? I was taught that Jesus will take care of me and supply all of my needs. Why am I going through such difficulties? I come to church every Sunday, I come to bible study and Sunday school, and I pay my tithes and offerings and I’m still struggling. That is the statement many of us make. Right?
One thing about God, when our memories begin to fail us about His goodness, he has a way of bring back those memories of how we got over when it seemed impossible. When we look back at those times, we begin to lean on our faith. We have to remember who the battle really belongs to.
