The Source of Prosperity

“You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance. Your people settled in it, and from your bounty, O God, you provided for the poor.”Psalm 68:9-10

Right now, it is the time of presidential election campaign bombardment for the American family. Television ads abound, the phone rings constantly with polls or surveys, and candidates make multiple speeches each and every day. And in these speeches, we are promised that government will look after us, or that politicians can somehow make the changes necessary to help our poor. Newspeople even ask the candidates what they will do to help people who are struggling.

Not one of the politicians will give the following answer to that question – “I will pray for God's deliverance on our nation and for the comfort of those who are truly hurting, because He is the source of all help.” But today's verses from the Psalms tell us that this is exactly what God will do. He can providentially give our nation what we need, He can grant abundance, and He can can help the poor. Good things, and true prosperity, come from the Lord. I wish our leaders would live out this belief in their oversight of our country.
