Economic problems are not solved by angels descending from the sky in a ladder of light. Whatever happens in the world (good or bad) is driven by human beings. God doesn’t change nations, people do. God works to change the world through people. There are people content to pray about issues and demand that God uses someone to take the problems away. And there is another class of people that prays for God to use them to tackle those problems. God can work upon your heart, transforming your mindset in the process. Your new mindset will drive you to produce the results we have always wanted. The big question then becomes whether you are ready for your journey of transformation?
Economic miracles take decades to come together, and they are driven by people. It is not an instant miracle like a lame man walking again. A critical mass of the people must change and embrace the mindset required to produce an abundance. The Book of Proverbs says, “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life” (Proverbs 4:23 ESV). The state of the heart of the people will determine the course of their world. Enough people must be willing to embrace the change of heart required for real wealth creation.
Strong economies are not about the abundance of natural resources as many people, especially in African countries like to think. Strong economies like the USA or China are not considered prosperous due to an abundance of natural resources. They are strong because of the people within their borders. They are not rich because they have money. The source of their wealth is the knowledge and wisdom they apply to build a better world for everyone. This requires a change of heart. Selfish people cannot build a better world. An economic turnaround begins with a spiritual renaissance. Spirituality makes people selfless.
