Preppers – at least, smart preppers – aren’t preparing for a zombie apocalypse. They’re preparing for life with physical insurance. Take it from me, you don’t appreciate how much you depend on full grocery stores and available utilities until they’re not there.
If the power goes out due to a bad storm, don’t think “God will provide” you with food, water and a heated shelter. It won’t be God; it will be your neighbors or the government – neither of which holds deistic status.
I dare anyone who has lived through a natural disaster to explain to me why they’re glad they had no food, water, or heat for an extended period of time. Come on, let’s hear it.
People, get off your lazy duffs. God provides eternal salvation, but He doesn’t magically fill your empty cupboards each night or keep your house warm during a power outage. That’s up to you. Now get busy. (Why Do People Scoff At Preppers by Patrice Lewis, a weekly columnist at WND and a writer with a great blog, which can be read here.)
I feel the Bible is balanced on the subject of preparing ourselves for future calamities. On the one hand, it tells us to store up what we can and on the other hand, it tells us to trust in the Lord. So, let’s be wise and do both.
My prayer today:
Lord, help us to get off our lazy duffs and do what we can now to prepare us for future calamities in America.
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for American believers’ eyes to be opened to future calamities.
