Revelation 6:5-6

Revelation 6_5-6.png

When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”  - Revelation 6:5-6

Dear Jesus,

Here in your word you promise that there will be run away inflation at different places on the earth throughout the ages and until the end of time. Some places on earth right now even food prices are rising astronomically.   I know that in my country we haven't experienced inflation near as much as others.  And yet when prices spike we chaff under the load.  It makes us feel hopeless and worried.  You use inflation to frustrate our lust for temporal wealth and to make us learn to depend on you for everything.  How powerfully you bring us back home in concrete ways.  Lord, take care of our needs and preserve us through our hard times.  Give us what we need to get through it all and make us generous toward those who are experiencing your chastening through inflation so they will find your love coming from our hands.
