Prosperity

"Adversity is sometimes hard upon a man, but for one man who can stand prosperity, there are a hundred that will stand adversity".  Thomas Carlyle

When confidence and expectations are high, we set ourselves up for disappointment, bitterness and eventual anger.  God desires our utmost trust in Him, regardless of our prosperity.  This is not to say we don't have hope for a better life, or for worldly achievements and rewards, but our hope must centered in Christ and His ultimate plan and purpose for our lives.  We must guard against feelings or attitudes of entitlement.  What we have or don't have, what we acheive or don't achieve, is a product of  a divine will and plan.  Nothing escapes the Lord.. 

To recognize His hand in our success (or failure), is to recognize the relationship, and to recognize the relationship is to appreciate the peace that passes all understanding.

Very true. There are mioble phone jammers available, and the new meters operate in the 900 Mhz UHF band, but so do some public agencies radio services like MERA, that are public works, police and fire all trunked together on an emergency radio system.This meter project is a product sold by very powerful corporations and the FCC is owned by those corporations.If anyone got caught by the FCC for jamming a special corporate project or a public radio system, the FCC will come down on you like a ton of bricks and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. I don t know the penalties, but I sure wouldn t want to find out. DON T JAM ANY RADIO SYSTEMS, that only adds to the problem.
