NAVIGATING THROUGH A SEASON OF FAMINE (III)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 17:1-16


MEMORY VERSE:

Isaiah 1:19 "If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:"


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

So far, we have considered two important factors that can help you to navigate through a famine season in life: making and following godly decisions and exercising faith in God and His unfailing promises. Today, we will look at other factors: obedience and favour.


The Bible says that obedience is better than sacrifice and hearkening than the fat of rams (1 Samuel 15:22). God rewards obedience. He expects your obedience to be prompt, unquestioning and complete. When you obey God, you prove that you believe that He is sovereign, all-knowing, all-powerful and all-sufficient. It also means that you trust Him. In Isaiah 1:19, the Bible says, "If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land." Isaac demonstrated willingness and obedience during the famine. He heeded the heavenly instruction to stay in Gerar and not go down to Egypt. He believed God's promise to bless him in the land in spite of the famine. Beloved, God owns the heaven and the earth as well as all the gold and silver in them. He can bless you regardless of famine, global economic downturn or recession and other unpleasant economic situations.


Finally, you need favour and help to navigate a season of famine. One day of favour is greater than one year of labour. Favour will make you an exception to the rule in a positive way. By reason of divine favour and help, the widow of Zarephath encountered Elijah and did not suffer the pains of famine as others did. She, her son and Prophet Elijah did not lack. Ask God for favour and help during a season of famine. Favour was the game-changer in the difficult times that Ruth passed through. Her story turned to glory when she found favour with God and man.


In Ruth 2:2-3, the Bible says that Ruth went to work as a reaper in the field of Boaz, a kindred of Elimelech. When Boaz got to the field, Ruth, through a stranger in the land, found great favour with him and that completely changed her story! I pray that you will find favour and help today and always, in Jesus' name.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

God does not follow protocols when He wants to bless you.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

TODAY, YOU WILL EXPERIENCE LIFE-CHANGING FAVOUR THAT WILL REPLACE YOUR YEARS OF LABOUR, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.


PRAYER POINTS:


MORNING

1. Father, make me willing and obedient towards Your word, in the name of Jesus.

2. O God, arise and connect me to the socket of Your favour, in the name of Jesus.

3. Divine favour and help to make me thrive in the midst of famine, locate me now, in the name of Jesus.


EVENING

4. The power that connected Ruth to Boaz, connect me to my divine helper now, in the name of Jesus.

5. O God that owns the heavens and the earth, bless me beyond human comprehension, in the name of Jesus.

6. O heaven over my life and destiny, open by fire, in the name of Jesus.

7. My Father, by Your mercy, as You changed the story of Ruth, change my story gloriously, in the name of Jesus.


Bible In One Year: Genesis 19-21
