NAVIGATING THROUGH A SEASON OF FAMINE (II)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 26:1-12


MEMORY VERSE:

Proverbs 3:5"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding."


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


THE MESSAGE:

We began to examine how you can successfully navigate through a season of famine yesterday. We concluded that first, you must make right decisions and ensure that such helpful decisions are God-directed. Do you hear God? If you do not, you need to move your spiritual life to that level so that the enemy does not keep short-changing you.


Today, we are going to look at another step you can take to navigate through a season of famine. Beloved, you need unwavering faith. You need the faith that believes the incredible, sees the invisible and achieve the impossible. You also need the faith that staggers not at the promises of God but is fully persuaded that the One who has promised will do it (Romans 4:21). You need faith to rise above the storms of life.


The story of Isaac during the famine recorded in Genesis 26 readily comes to mind. Isaac, reacting on impulse and self-will decided to go down to Egypt in order to escape the excruciating pain of famine ravaging the land. However, God told him to remain in Gerar and that He would bless him there. Isaac believed God. His faith accounted for the ear-tingling testimonies that followed. His faith in God propelled him to farm in the same land during the famine. Some of the Philistines would have mocked him, but he knew who he believed. It is worth to note that Isaac did not reap the day he sowed. His rock-like and living faith in God made him keep working and trusting God. In the end, he got a hundred-fold harvest and became so prosperous that the Philistines envied him.


Beloved, if you experience a famine, go to God for direction. Spend quality time alone with Him and get His will on what you should do. No matter how illogical, difficult or impracticable the guidance from God may be, believe Him. He is ever faithful. I pray that your faith will grow stronger and will neither fail nor falter. Also, believe His promise that you will not be ashamed in the evil time and even in the time of famine, you will be satisfied (Psalm 37:19). When you have faith that God will perform whatever He has promised, you will prosper so much and become the envy of other people.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Faith is the light that guides you through the darkness.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

YOUR FAITH WILL BE INCREASED AND STRENGTHENED DAY BY DAY BY THE LORD, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
