“ If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth and if the tree fall toward the south or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be (Ecl 11:1-6)
Going by Joseph’s experience, a famine can be God’s avenue to fulfill pending prophecies and uplift an individual. May your negative situation birth your promotion in Jesus’ name.
Another salient lesson from the life of Isaac during the famine is that opportunities to overcome such drought can come during that famine period itself. This is another way of saying that most problems come with inbuilt solutions. For instance, after God told Isaac to remain in Gerar, he was led to do something:
“Then Isaac sowed in that land and received in the same year an hundred fold. And the Lord blessed him (Gen26:12)
“In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand; for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be like good” (Eccl 11:6) For effective and continuous harvesting, sow both in the morning and evening. Sow when you have in abundance and sow in your lack. Sow when you are happy and when you are sad. Ask God to guide you on what to sow. Go ahead and sow. A famine season is a good time to sow. (O.H.)
PRAYER LINE: My Father and my God, thank You for the knowledge about sowing and harvesting in all seasons.
In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not Thine hand… (Eccl. 11:6)
