_The Famine of The Word_
Amos 8:11-13 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find [it]. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
What happens when God sends a famine not of physical food but rather of spiritual food?
It serves both as a warning and a lesson to us and the entire body of Christ that spiritual famines can occur and God himself sends them. This is because his people have either gone astray by not listening or holding His word with high regard anymore .
When something is available, usually because it of it's availability, its usually abused. But once it stops being available like it used to, then we are opened to how valuable it was when it was there.
Availability doesn't mean abuse or waste it but it's wisdom to store it up such that when a time of famine comes, you still have something available to take you in that time.
The same way you used to thirst for God and his word should be the same way (or more ). You should run and pant after it all the time regardless of the seasons.
What really sustains us or what really gives us life ,is not the food that we eat or the water that we drink or the money we have or the marriages we are in, the houses we live in, the clothes we wear etc. I am not saying do not do or have these things but what I am saying is that those are not the real substance of life.
Our sustainability is in The word of God and its an eternal assurance.
Father Lord helps us hold unto every word that proceeds out of your mouth with high regard and utmost honor because its what sustain this life I live.
