“I am the God of every person on earth. You know that nothing is impossible for me.”
Jeremiah 32:27 (ERV)
There is a God that loves humanity and He would go to the ends of the universe to rescue mankind. There is no limitation of His love for you. Sometimes our believing has been hindered by bad news, resulting in feelings of hopelessness, devastation and disappointments. We then start battling thoughts in our minds that God doesn’t care about us or hear our prayers. Well, the devil is a liar! Jesus said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23).
You may be living in a “famine", a famine in your finances, in your ministry, in your business, in your marriage, in your family or in your health. The Bible gives us an example of a man named Isaac who was living in a time of devastation and famine (Genesis 26:1-6). Are you experiencing a season of “drought” in your life?
What Isaac did next was unthinkable, unimaginable and ridiculous to the human mind. What set him up for success was his faith in God. This was Isaac’s action plan: “Then Isaac sowed seed in that land…and received in the SAME year a HUNDRED TIMES as much as he had planted, AND the Lord favored him with BLESSINGS” (Genesis 26:12 AMPC). What did Isaac do? He believed God and put action immediately to what he believed God could do for him. He knew that God responds to our faith. Isaac sowing seed in a dry land brought him a supernatural harvest from God. The greater the challenges the greater the miracles! God created us to be FREE and FEARLESS no matter what we are facing in life because all things are subject to change.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
One of my disciples is a young Christian who was recently laid off when his workplace closed due to COVID-19. In the midst of his famine, and not having a paycheck to pay his bills, he began to recall the Word of God. When he heard about other families who lost their jobs and didn’t have ample funds to purchase food, he’d use what money he had in his savings and began giving food to others that he heard were in need. He would even cook meals and deliver them.
A few weeks later, God put it on his heart to start a business. He recently reported that God is blessing his business and that he had to hire additional help. He truly is an example of one that believes God at his Word and applies it to his life. Faith in God requires corresponding actions on our part (James 2:17). I should mention that he’s also a tither to the house of God and it didn’t surprise me that God opened the windows of heaven for him (Malachi 3:10). Besides, God loves a cheerful giver which He cannot do without (2 Corinthians 9:7). (Pastor Scott Tsuha)
"My God shall meet all my needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. I have given and it shall be given unto me good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. Therefore, I want to thank my God who is able to carry out His purpose in my life and do superabundantly more than all that I dare ask or think, infinitely beyond my greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams, according to His power that is at work within me."
