Breaktime: No Scarcity Here
In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty. Psalm 37:19
In times of disaster we will not wither which means we will not lose hope. We will not fall when all is tumbling around us as we are still standing. Disaster will come, but deliverance will also come. We aren’t immune from the calamities, but we are free from them overtaking us because of God’s covering. Nothing can take our heart without our consent.
There will be times of great need, but we won’t be overcome by the famine. We have come to realize in times of great need, God doesn’t run out of resources. God’s resources are unlimited but in times of great need we may approach our situation with a scarcity mentality. These thoughts can catch us off guard and convince us that we don’t have enough, which forces us to relate to the world in a poverty spirit.
The very thought that we don’t have enough should take our mind to all God has. He is able and He owns it all, it doesn’t make sense that we would panic, other than we are trying to control our own circumstances. When we become limited, there is a greater problem than living in famine, it’s our heart. God doesn’t run out yet often during times of adversity, we are tried but God proves Himself to be faithful. It is joyful to walk through times of trouble with the Lord leading and guiding us.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4
