When all is well and good, save some for a drought season. We tend to enjoy the success of the moment so much we forget that seasons do change. When seasons change we start blaming God, calling Him some funny names forgetting that there was a season we had plenty and at that time we called Him the provider.
The Egyptians saved food during the time of plenty, and during the famine Egypt was the food supplier for nations. Israel was turned into slaves because they did not save food for the drought season. There may be no slavery these days but we are slaves to debt and to many other things that control our earnings because we opted to enjoy the moment and forget that there is tomorrow. Hear it from me, I know what I mean been there, done that; I hope you do not find yourself in such situations.
Genesis 41: 29 -30 records that; “Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land.”
One thing about lack is that, it makes you forget that God provided at some point in life. It makes one believe that God has forsaken them and that God does not care about their life. Lack makes you forget that God prospered you in the prior season and the joy of abundance will easily be forgotten.
When floods of blessings come, save some for the later drought because seasons do change! Your reserves will cushion the intensity of the drought; the famine will not affect you when others are struggling. However, if you are in a drought season already know that your rainy season will also come but make sure you keep the seed ready lest you are found with nothing to plant. The seed planted into your future will be your faith in God. Believe that your life cannot be judged by a season but by the fulfilled purpose for your destiny.
The Lord has given us wisdom to manage our lives, He cannot manage it for us. God’s job is to give gifts and management of the gift is your responsibility. We need to discipline ourselves. However, discipline is one most difficult things that even highly anointed may be failing at, but it is upon oneself to see to it that you manage well what God has given you. If you cannot be trusted with the little how can God trust you with plenty?
