A Believer’s Poverty

Thought For Today: “A Believer’s Poverty”

The prophet Amos brings out that there exists in this world a famine, not just a famine due to drought or political finagling, but a famine of hearing God’s word.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God, “That I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.” (Amos 8:11)

But this famine is not only for God’s word, but for the Lord God Himself. This is brought out in Jesus’s letter to the church in Ephesus found in the book of Revelation, a church that is also believed to be the Last Days church.

Here Jesus said, “You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.” (Revelation 3:17)

And why we have this assurance from the Bible that God will never leave us nor forsake us as found in Deuteronomy 31:6-8 and Hebrews 13:5, we should also take to heart this admonition giving to king Asa by the prophet Azariah.

“Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.” (2 Chronicles 15:2)
