Abundance In Famine

The rain is falling here in Middle Tennessee this morning, and watching the drops land in puddles on the ground from my window is so relaxing. Morning rains keep the room dim and keeps the inhabitants of the house sleeping. This provides a very quiet morning for prayer, reading and true enjoyment of God’s presence. The other day the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “The person you spend the most time with is the person you talk about the most.” People have asked me how to do write a blog everyday? The answer is, it is not hard to talk about the person I spend the most time with.

Other people have felt like I pour out so much, I need time for “me”. I don’t do “me” time, because I do life with God and others, so it is always “we” time even when I am alone. God and me is a we and I don’t want it any other way. He is so present in every moment of the day, and since He lives in me, it is always “we” time, never “me” time.

This morning, rain falling, thoughts dancing in my spirit, word of God living and active, I was reading Proverbs 11 and it says, “The generous man will be prosperous, And he who waters will himself be watered.” As I read that the Lord said, “You want to know how to stay alive in a famine, in inflation, in high gas prices, in challenging times for your nation? Be generous on all occasions and in every way, for you will never run out and you will never run dry.” The world tells us to hoard, hold back, conserve, prices are high, supply is low, and we don’t know where this thing is going to go. But the Lord says, “My children, you will only dry out if you stop pouring out, you will only dry up if you clam up, shut up, button up your mouth and your money.” This is not the time to hold back, for it is always time to be generous in the kingdom of God. This is how we prosper in a famine.
