“This is what I told Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do. Here it is: there will be seven years of abundance throughout the whole land of Egypt; but afterwards, there will come seven years of famine; and Egypt will forget all the abundance. The famine will consume the land, and the abundance will not be known in the land because of the famine that will follow, because it will be truly terrible.”
Genesis 41:28-31 CJB
Here we see God speaking through Joseph, warning Egypt (the world) that things are gonna get rough! Human tendency is when things get rough we seem to forget how good the LORD is and we start dwelling on our situation instead of focusing on the LORD!
I believe we are seeing a great many similarities happening in the world around us today.
“Iyov (Job) got up, tore his coat, shaved his head, fell down on the ground and worshipped; he said, Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will return. Adonai gave; Adonai took; blessed be the name of Adonai.
In all this Iyov neither committed a sin or put blame on God.”
Job 1:20-22 CJB
The sad thing is even believers can blame God when things start to get bad! In my opinion, things are really starting to get bad, riots, pandemics and political unrest! The only thing that is good is the LORD! So as the world is falling apart, our focus needs to be on the LORD and sharing His Good News of Salvation!
“Taste, and see that Adonai is good. How blessed are those who take refuge in Him!”
Psalm 34:8 CJB
Today, as the world is definitely going down the drain, so to speak, remember the LORD is good and has an abundant future in store for us!
May we reflect His light today!
