“Go to the ant you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise; it has no commander nor overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provision in summer and gathers its food at harvest” - Prov 6:6-8 (NIV)

Every life will have its moments of up and down, just as all nations go through economic cycles including recession. The best way to manage those periods of scarcity is to plan for the lean seasons, through the habit of saving.

When the ancient nation of Egypt underwent a severe time of famine it was able to prosper unlike others because it had saved grain for the lean times (Genesis 41:29- 36). This had been able because God had revealed to Joseph the drought to come who then shared with Pharaoh the meaning of his difficult dreams.

Saving is therefore an old Biblical principle. There will be high times in the life of every believer. Do not use those times carelessly and take to the habit of living like there is no tomorrow. Saving will enable you pass through successfully such lean times.

Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus of Nazareth that I know the power of saving so as to help me pass successfully through those lean times!

    "And your life will be brighter than the noonday; it’s darkness will be like the morning. And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security”  (Job 11:17-19.)

    Philosophers and writers have long pointed out that without hope mankind would long be gone. The philosopher Victor Frankly who survived the Holocaust where he lost his entire family found hope was the most important weapon that enabled him come out alive. He wrote, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how!”
    
Hope can sustain any of us through the darkest of times. This is what happened to Job when he lost everything he possessed. “Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face” (Job 13:15).

    King David when he was being pursued by his enemies never lost hope. “For you have been my hope, sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth” (Psalm 71:5). The Apostle Paul who faced countless perilous times during his missionary journeys including jail and shipwrecks never lost hope. Writing to the Corinthians he reminded them, “He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” (2 Cor 1:10-11).

    As believers God has given us hope that our lives are not empty and meaningless, like so many others. He has given us the hope to carry us through the lowest of moments. “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope” (Psalm 130:5).
    Today, may that hope that you have in Christ sustain you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

    Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray in the wonderful name of Jesus that the hope I have in you lifts me up and sustains me in all situations as a conquer, in whose name I pray.
