Will things get better? When will things get better in my
country? When will it turn around for the good?
These are the kind of questions I have been asking myself.
My country is in a very critical position right now.
Corruption has escalated much (but which country hasn’t)
Most businesses are closing. Unemployment has risen…..and,
and, and…….the list continues.
But is that not the story of the world?
The world is not getting brighter, easy to live in,
and so on. On the contrary, it is getting darker,
more evil, more corrupt…
I was waiting for things to get better in my country.
But there is a chance it might not get better but instead
deteriorate even more!
That is when with the help of a friend I realized I am
waiting on the wrong thing. My focus is wrong.
I serve an Almighty, Powerful God. He is not looking at what’s
happening around me to determine if He can bless me.
He is not moved by the darkness, corruption
and the evil in the world. If He wants to bless me He will
regardless of what is happening around me.
Can God provide for me in a desert?? Yes!
Let’s look at a few scriptures:
He split the rocks in the desert and gave them an ocean
of fresh water.
He brought a stream of water out of the rock and made it
flow like a river!
Psalms 78:15, 16 (ERV)
But you would be fed with the finest wheat;
with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.
Psalms 81:16 (NIV)
Think about a rock. It’s one of the hardest substances
on earth. You can’t break it easily. You will get nothing
from it. You can’t rely on it for sustenance but God says:
He will feed you with honey from the ROCK and
make water flow out from it……!
The conclusion is this: God CAN provide for you in the desert!
You can be surrounded by the worst circumstances ever
but God will still make a way for you. Don’t wait for man.
Don’t look to anything except God. There is hope for you.
The world wants you to think you are out of options.
It teaches you to look at what is in your hand and what is
happening around you to decide what you can have. But it’s a
lie……That is not faith!!
I am not waiting for things to get better anymore. I am not
waiting for the economy to get better because God is my
I don’t know where you are in life and what you are trusting
God for but know this: there is more!
God wants you to have more. You can pursue your dreams
even if there is nothing in your hands. You can ask the impossible,
pray the unthinkable because God is your God!
He surely is our amazing God!
