Famine In The Promised Land

Get Guidance for Your Own Purpose!

And they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan.

Genesis 12: 5

Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to dwell there, for the famine was severe in the land.                    

Genesis 12: 10

When God calls people into the ministry, He often calls them out of “abundance”, “riches” and in some cases, “comfort”. Therefore, there is usually a feeling that the call is definitely taking them to heights higher than abundance, riches and comfort. In fact, most people believe that the call is going to make them so powerful that at their words, the sun will even set.

However, when they respond to the call and get into the ministry, they are often shocked and even disappointed over the attendant “realities”. Money isn’t coming as they anticipated, no comfort and in fact, they have to survive on very little!

And so, in the midst of the shock and "disappointment", most people with great promises in ministry usually decide to go to Egypt - they draw back, saying, if the front isn’t favorable, at least, the back will be.

But really, we are not meant to always draw back in difficult moments; rather, we are expected to seek for God’s will and stick with it.

In ministry, there are inbuilt situations (famines) to chase any doubting Thomas away to Egypt, but with God’s instruction, obedience, hardwork and endurance, the storm will be over, the tide will turn, and the stories will become testimonies.

There was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was

in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of Philistines, in Gerar. Then the LORD appeared to him and said. DO NOT GO DOWN TO EGYPT, LIVE IN THE LAND OF WHICH I SHALL TELL YOU DIVELL IN THIS LAND, AND I WILL BE WITH YOU AND BLESS YOU

Genesis 26: 1- 5

The scripture above reveals clearly to me that famine is a normal phenomenon in ministry, and we are not meant to leave ministry for it; instead, we are expected to remain. Remain! Doing what? Then I say, sowing. Ministry isn’t a call into idleness and just sleeping; but a call into labouring in word and prayer - a call into impact in relevance in one's generation!

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.

Nuggets for Leaders



Wisdom is not accessible to a lazy person, because he would not want to labour himself with the issues of life - saying it is too demanding!




Trust and Obey are two words that define the unbreakable relationship between humanity and divinity. If you do not OBEY, you only confirm you do not TRUST (either at all or enough). Yet, until you OBEY, God cannot treat you the way you love Him to. Start the right pathway today - do your own part of obeying the LORD; even then, He will trust you with more of your own heart desires!




Cast your care and concerns upon Christ Jesus - He truly care for you and capable to bear you throughout your days on this uncertain life!




The most reliable and assured place to FIND and KNOW the WILL of God on earth till date is the WRITTEN Word of God. The more you intimate yourself with what God had spoken in the past, the more you situate yourself to hear, discern and understand when He speaks to you today about any matter!
