Topic: The Wisdom In Having A Reserve [Wednesday November 29, 2017]
Scripture: This food should be held in reserve for the country, to be used during the seven years of famine that will come upon Egypt, so that the country may not be ruined by the famine. Genesis 41:36 (NIV)
Thought For Today: It is your savings that saves you from future sobbing.
Wisdom is the application of the right knowledge for effective result and impact. It is the correct application of mentality to activity.
It is wisdom that differentiates an overcomer from an under-goer; wisdom is the demarcating line between a celebrity and a nonentity; wisdom is a key to stardom. Kingdoms are stabilized by wisdom.
Our anchor Scripture above reviews the wisdom for maintaining a reserve as exemplified by Joseph in Egypt. Joseph seemed to have told Pharaoh, ‘In order for the people not to starve to death tomorrow, they must reserve some portions of their surplus today.’
Beloved, the reserve is a secret of rescue for life and destiny. It is your savings that saves you from future sobbing and embarrassment.
There are some people whose factories are in the toilet; their estates and duplexes have been buried in the toilets. This is because each time they close from work, they must stop over at KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken), Mr. Biggs, Chicken Republic and the likes to squander their money.
The truth is, after just few hours, they would be on their way to the toilet, and the cycle continues. So, instead of building their duplexes on land, they build them in the toilets due to over-spending and excessive eating. As a result, they are left without a reserve, nothing saved for the future. What a colossal waste!
But you shall not be a victim, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: It is your savings that saves you from future sobbing.
- Make a conscientious determination to have a storehouse (savings).
Endeavour not to eat everything that enters your hand; save a percentage of it.
