““Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord God, “when I will send a famine on the land— not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord. They shall wander from sea to sea, and from north to east; they shall run to and fro, to seek the word of the Lord, but they shall not find it” (Amos 8:11–12).
For those of us who have a Bible or several Bibles, treasure reading it and speaking its truth to others, it is very hard to imagine having a famine like this. Because of Israel’s long history of rejecting God’s Word and going their own way, this famine is occurring now. But a time will come when they will want someone to speak “the words of the Lord” and there will be no one.
Do you realize what a privilege it is for us who have Bibles, to read them, and hear the Word of the Lord spoken to us? Please do not take this for granted! Do not harden your heart. The writer of Hebrews warns us twice; “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your heart as in the rebellion” (3:15; 4:7). The danger of not hearing now is that we may get to a point when we cannot hear even if we wanted to. Quickly repent so your ears are open to hear the Word.
