Amos 8:11 ” The days are coming, declares the Sovereign Lord, when I will send a famine through the land – not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.”

Many times throughout the Bible God was silent.  I Samuel Chapter 3 starts out, ‘In those days the word of the Lord was rare…”  There was little if any prophetic revelation and a real lack of those who truly had a message from God.  At those times in history it seemed like a desert…a dry place with no hope or encouragement.  The Psalmist summed it up well when he wrote, “O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still.” (Psalm 83:1)  A famine of food or water pales in comparison to the bread of life and the living waters of God’s precious word.
