God blessed many in the Bible by putting them at the right place at the right time, and He continues to do the same for His people today. Read on and let Joseph Prince show you how, when you turn to God in confidence, trusting in His grace and favor rather than your circumstances, you will find God-moments of success!
God wants to share with you the secret of how to live successfully during this time of financial turmoil. Ecclesiastes 3:15 says, “That which is has already been”. In other words, what is happening now has happened before—history repeats itself. So we can look at how God supplied for His people then and understand how He provides for us today.
It’s interesting to note that in Genesis, there was a global famine during Joseph’s life, and now in the end times, there is also a global financial famine. We see financial experts at a loss as to what to do next, and the news reports are often negative and depressing. Today’s situation can be described in Ecclesiastes 9:12:
For man also does not know his time: Like fish taken in a cruel net, like birds caught in a snare, so the sons of men are snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly upon them.
But let me share some good news with you and show you what God is doing during this “evil time”. In Ecclesiastes 9:11, Solomon says,
I returned and saw under the sun that—the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.
A Son Of God, Not Of Adam
It is important to remember that what is happening right now is not from God. This “cruel net” that the world is caught in, this financial famine, was not caused by God. And although “sons of men” may be snared like birds—even financial experts have been taken by surprise and are losing money—this does not apply to you, a believer in Christ.
How do I know this? Let us take a closer look at the term “sons of men”.
There are five Hebrew words for “man”. In Ecclesiastes 9:12—“So the sons of men are snared in an evil time”—the word used is adam, which means mankind or natural man. Therefore, those caught in the evil time are sons of adam, natural man.
Some of you may say, “Pastor Prince, it seems like I’m caught in this net too.” It might seem that way, but you are not. As believers, we are sons of God, not sons of adam. John 1:12 says,
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name…
So we are all, ladies too, sons of God! And once you are a son, you are a son forever. Your heavenly Father wants to give you success, so let’s find out about being at the right place at the right time.
