Getting to the root of Spiritual Famine

Getting to the root of Spiritual Famine


Second Samuel 21 and verse 1: Now there was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year.
So these were three consecutive years. And David sought the presence of the
Lord and the Lord said it is for Saul and his bloody house because he put the
Gibeonites to death. He sought the Lord. Now we don’t know whether he went to the tabernacle or whether he was just in his private prayer closet but whatever he
did David said we’re in a problem we’re in a fix we’re in a crisis and the only
answer to this is going to come from God. And so he sought the Lord and in seeking
the Lord he realized there had to be a route to the problem, there had to be a
source of the problem and so he began to seek the Lord. Something has grieved God – we are in a famine in the land flowing with milk and honey. We are in a famine
in the land of promise. Something’s wrong and I’ve got to find out what it is and
so he sought the Lord. Typically when you see a famine in the Bible you should
always look behind the scenes and see what the source of that famine was
because there’s always something behind the scenes. It may look on the surface
like a famine problem but it’s something deeper than that, it’s something bigger
than that, it’s the problem behind the problem. And we can miss revival looking
at the symptoms that I’ve just gone over and not go down to the core of the
problem and find out what the source of those symptoms are. You see what looks
like the issue may not be the issue. The issue may be the consequence of a sin that you’re not aware of yet.
