Sell Your Grains
Key Text: Proverbs 11:26
The people will curse him who withholds grain, but blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.
Have you ever sought to buy something but couldn’t get it, not because it’s unavailable but because the owners have refused to sell it? It’s such a frustrating experience when people hoard products or withhold services just to create scarcity and jack up prices so as to make super profits for themselves.
This issue of refraining from selling “Grain” becomes a serious one that the scripture makes it an issue of curses and blessings. No wonder the foolish farmer in Luke 12:18 who in a particular year of bountiful harvest said to himself “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry”; had a very harsh judgement: His soul was demanded that same night: Why? Because he wouldn’t offer (not even for sale) what God has blessed him with.
Remember the seven years of famine in Egypt, the bible records that “Joseph opened all the storehouses and sold grain to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe throughout Egypt”. Genesis 41:56. If he had taken undue advantage of the people, by not selling the grains as and when due, he may have been cursed also.
Consider the words of Zig Ziglar, he said “Selling is not something you do TO someone; it’s something you do FOR someone”
What are you hoarding knowingly or unknowingly that is barricading your blessings, what do you have that the souls of men are yearning for? What are your gifts, talents and callings that you are yet to offer to the blessing of mankind? Remember “All creation awaits the manifestation of the children of God”-Don’t be cursed!
People are hungry for food, People are hungry for care, people are hung
ry for knowledge, men are hungry for direction, for financial freedom, men are hungry for the word of God, for the salvation of their souls and that of their bodies.
Take inventory of what you can offer today: be it a product, a service, your knowledge (in form of training, seminar and books), your skills, training, your life experience; whatever it may be, commit to offering it to the world around you and watch how blessing will roll into your life.
Souls are famished for what you have to offer: START SELLING YOUR GRAINS TODAY.
Prayer: Thank you Lord for the blessings you have bestowed upon me; help me to share with humanity that which you have assigned for me to share.
You will succeed!
