Joseph’s economic path

proverbs-418So he gathered up all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities; he laid up in every city the food of the fields which surrounded them.  Joseph gathered very much grain, as the sand of the sea, until he stopped counting, for it was immeasurable.
(Genesis 41:48-49 New King James Version (NKJV))
But the Path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. (Proverbs 4:18)

Is the new year going to be a boom year? Coming back to economics, supply and demand are tied to each other. When there is demand there is an opportunity for supply. Joseph knew how to take good care of the fat years preparing for the lean years ahead. Some nations’ currencies are fast depreciating against the strong US$. What can a resident in those nations do? What did Joseph do? He invested (bought) stuff that could be stored without going bad and sell at the lean time when there was a surging demand for the stuff (in this case grain). What is the Holy Spirit saying to you in your own nation? What will be in short supply? I don’t know. You ask in prayers. Paul prayed for the Spirit of revelation and wisdom in Ephesians 1. Now is the relevant time to repeatedly pray the same prayer again unless you already know the answer to the question.
