As I read Amos, it strikes me that God is reminding us to trust Him in times of peril.  When you are hungry, when you are thirsty, when war and famine come, turn to He who provides.  It is that belief and reliance upon God which gives strength.

God wants to bless you, and even in your darkest hour, you must believe that and be thankful for, all that He has given, and all that is yet to come. It is at these dark times, times of uncertainty and fear, that you might pray, “Father, I don’t know what tomorrow brings, but I trust that you have my future in Your hands, and together, we will be fine.  Thank you, Father, for the blessings yet to come.  Amen.”
