Summary

Tactics and Strategies for the Famine discusses global issues, particularly national and global economics and the worldwide recession, from a biblical perspective, and from that point they remain real, current, and relevant, but not devoid of hope. This book allows readers to see things from a different angle and lets them know that hope, change, and viable solutions are within reach. This book contains simple language to explain the otherwise daunting topics while providing scriptural references.

Excerpts

Are We Ready For Change? In our world today, where many of our businessmen, economists and strategists are frantically seeking solutions and changes in order to at least maintain economic viability, there are few signs of hope. With the major shaking that took place on Wall Street, the failure of local cash schemes and the US Bank bailouts, hope for change seems to be on a downward spiral to failure! We have seen many organizations take a downturn and sales are on the decline bringing serious repercussions on businesses everywhere. It is imperative that investors and organizational boards realize that changing executives and other direct staff in order to achieve overall performance improvement will only make things worse. Cutting overheads first is not the way to go! In fact, the old way of doing business is over! You must get to the root of the problem and fix it there. Ask yourself these questions. ? What is your organization willing to do differently in order increase sales and profit? ? What unusual strategic methods are you willing to implement, in order to achieve greater success? ? Is your organization willing to adopt Biblical Principles to turn things around? We need to stop looking at the Bible as a collection of irrelevant, historical data, and realize that it is a Book of Principles, Instructions and Solutions, which when applied daily, will bring success! Pharaoh employed certain God-given principles when he appointed Joseph and implemented the solutions God gave Joseph. An entire nation was saved from recession, in addition to millions of jobs. Similarly, Hezekiah brought national reform – II Chronicles 31. Contrary to popular belief, we too can employ these principles and positively affect our organizations and our nation! The question is, if everything that you do fails, are you willing to try something else or to change? Remember, the principles on which you build our organizations (foundation) form the key to your success; and "... unless the Lord build the house, you labor in vain." What Leaders Should Do Many leaders worldwide are blaming each other for the economic instability, which results in further political instability which will continue unless there is a change in our way of thinking. What leaders should do is learn from king David's experience in II Samuel 24. When David had sinned by calling for a census to be taken in order to see if he had the military strength to go into battle; it meant he was putting total confidence in man's strength than in God's capacity to give them a victory. When a leader puts greater trust in man, figures, resources and qualifications than in God's capacity to multiply, increase or turn around circumstances and even people, then it opens the door for recession, famine, disease, plagues, disaster and loss. Ultimately, the cost to David was greater in the end, and he ultimately had to go to God in repentance. One mistake of a nation's leader can cause the entire nation to suffer. The question now is, 'Whom do you trust?' New Mind, New Wine New Business To deal with the economic crises and other global social issues we are facing, as leaders we must always dig deeper each day in the things of God, in order to get the necessary solutions. Time changes, people change, the market demands change – EVERYTHING CHANGES! Even the rate of the dollar changes! Very shortly, you will see a shortage of foreign exchange in circulation. Now, if everything changes, but our minds/mindsets don't change, how will we deal with the changes in demand. The old order cannot deal with the new order. The mind must be renewed each day that we may be able to accurately discern market in order to prevent loss and further problems in the economy. The solutions that nations have had thus far are: ? Redundancy Exercises ? Increasing Taxes ? Capitalizing on Immorality ? Giving waivers to foreign investors ? Divesting the land and assets of the nation ? Borrowing from International Lenders ? Making Decision that affect mainly the small businesses and the poor All these decisions are nothing new and it will only create greater hardship for new businesses, new jobs, new ideas; we must embrace New Wine! It is time for us to try unconventional methods. How about this? The mind of the individual must grow before economy can grow. There is no way locally or globally, we can build on 2 foundations. At this juncture, we don't need any more statistics, research and documentation. ? We need action and results! ? We need to ask some pertinent questions. ? Who controls the economy? ? Who decides success or failure? In the same way that hurdling poverty begins in the mind, likewise economic change must first start in the mind. So, before that changes, the mind must change, when the mind changes, the speech will change and when that changes, the environment will change and then our pockets will have more than change! Without a mind change, regardless of the program we put in place, it is going to fail and put us into further debt.
