This passage tucked away in a short book at the end of the Old Testament is intriguing.  It says people, even young people will grow faint desperately seeking God’s Word.  I wish people had a great zeal for God’s Word today. I do. This passage says they look hard but a Word from God isn’t found.  I wouldn’t want life on this earth without the Bible.

Amos 8:

“The time is surely coming,” says the Sovereign Lord,
“when I will send a famine on the land—
not a famine of bread or water
but of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 People will stagger from sea to sea
and wander from border to border
searching for the word of the Lord,
but they will not find it.
13 Beautiful girls and strong young men
will grow faint in that day,
thirsting for the Lord’s word
