No Fruitless Efforts

3rd March 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 6: 24-25, 7: 1-20


“And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove's dung for five pieces of silver.” (2 Kings 6: 25)

As the famine in Samaria continued, things got so bad that an ass’ head was sold for eight shekels (pieces of silver), while dove’s dung went for five shekels. This was not a case of lack of money; the people in Samaria had money, but their money could not fetch them anything meaningful. They had resources, but what they had could not achieve much. They used so much to gain so little. Their efforts did not yield meaningful results.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in this year 2020, you shall have meaningful results from your efforts. You will not labour much and end up with nothing. Your resources will not fetch you worthless results; your labour will not fetch you meaningless results; you will not work so hard and end up with so little; you will not be the best and end up with the worst; you will not do so much only to end up with nothing; your efforts won’t be wasted.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: what you have will get you something bigger than what you have; your efforts will give you results that are bigger and better; your work will yield results that exceed your labour; your ideas will fetch more profit than you bargained for; your little will give rise to many; your pieces of silver will not lose value; your value will not be exchanged with emptiness; your efforts will not be fruitless.

As surely as the Lord lives, your efforts shall be more fruitful than ever before; you will do so little and it will fetch you so much; you will make little efforts and you will end up with amazing results; you will experience a divine multiplication of the value you carry so that your little will achieve more than you ever bargained for; you will be divinely energized for amazing results.

Get set: the season of fruitless efforts is over. Henceforth, you shall have more than you worked for.


No more fruitless efforts; my results exceed my efforts, in Jesus’ name!
