Divine direction and Expansion

Verse

… planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the LORD blessed him Gen 26:12

Thought

In midst of challenges, we will have divine direction and expansion from our Lord and saviour. Let us take courage and meditate on Isaac’s life.

ChallengesNow there was a famine in the land Gen 26:1. Isaac faced a famine in the land. Let us also realize that we will also face challenges.

ComfortThe LORD appeared to Isaac and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live. Stay in this land for a while, Gen 26:2,3a. Lord is reminding us; do not run from the tough situation. Stay in the same place, although we see nothing ahead let us listen and stay back.

CovenantI will be with you and will bless you. For to you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham Gen 26:3b It is the promise of the Lord that he will bless us in the place we are in. He will give us inheritance where we are.

ClaimIsaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the LORD blessed him. Gen 26:12. In tough times, let us claim the promise and work hard. Result and reward of hard and good work is from God.

Confirmation:  The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy. Gen 26:13. Lord will bless us abundantly when we listen and obey. Trust and stay still and know the mighty hand of the Lord.

Prayer

Lord; I will claim your promises. I will stay where I am and trust you although I see no visibility. Yes, I will continue in your strength. Amen.
