Blessing

Standard

Genesis 26:12 “Then Isaac  sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him.”

God told Isaac to ‘stay’ in the land, even though there was a famine. His father Abraham had gone down to Egypt during a famine in his day & picked up many problems. Isaac obeyed God & ‘stayed’ & ‘sowed’ in the Promised Land. The land was the ‘place’ of covenant. It’s us remaining in the church, the ‘place’ God has prepared for us.

In a time of drought & famine, Isaac stepped out & sowed seed. We must keep giving even in famine. Sowing & giving are synonomous in Paul’s writings. 

Our harvests don’t just fall in our lap. We must go out & reap the answers to our prayers. Blessings always falls on the obedient. God was quick to display His pleasure with Isaac – In the same year – He reaped ‘100 fold’.

See you in Church!
