20-Aug-2017: Famine & Sowing

And Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. The Lord blessed him, and the man became rich, and gained more and more until he became very wealthy. He had possessions of flocks and herds and many servants, so that the Philistines envied him – Genesis 26:12‭-‬14

When you read this whole chapter, you will know that Isaac was in the land of famine – Gerar. The Lord told him to sojourn in that land and not move down to anywhere else.

Isaac obeyed the Lord whom his Father trusted with all of his being. As a young child he has been observing his Father- Abraham being devoted to the God who flourished him from nothing.

Even when famine hits a place that you are in, remember God has given you a seed called trust. Sow your trust in speaking and living the Word of God in the midst of nothingness. Like Isaac, you too; will experience a hundred-fold.

Famine and nothingness will not exist when we are in the center of His will. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be effortless and a child’s play. Sowing is hard work, and reaping demands a phase of waiting with great expectation and trust in the One who promised to fulfill His Word to You.

We are Abrahamic generation becasue of the Grace of God upon our lives. The promise on Abraham will take root in our lives too. When Isaac flourished, there were a set of people that envied him. On one side when you experience greatness there is another side that lifts up it’s ugly fangs of disapproval and destruction. In the midst of such situations Isaac had to trust God and not retaliate with evil. God honored this man by telling him,  “I am the God of Abraham your father. Fear not, for I am with you and will bless you and multiply your offspring for my servant Abraham’s sake” – Genesis 26:24

No matter what plots the enemy has built for your downfall, the Lord will rescue you and multiply you for HIS Glory’s sake.

Obey, Trust and Sow; you will surely reap the returns from His plenty.
