GEN. 2612-14, Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. 13 The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; 14 for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants.
We know that Isaac ACTIVATED THE PRINCIPLES OF SOWING AND REAPING during the GREAT FAMINE of the day.
When Isaac sowed in the famine (which is foolish to do in the natural), God’s promise of SEEDTIME & HARVEST created his wealth.
Isaac was not just wealthy, but he was so wealthy that Abimelech had his men fill in the wells that produced water, and told him to leave because of his wealth. Verse 16, And Abimelech said to Isaac, “Go away from us, for you are much mightier than we.”
SEE PASTOR? GOD BLESSED HIM, BUT THEN IT ALL FELL APART BECAUSE OF THE GOVERNMENT THAT HE WAS UNDER.
God’s blessing, His principles are LARGER than any government, economy, or influence!
THE FAVOR, WHICH IS THE RESULT OF THE SEED, FOLLOWED ISAAC WHEREVER HE WENT.
Valley of Gerar (vs. 17) – re-excavated the wells that Abraham had dug = water during the drought.
The servants dug 3 more wells and each one produced water…..
Verses 23-25, Then he went up from there to Beersheba. 24 And the Lord appeared to him the same night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham’s sake.” 25 So he built an altar there and called on the name of the Lord, and he pitched his tent there; and there Isaac’s servants dug a well.
THE SEED PLANTED DURING THE FAMINE, NOT ONLY MADE ISAAC WEALTHY, BUT FOLLOWED HIM FROM LOCATION TO LOCATION. OUR BLESSING IS NOT BASED ON ECONOMICS – IT IS BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF HEAVEN = SEED!
Our seed of the now is our harvest of our future – perpetuated!
SOW PERPETUAL SEED TO RECEIVE THE PERPETUAL HARVEST.
Jesus wants you blessed and not cursed by the land!
