I ABOUT JUMPED OUT OF THE CHAIR WHEN I STARTED READING THIS PORTION OF THE WORD!
Gen. 26:12-16, 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. So the Philistines envied him. 15 Now the Philistines had stopped up all the wells which his father’s servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, and they had filled them with earth. 16 And Abimelech said to Isaac, “Go away from us, for you are much mightier than we.”
ISAAC SOWED IN THE LAND!
Seed + Dirt = HARVEST!
It is an eternal priniciple that cannot be extracted. We see this same principle in Matt. 13 with the parable of the sower and the seed.
ISAAC SOWED AND THERE WAS A RESULT!
1) Began to prosper
2) Continued to prosper
3) Became VERY prosperous
This shows the power of a seed. One seed produces a harvest that must then be replanted. The more seed, the more you plant, the more you prosper in every area of your life.
THIS WAS NOT DETERMINED BY CIRCUMSTANCES.
There was a famine in the land, BUT GOD and His Word always works.
REACTIONS TO ISAAC’S PROSPERITY
People will react to the blessing God is bringing in your life. Be prepared for negative when Jesus begins to pour out the harvest.
1) They envied
2) They attacked
3) They cast him away
People who have a POVERTY mentality do not rejoice when you are being blessed, they get envious.
NEVER ALLOW SOMEONE TO STEAL THE JOY OF THE SEED YOU HAVE PLANTED AND ARE NOW REAPING.
The only way to remain in a poverty mentality is to not be a person of the Word with seedtime and harvest.
PLANT SEED TODAY!
