Daily Thought – In midst of challenges

Comments

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

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.

Challenges: Now 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.

Comfort: The 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.

Covenant: I 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.

Claim: Isaac 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; we will claim your promises. We will stay where we are and will trust in you although we see no visibility. Yes, we will continue in your strength. Amen.
