Daily Fountain 2017 - When God Blesses A Man





Monday July 10

Bible Reading:     Gen. 26: 12 - 22
Topic:                  When God Blesses A Man

Having obeyed God and stayed in Gerar during the famine, instead of moving to Egypt, Isaac sowed in that land and reaped a hundredfold.

This was possible, not just because Isaac was the seed of Abraham but also because he looked beyond his circumstance and trusted and obeyed God.

This prosperity brought him envy, hatred and rejection from those who previously accepted him as a friend.

As God's children in Christ, we too are joint-heirs with Christ of all the blessings of Heaven )Eph. 1: 3).

No matter the difficulties, challenges, scarcity, economic meltdown in the Nation, e.t.c. we too will prosper if we trust God as Isaac did.

Therefore, we should not allow the state of the Nation's economy to dictate how we live our lives.

God is able to make us prosper in our own land of famine.

God has determined greatness for us not just prosperity; for Isaac waxed great, went forward and grew until he became very great (v. 13)

You are in for the season of God's blessing; look up to Him, trust Him and obey Him that He may manifest and show Himself strong on your behalf.

Prayer
Oh Lord, thank You for all Your provisions for me. Help me to always stay connected to you in the Name of my Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
