Thoughts Of Devotion:
The Bible teaches us that the God’s provision is secure in our lives, even when we live in hard times and times of lack. Isaac was living in a time of great hunger upon the earth. It was in that situation that God tells Isaac in Genesis 26:2, “Then the Lord appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you.” Gods orders were very clear, don’t go to Egypt! Isaac had to surrender his will in order to accept Gods will.
If Isaac was to experience Gods supernatural provision it would be necessary to obey and trust in The Lords guidance. The instructions were very clear, God told him, stay in the land of hunger, in the place of lack, misery and need! God was about to give him a supernatural harvest, but this miracle would not take place in Egypt, the warning was very clear, “Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, And rely on horses, Who trust in chariots because they are many, And in horsemen because they are very strong, But who do not look to the Holy One of Israel, Nor seek The Lord!” Isaiah 31:1 (NKJV)
Today our trust is not in this worlds economy, our provision is not dependent in the system of this human government. We depend completely in God, outside Him there is no supernatural provision. The instructions for Isaac were, plant yourself there, be fruitful where you are, don’t look for other green pastures! Today we have to labor where we are, not where we would like to be. Where God has us, we must plant ourselves and sow the seed that God has placed in our hands! Remember what Ecclesiastes 11:6 tells us, “In the morning sow your seed, And in the evening do not withhold your hand; For you do not know which will prosper, Either this or that, Or whether both alike will be good.”
Genesis 24:1 (NKJV) — 1 Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.
Genesis 26:3 (NKJV) — 3 Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father.
Proverbs 10:22 (NKJV) — 22 The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
Job 42:12 (NKJV) — 12 Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.
Psalms 67:6 (NKJV) — 6 Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us.
Ecclesiastes 11:6 (NKJV) — 6 In the morning sow your seed, And in the evening do not withhold your hand; For you do not know which will prosper, Either this or that, Or whether both alike will be good.
