“The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous.” Genesis 26:13
A born again child of the Lord God Almighty who keeps His commandments, His statutes and His laws will become supernaturally prosperous. God blessed Isaac because his father “Abraham obeyed the Lord and kept His charge, His commandments, His statutes and His laws” Genesis 26:5. Abraham’s obedience to God resulted in a blessing to Isaac. I have seen the same kind of blessing come upon believers as soon as they come closer to the Lord. God sees the heart, the commitment and the faith of the believer to serve Him wholeheartedly which in turn will bring blessings upon them. Remember we ought to be sold out to God.
As you obey God, he will take you to greener pastures where you might be all by yourself. Although the whole world will be crying out RECESSION the place where He has taken you will always be green for you. We read in Genesis 26:12 “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold, and the Lord blessed him.” Isaac reaped a hundredfold in a land hit by famine Genesis 26:1. If this has happened for Isaac, it is the same for you too.
“The blessings of the Lord will come upon you and it will start to overtake you because you obey the voice of the Lord” Deuteronomy 28:2. The blessings of the Lord will come upon you without your knowledge and the people of the land will start envying you as we read in Genesis 26:14 “So the Philistines envied him.” Do not worry when this happens to you. Stay cool because God is in control. “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” 1 John 4:4.
The envy of the people will be turned into favor by the Lord. People will start fearing you because they will come to know that the Lord is with you. “You are now the blessed of the Lord” Genesis 26:29.
