OBEDIENCE IN ASSIGNED LOCATION (Genesis 26:1-16)

 

It is one thing to know to plant and it is another to know where to plant. You must obey the law of the kind of soil that is favourable to your seed or else you will not get result. Isaac was an experienced farmer and he was sensitive enough to know that nothing will grow in a parched land due to famine, because of this, he made to leave that land. But in the spirit which he was not oblivious of at the point in time, he was standing on a very fertile land that favours what he want to do. The Lord sent word to him to stay in that land and sow, he obeyed and did sow in that seemingly impossible land and he reaped a hundredfold. V12 “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year a hundredfold. And Jehovah blessed him”.

Many people do not seek the face of God concerning their movement and endeavours hence they run into many problems. Many people have relocated from their divine allocation because of temporal setbacks that they encountered. I knew of a lady that despised a young man that asked her for marriage all because he was poor at that time. When they met two years later, the story of the young man has changed and unfortunately for the lady, he has gotten a better lady while she was yet unmarried. Before you take any hasty step or decision, seek the face of God concerning it so that it will profit you.

Additionally, you must plant the right seeds to get the right harvest. If you don’t plant anything, don’t expect any harvest. There are people that have millions in their accounts, yet many are dying of hunger in their neighbourhood. A man went and bought an SUV worth millions of naira because the road to his house was bad. The amount to fix the road is far lower than the cost of the car but his self-centered nature didn’t allow him. Galatians 6:7 “Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap”. Sow into the kingdom of God, the lives of your spiritual leaders, your family, the society, the less privilege etc. as you do, you will in due season receive full harvest. 1John 5:3 “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome”.

 

Prayer point: Father release upon me the grace to give in Jesus name.
