Daily Verses: Genesis 26:1-13
Key Verse: Genesis 26:12: Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him.
When Isaac lived in Gerar, there was famine in the land. But Isaac believed in what the Lord had promised Abraham, Isaac’s father, that He would bless Abraham’s descendants in abundance. Holding on to that promise, Isaac ventured to sow in the ground that was dry and not producing anything. Because of his faith, the Lord blessed the seed that was sowed and Isaac received a hundredfold. Sowing is important because the Word of God says that whatever we sow we shall reap. Just like a farmer, the amount that he reaps depends on how much seed he sowed. If we sow a lot of blessings, goodness, love, and other positive things, we will also reap the same amount back. Other than in the form of materials and goodness, the harvest that we receive can come in the form of expected miracles and even miracles that are unthinkable. The God that we worship is a God who is never in debt. Therefore, diligently sow so that we can enjoy the results.
I want to be obedient when the Holy Spirit tells me to sow for God’s work or for the needs of other people.
I’m going to sow ever more than I did last year.
2 Corinthians 9:6: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
I’m going to declare the word of God so that there will be many positive changes and miracles in my life and in the life of our family.
