OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS BRINGS PROSPERITY!
Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous (Genesis 26:12-13).
Every Christian should learn to listen to God’s instructions and obey them in life. Listening to God’s instructions and obeying them is the pathway to a life of prosperity and abundance. We find this in the life of Isaac. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that obedience to God’s instructions brings prosperity in life forever.
The Bible recorded that there was a great famine in the land of the Philistines, and Isaac wanted to relocate to the land of Egypt because of the famine. God asked him not to relocate to Egypt but to dwell in the land thus, “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” (Genesis 26:3). Therefore whenever a Christian learns to obey God’s instructions, he experiences divine prosperity in multiple folds in life forever.
As Christians, we should learn to obey God’s instructions for us to prosper in life. Obedience to God’s instructions is the pathway to your greatness in life. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in Isaiah 1:19, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” In fact, the good and the best of the land are always hidden underneath God’s instructions in life. Until a Christian obeys God’s instructions, he can never experience true prosperity and greatness in life. Isaac prospered because he obeyed God’s instructions in life forever.
Daily Tip: Obedience to God’s instructions is the pathway to your prosperity and greatness in life forever. Shalom!
