OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S INSTRUCTION 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 instruction and obey it. Listening to God’s instruction and obeying it 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 who really wants his path and ways to be full of prosperity should endeavor to listen to God’s instruction and obey it daily in life.
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). The ability to recognize, listening to God’s instruction and obeying it in life are what makes a Christian fully matured and committed in life.
As Christians, we should learn to listen and obey God’s instruction for us to prosper in life. Obedience to God’s instruction is the pathway to your greatness. 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.” Until you obey God’s instruction, you can never experience true prosperity and greatness. It is in obedience to God’s instruction that leads one into the life of prosperity and breakthrough forever. Therefore, Isaac indeed prospered because he listened and obeyed God’s instruction to the letter.
Daily Tip: Obedience to God’s instruction is indeed the pathway to your prosperity and greatness in life forever. Shalom!
