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 by listening to God’s instructions bring prosperity in life. Indeed, a Christian who really wants his path and ways to be full of prosperity should endeavor to listen to God’s instructions and obey them daily 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 in life. 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, the ability to recognize by listening to God’s instructions and obeying them in life are what make a Christian fully matured and committed in life. There is absolutely no one that will ever listen to God’s instructions and live like a pauper in life forever.
As Christians, we should learn to listen and 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, absolute obedience to God’s instructions leads to a life of increase and total abundance. Until you obey God’s instructions, you can never experience true prosperity and greatness in life. It is in obedience to God’s instructions that lead one into the life of prosperity and breakthrough. Therefore, Isaac indeed prospered because he listened and obeyed God’s instructions to the letter in life forever.
Daily Tip: Obedience to God’s instructions is indeed the pathway to your prosperity and greatness in life forever. Shalom!
