Plain and Simple: Why Faith Works! by Gene McGuire August, 2011

August 31, 2011

“Do not go down to Egypt; dwell in the land of which I shall tell you.” (Genesis 26:2)

 

COMMENT: In our Lead Scripture God is talking with Isaac telling him to “stay put”. I am sure that this was a “hard saying” to Isaac because there was a famine in the land and he must have been tempted to do what his father, Abraham, had done during that first famine .(Genesis 12:10) Isaac trusted the Lord more than he was afraid of the dry and arid land he saw. Abraham’s son was faithful and followed God’s advice. That faithful servant planted crops right where he was and “he 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) Sometimes the Word of God or the prompting of the Holy Spirit does not seem the right thing to do considering the circumstances. However 2 Cor. 5:7 admonishes us to WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT!

 

SCRIPTURE STUDY: Proverbs 3:5&6, 28:25 and 29:25

 

WISE SAYING: OBEDIENCE LEADS TO ABUNDANCE. (Pastor Amos Dodge)

WISE SONG LYRICS: CIRCUMSTANCES MAY LOOK GRIM, BUT I DON’T EVEN LOOK AT THEM. THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE TRUE; TRUST IN HIM AND HE’LL SEE YOU THROUGH (Gene McGuire)

Sincerely Yours, Gene McGuire
