Sowing in Times of Famine
In times of famine or crisis, the initial reaction of many people is to keep the seed instead of planting it. But the case of Isaac was different.
Isaac experienced great famines in their land and during those times, God spoke to him and said in Genesis 26:12, “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live. Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you …”
And what did Isaac do? In Genesis 26:6, he “stayed in Gerar” then in verse 12, he “planted crops in that land…” And what happened after Isaac did this? “The same year he reaped a hundredfold, because the LORD blessed him.”
How did Isaac experience God’s blessings in times of famine?
There are plenty of seeds that you can sow for the Lord. It can be your time, talent, resources, or material blessings. But the best seed that you can sow is your LIFE. In
