“After Abraham’s death, God poured out rich blessings on Isaac, who settled near Beer-lahairol in the Negev.”
Functional divine covenants activate automatically at the point of need and they are also trans-generational. The later very important because if you keep all material things for your children without passing onto them divine agreements, grace and favour, you have failed woefully in this life. Yes, everything is not just about now, but about the future, about your successors, about the spiritual legacies you will ultimately leave behind. This is very important because some of these promises will surely outlive you. They are for you, your children and children children. So, be very careful of what you are leaving for them. Will it be divine curses, anger, stolen wealth, blood- stained fame and resources, enmity or will it be divine favour, godliness and blessings?
Abraham left God’s covenant of favour, prosperity, good heath, full age, blessings, divine presence, victory and protection for his children, especially Isaac; his covenant successor. Look at the above text in Genesis 25:11 again. After Abraham’s death, God POURED out rich blessings on Isaac his son. My God! Poured? Yes! Poured! Imagine that. It’s always great for God to bless a man, but imagine how it will look like when the blessings are poured like rain from haven. This simply means that God blessed Abraham’s son more and without measure. Divine covenants if properly managed will always get better, wider and sweeter with the subsequent generations. My children will be greater, better, richer, wiser, more favoured and anointed than me. Sure! Yes, as a student of divine agreements, I am always conscious of this. True!
Look at what happened at the time of Isaac when there was famine in the land. Unlike his father that went down to Egypt to wait out the scarcity, God pointedly told Isaac not to go to Egypt, but stay in the same land. Isaac obeyed and stayed in Gerar. That same year, the bible said that, “Isaac’s crops were tremendous! He harvested a hundred times more grain that he planted, for the LORD blessed him. He became a rich man, and his wealth only continued to grow. He acquired large flocks of sheep and goats, great herds of cattle, and many servants.” Wonderful! Covenants speaking! As you read this message, believe and obey it, May this same divine covenant speak for you in Jesus’ name! In this same year, on this same land you will reap hundred folds. God will bless and make you rich. And your WEALTH SHALL CONTINUE TO GROW! Yes, it shall be so because I have a covenant with Him that anybody I bless shall be blessed! My God! You are indeed favour to be
reading this message at this time.
God was with Isaac exactly as He was with Abraham his father. Everywhere Isaac went, God blessed, favoured and related with him. He never left Isaac alone. There is nothing stronger than covenant in this life. It does not fail! It is everlasting. It is most powerful and trans-generational. It sorts. It secures. It protects. It attracts. It preserves. It favours. It lives. It provides. In fact, when every other thing fails, divine covenant still speaks. Have you initiated any with Him? Do so immediately. We will continue next week. You are indeed blessed!
