God Will Be With You - Bro. T. Stephen

My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today the special word of God for you is taken from the book of Genesis 26:3, “I will be with thee and bless thee. “

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above verse we see how God speaks to Isaac and confirms His word to him. He assures to Isaac that He would be with him and bless him. He instructs Isaac to stay in the place where he assigns. He says,” Don’t go to the place where you like, but remain in the place I tell you to stay.” Isaac obeyed the voice of God. Because God said, “Reside in the place I tell you, Remain in this place, I will be with you and bless you. What does this mean? It simply means that God knows where it will be good for you to stay. Many will say all kinds of slogans, That place is greener than this place. And they would go there and only on reaching that place they will realize that the former place was better than the latter place. To put an end to all this God is counseling to you, “Live in this place or country. Then I will be with you and bless you. “God asked him to live in Gerar and also promised him that He would remain with him and bless him. When did God tell him this word? He told him when the country was going through a great famine in the land.

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, since he obeyed the Lord and stayed in the place where he was asked to live, whatever he touched turned gold. Wherever he dug wells water sprang forth. And as a result He cultivated the land and he prospered as a farmer during famine, he made hundred fold good harvest. The Bible says, “The man began to prosper. And continued prospering until he became very prosperous. “He became greater and greater. He grew great and became more and more great. He became famous and popular in the country that God has chosen for him. So if God has instructed you to stay in a particular place you need to stay there to receive His blessings. If God tells you to do this business or that which is suitable for you then you need to do that business only then you will find growth, blessing and an increase in your business. It will be certain. But if you do something of your own, then you will experience destruction. That day God instructed Jonah to go to Nineveh but he went to Tarshish. So he got into a ship that was bound to Tarshish and he quietly went off to sleep. But you all know how much he suffered after that. Only after he got to his sense, he went back to Nineveh the place where God had instructed him to go. That land was blessed and he too was blessed. So you need to live in the place where God tells you to stay. What does that mean? So you always have to ask the Lord for direction whether to go to a particular place or not. Whether to take up a job or not whether to do the business or not, Whether to buy the property or not. You need to take all the decision from God. Many fail to take God’s direction. Suppose you take a job and then you get another job better that the present one. It is better to ask God whether you can take up the new job or not. May God give you the grace to obey the direction of God only then you will be able to enjoy the blessings of God.

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Isaac stayed where God told him to be and he prospered. In fact the country was affected with severe famine. Nature was against him. There was no rain, yet God was with him. The land was parched and completely dry. Since God was His support, springs of water came forth from dry and parched land. Wherever he dug wells, water sprang up and therefore he did farming and reaped a hundred fold of harvest. God told him “I will be with you and bless you. “ Just as he had said, He was with Isaac and so he prospered. It was beyond comprehension. As a result the king and his ambassadors came up to him and said, we know that God is with You. And that your God has blessed you. What does this mean? That, if God remains with you, then you shall be blessed. You and your land in which you live shall be prosperous in such a way that others may see that you are blessed and that God is with you. Your glory shall be revealed and people from across the sea will come to meet you from all round the world. May the Lord grant you that kind of blessing for you today.

Prayer: Lord, we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord you told Isaac to stay in Gerar and promised to be with him and bless him. Since he obeyed you and stayed in that place you exalted him. The man began to prosper and continued prospering until he became very prosperous. He became greater and greater. As per this verse,Lord let all those who arereading this message learn to be like Isaac and obey the Lord and live in the place, in the city or country, and may they increase through your blessings. Let them expand to the left and to the right. And let them receive the blessings of God, and may their families be blessed. Let there be a growth in their progress. Let them gather a lot of leftover from the surplus they get. Help them to live without debts. Let them do so well in life that even great personalities will come and visit them . Let other people be able to look at them and say with their mouth, that they have been blessed by God. May the blessings of God shine upon them and allow them to live a bright future, and live a peaceful life without debts. May they prosper in their life.
In Jesus Name We Pray.
