Flourishing Through Famine 2!
Gen 26:1 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. 2 And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
Gen 26:18 Now Isaac again dug [and reopened] the wells of water which had been dug in the days of Abraham his father, because the Philistines had filled them up [with dirt] after the death of Abraham; and he gave the wells the same names that his father had given them.
Gen 13:17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. 18 Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the Lord.
The First realm of the Supernatural is the realm of Faith exemplified perfectly by Abraham. As a result of his unwavering faith in God, he obtained the promises of God, walked in His presence and prospered through the time of famine! Lot, his nephew was pictured in contrast with Abraham who walked by sight even though for a good while, he was under the covering of his uncle and he too prospered. But his choices were poor as he depended on himself and ended up losing everything!
Isaac on the other hand walked in the faith of his father Abraham but was also sensitive to the intervention of God not to go to Egypt, redug the wells of his father and prospered reaping a 100 fold harvest in the process. He moved from the faith realm into the anointing realm symbolized by the digging of the wells! The Anointing realm is triggered through our sowing into it in faith! The widow at Zarepath sowed her last flour and oil into this realm by giving the bread to Elijah and she was fed unceasingly when she experienced a supernatural replenishment of her supply.
When you walk in the Faith realm and sow into the realm of the anointing, you are going to experience the miracle of unceasing supply from God! Have an exciting journey with the Lord!
