Genesis 26, the reason why I am going here, in the Kingdom of God, God plans for His people to be blessed and be able to not only to have enough for sufficiency for themselves but have enough so they can take care of somebody else.  That’s the really good news about God, that He gives you more than enough and it’s called abundance.

You were born again, and you have become part of the richest, wealthiest family on the earth.  Sometimes we look at other people, the Rockefellers or somebody else and think they are rich.  They can’t even hold a candle to you.  I mean, God has made you rich.  The thing is, how do I get to it?  Because, God has of course put it there, but He has made it so that nobody can touch it but you.  That you are the one who can actually be able to benefit from the wealth.

Genesis 26:1-3, 12-14 (KJV) 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: 3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him. 13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: 14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

Now let’s look at Genesis 26:12 in The Message Translation.

Genesis 26:12 (MSG) Isaac planted crops in that land and took in a huge harvest. GOD blessed him.

I will stop there because when you say that, you have to understand that the land was a land of famine.  There was nothing there.  So, here is Isaac and he is sowing in a land where there was no rain or anything. 

So, sometimes what God will do is, He will have you to sow in a time of famine.  It might be that you are a little short in your life or it might be that the things that you are sowing into, God wants to do something with that.  But the point of it is, is that many times, people look at the right conditions for sowing and because they are expecting the perfect conditions, it seems like the perfect conditions never come and so they never sow, at least what God tells them to sow.  As a result of that, they don’t reap that big harvest that I said here, that you are a part of the richest, wealthiest family on earth and they never can tap into that.  So, the only way you are going to tap into the wealth God has for you, is that you have to sow. God made it that way.

Genesis 26:12-14 (MSG) Isaac planted crops in that land and took in a huge harvest. GOD blessed him. 13 The man got richer and richer by the day until he was very wealthy. 14 He accumulated flocks and herds and many, many servants, so much so that the Philistines began to envy him.

This is interesting because God didn’t stop it, seemed, blessing him until the world around him started envying him and they told him he had to leave the county.  My point is that God can make it so that you, the Church, would be the envy of the world.  I really believe that’s the way God wants it.  I really believe that’s the plan that God has for our lives. 

When you are born again, you become part of the richest, the wealthiest family ever known to mankind.  You need to write that down and say, when I became born again, I became a part of the richest, the wealthiest family ever known to mankind, part of the richest, the wealthiest family ever known to mankind.  Say it. When I became born again, I became part of the richest, the wealthiest family ever known to mankind.  The only difference is now you have to learn how to tap into it.

Now if you look at Isaac, he had to sow and the same down through the descendants of Abraham, they had to sow, and they increased more and more.  If you come into the New Testament and see how Jesus operated, when they didn’t have enough food to feed the multitudes, there as a little boy with five loaves of bread and two fish and notice he sowed it.  The same has happened with me. I found out that giving is how all the things I have needed and dreamed and desired came by my sowing seed. It’s how our Kingdom works, seed time and harvest.  I look at how I have increased more and more, and it is a direct result of me putting the spiritual law of seed time and harvest to work and continued to sow.  Now I am out of debt and owe no man anything and God has provided us two debt free houses filled with all good things, debt free and two debt free cars and we are increasing more and more.  The spiritual law of sowing and reaping work but you have to put it to work and continue to sow seed.

So, Isaac became richer and richer by the day as he continued to sow.  Paul, in the New Testament brings that out in the New Testament.

Philippians 4:15-16 (KJV) Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

Here we see the Philippians continued to sow into Paul’s life and ministry.  The Philippian church started out very poor, but they ended up a very, very wealthy church.

Philippians 4:17 (KJV) Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

By sowing, not only do they get increase more and more but they were also helping Paul bring people into the Kingdom of God.  Our sowing into a ministry, we will be accounted for every person brought into the Kingdom by the ministry and every soul healed and delivered.

Philippians 4:18 (KJV) But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

I have sown many sacrifice seeds but if you look at my life today, my husband and I have only increased more and more financially as well as increased in our health with over 40 plus years without doctors, medication and hospital. 

Your continued seed sowing not only will produce financial increase but also it produces divine health.  That’s what many people need today is good health and so this is another way you increase by your sowing.

Philippians 4:19 (KJV) But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

I can say that is absolutely correct; because that is what God has done and continues to do for me today.

I am telling you today, God increases you more and more because you are part of the richest, the wealthiest family on the earth; but the way you tap into your wealth in the family is mainly through your giving.
