REVEALED WORD TODAY
READ: GENESIS 26:14-22
14 He had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him. 15 So all the wells that his father’s servants had dug in the time of his father Abraham, the Philistines stopped up, filling them with earth.
16 Then Abimelek said to Isaac, “Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us.”
17 So Isaac moved away from there and encamped in the Valley of Gerar, where he settled. 18 Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them.
19 Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there. 20 But the herders of Gerar quarreled with those of Isaac and said, “The water is ours!” So he named the well Esek,[a] because they disputed with him. 21 Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah.[b] 22 He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth,[c] saying, “Now the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”
Things may not last as a result of several factors. Pay attention to the following factors irrespective of what you are doing in life.
i. Satanic interruptions (Closing of the wells) – Gen. 26:14
ii. Not counting the cost.
iii. Wrong and faulty foundation
iv. Disobedience / Sin
v. Use of fake materials
PRAYER: Oh Lord, give me grace to be committed to the end so as to have the the desired results.
