    The 45th sermon in our series on Genesis and in this sermon we see Isaac model faithfulness and we see God bless him for it.

    The Struggles of Faith (Genesis Pt. 45) Text: Genesis 26:18-35 By: Ken McKinley (Read Text) Now if you remember last time, we looked at Isaac and how God told him to not go to Egypt, even though there was a famine in the land.

    Right at the moment that Isaac is about to celebrate his success by discovering water on the well, the Philistine snatched his rights and took over the same well by force. By the way, it is the third time that they deliberately did it. Will Isaac give up?

    NEVER GIVE UP: KEEP DIGGING THE WELLS Genesis 26:12-32 Crab Mentality! What do these words mean? It is a way of thinking best described by the phrase, "if I can't have it, neither can you.

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Mar 16, 2016

    Just because you are in the Promised Land or under the promises of God does not mean that you will not encounter problems. Isaac was in the promised land yet he was harassed and beset with problems. Yet despite all, God will bring you out.

    Abraham left Isaac an inheritance, the Philistines robbed him of that inheritance. Isaac took the proper steps to reclaim what was rightfully his. There is a great lesson for us in this text as well.

    we as saints need to re-dig the wells of our fathers. We have grown up with poor performing wells and we believe it is normal. This message was to remind us that there is more power available than we are tapped into. we need to repair the wells!

    As Christians, there are some things that God used in the generations before us and it's high time we dig afresh some of these wells and allow God to provide 'a well of springing water'.

  • In Times Of Famine

    Contributed by Tom Papez on Nov 19, 2013

    Sometimes times of famine hits nations, cities and families. Though anything we have experienced in USA in recent days appears miniscule in comparison to history, the time is always coming for difficult financial times.

    IN TIMES OF FAMINE Genesis 26 begins with the pronouncement “Now there was famine in the land besides the previous famine that occurred in the days of Abraham.” The second verse goes on to say, “The Lord appeared to Isaac and said, ‘Do not go down to Egypt; live in the more

  • Studies In Genesis: Chapter 26 Series

    Contributed by Edward Hardee on Oct 16, 2011

    This is a study of the book of Genesis. Genesis and Revelation are two of the most disputed books in the Bible. The premise of this study is the foundation of creation.

    Note: When doing a study on a book in the Bible you use a lot of resources. The major influence for me on this study of Genesis is The Genesis Record by Henry Morris. Genesis 26 1. And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And more
