    Freedom From Bondage

    Is there something that is preventing you from becoming everything that God created you to be? Are your sinful habits holding you back from true joy and fulfillment? The enemy can keep you captive with his sinful enticements and God's spiritual armor can help you battle the enemy's temptations. Through God's grace you can find freedom from bondage and experience the abundant life God has for you.

    What does it mean to Work Out Your Salvation?

    I think a lot of believers don't know what it means to work out your own salvation. Many, I've come to realize think this means that salvation comes by works and not of free gift of grace through Jesus Christ. So, let's study this. I found a great little bible study on this passage below.

    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

The Hundredfold Blessing…despite The Conditions

Discussion in 'Counseling' started by anthony, Aug 22, 2007.

    Look at verse 12 of Genesis 26. Something amazing happened: “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him.”
    Isaac took a step of faith because God was with him, and he sowed in a land struck with famine.
    Think about it! Isaac did the unnatural. He sowed when the land was not ready for the seed, yet because the Lord had said to him earlier, “I am with you and I will bless you,” he sowed in spite of the conditions that he faced.
    Isaac sowed in faith—faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. As a result, he received a hundredfold the same year!
    This is truly an amazing miracle. Isaac sowed in a land struck with famine, yet he received a hundredfold return from the land that was not supposed to produce, and he received it all the same year, all because God said, “I am with you and I will bless you.” That is the key!
    The Scriptures say that God blessed Isaac in spite of the conditions, and He blessed him in spite of his enemies. Genesis 26:13-14 tells us, “And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.”
    Isaac had enemies like you and I have enemies, yet because the Lord was with him, God blessed Isaac in spite of his foes. Genesis 26:15 says, “For all the wells which his father’s servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.”
    Later we find that because of Isaac’s obedience to the Lord, the Word of God says, “And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father” (26:18). God blessed him again by causing the wells to spring with water once more.
    Verse 19 tells us, “And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.” God will restore what the enemies have destroyed! Even though Isaac’s enemies had filled the wells with dirt, God restored the well that belonged to him because of his obedience.
    A land struck with famine, no rain, wells filled with dirt, no life—yet one man heard God say, “I am with you and I will bless you.” Isaac believed the word of the Lord and sowed seed in conditions that were not normal for seed sowing.
    In spite of all that, God blessed him and gave him a harvest greater than he could imagine!
