Prayer: Generating Kingdom Wealth for God’s Purposes

Activating the Isaac Promise into Your Business

Despite today’s economic rollercoaster, Christian businessmen and women can find strong scriptural precedent in Genesis 26:1-33 for protection from the world’s financial system.  In Genesis 26 Isaac (the story’s main character and the son of Abraham) lived in a region rifled with famine, yet he prospered, and prospered greatly.  The business townspeople became jealous of Isaac’s immunity to the economic crisis and rejected him.  Because Isaac followed God in every aspect of His personal life and business life, the community’s rejection did not harm Isaac, but shifted him into another round of financial gain.

As we grow in worshipping the Father and Jesus during our workday, we will also grow in God’s protection from our shaky economic system.  There are several promises that you can believe and proclaim for you, your business, and your business community:

Personal instruction from God– “There was a famine in the land…Then the Lord appeared to [Isaac] and said:  ‘Do not go to Egypt; dwell in the land of which I shall tell you…and I will be with you and bless you…”  Gen. 26:1-3 

Divine protection– “[The king] charged all his people, saying, “He who touches [Isaac] or his wife shall surely be put to death.'”  Gen. 26:1

Prosperity regardless of the present-day economy– “Then Isaac sowed in the land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him.  The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous.”  Gen.26:12-13

Multiple revenue sources with ample administrative help– “For he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants…”  Gen. 26:14

Acquire “wells of provision” for your family and others– “And Isaac dug again the wells of water which they had dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham…And he…dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it.  So he called its name Rehoboth, because he said, ‘For now the Lord has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.'”  Gen. 26:18,22

Enemies desire peace with you– “Then [the king] came to him … And Isaac said to them, ‘Why have you come to me, since you hate me and have sent me away from you?’ But they said, ‘We have certainly seen that the Lord is with you.  So [Isaac’s enemies]  said, Let there now be an oath between us, between you and us; and let us make a covenant with you.'”  Gen. 26:26-28                 by Sharon Gonzales
