Genesis 26:12”Now Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. And the LORD blessed him”

You know what, I am just reminded of the umpteen emails and text messages that I receive regularly informing me that my mobile number has won the lottery and I can collect crores of rupees by just submitting my personal details to some moron.  Imagine!  Greed is the cause for disaster, people today want to earn enormous amount of money by hook or by crook and that’s exactly why such crooks thrive by conning others.  Self-indulgence highlights the perils to make money at any cost.  The one method through which you can get blessed immeasurably is by staying with God, in God and obeying Him one hundred percent.  Is anybody listening to me?  Stop getting fooled.

In the above scripture, we read about Isaac, son of Abraham, who obeyed God by staying in Gerar, the place shown by God and thereby even while there was famine in the land, God blessed Isaac to reap hundredfold because of his obedience.  This kind of blessing is what you call as, ‘God preparing a table for you in the presence of your enemies’ (Psalm 23:5)  You don’t have to do anything to the enemies who hurt and harass you, just obey God, He will take care of the situation.  I know of few women who keep producing babies because they wanted to show off to their mother-in-law that they are blessed hundredfold and One-Up on her.  Believe me, there are educated women among us who  resort to such cheap tricks to settle scores.   Isaac though surrounded by enemies on all sides trusted God to see him through.

I want to add few more points here for financial blessings: tithing and money management.  If you have not been tithing and giving your offerings to God then we cannot claim the financial blessings that God has promised us.  The next thing is reckless spending,  God cannot bless butter fingers that cannot hold money.    ‘Nil payment due’ does not happen overnight, you got to strive hard and say ‘no’ to unwanted stuff.  You don’t have to buy commodities just because there is an offer.  Most of the ‘fantastic offer’ labels are eye-wash!
