Genesis 26:1,12 & 13
There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.
Then Isaac sowed in that 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;
Here we are living through a modern day expression of "famine".
Interestingly, one of the word picture meanings behind famine is: trembling inside the house (body).
This trembling inside, at its zenith, manifests in verbal and physical violence towards others.
Isaac found himself in the a famine and in the midst of it God caused him to prosper, continue prospering until he became very prosperous.
The word picture behind prosper, which in Hebrew is gadal, is: to lift up a way of life that teaches heart knowledge.
Whilst Isaac was blessed materially in the midst of famine, I believe God's agenda was more focussed on lifting up Isaac as an example of a life that teaches heart knowledge.
The first occurrence of this word gadal in Scripture is in Genesis 12:2 where God announces His blessing over Abraham, Isaac's father:
I will make you a great (gadal) nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great (gadal) ;
And you shall be a blessing.
Given that Abraham is our father in the faith, could it be that God is calling us to step into this "generational" blessing in the midst of this worldwide famine (trembling inside the house) to be a people who are an example of a life that teaches heart knowledge?
