Genesis 26:26-29

God’s Covenant Promise Brings Blessing and Favor With Others

Transcript

Genesis 26:26-29 then Abimelech came to him from Garar with his advisor Ahuzzath and Phicol the commander of his army Isaac said to them why have you come to me since you hate me and have sent me away from you they said we see plainly that the LORD has been with you so we said let there now be an oath between us even between you and us and let us make a covenant with you that you will do us no harm just as we have not touched you and have done to you nothing but good and have sent you away in peace you are now the blessed of the Lord and what we see here Isaac had lied to Abimelech and that caused Abimelech to hate Isaac but here’s an incredible thing Isaac had a covenant with God and the verses before that verses 24 and 25 of Genesis 26 God had repeated this covenant promise to Isaac Isaac embraced that covenent and do you know that covenant causes favor with people this covenant that Isaac had with God caused Isaac to prosper and reap 100 fold Abimelech saw Isaac’s prosperity and he wanted what Isaac had and so he said let’s make a covenant with the blessed man that we might enjoy that blessing with God ourselves and that’s exactly what happened they came to Isaac and here’s the point covenant with God causes favor even with enemies there’s another proverb that says when a man’s ways please the LORD it causes even his enemies to be at peace with you and God will even cause enemies to be at peace with you when you walk in God’s covenant so when you walk in God’s covenant that you have by the blood of Messiah Yeshua God will give you favor with enemies with people all around you it’ll happen in business it’ll happen in relationships it’ll happen in marriage it’ll happen with your children with your parents in every area of life it reminds me of a story that occurred in the life of a friend of mine Sam and Linda a couple that I’ve gotten to know quite well in business and many many years ago Sam had an experience in a company that he founded where he was actually kicked out of his own company by the board of directors of that company and it was a long story as to how it came to that as he driving on a trip actually from Dallas to San Antonio Texas He always used to joke about the encounter on the road to San Antonio like Paul had an encounter on the road to Damascus as he and his family were driving to San Antonio the LORD spoke to him and he had an encounter with the LORD happened actually through a phone call as well that somebody called him and shared something with him and it was the word of the LORD and the word of the LORD was Go and simply share with the board of directors that you don’t need to have any great position you don’t need to have any great authority or ownership in a company all that you request is to be able to proclaim the sovereignty of the LORD Jesus Christ in this company and that if they will allow you to do that any conflict will be solved and God will give you favor the most amazing thing is Sam went and did exactly that just appealed to the board of directors and said I don’t need to have a great position or be the president or the C.E.O. of this company all I’m requesting is that you just allow me to proclaim that Jesus Christ is the LORD and proclaim His sovereignty in this company and that’s my request the covenant that my friend Sam had with God created favor with the board of directors and something nobody expected nobody expected that they would embrace Sam but you know they did they brought him back into the company gave him a position on the board of directors again and allowed him to declare the name of the LORD in that company it was an amazing amazing story covenant will give you favor in business covenant will give you favor with boards of directors covenant will give you favor with Kings and presidents covenant will give you favor with your boss at work today with your vendors with your suppliers with people that you deal with in business today if you’ll recognize the covenant that you have by the blood of Yeshua Ha Mashiach that covenant creates favor just like Isaac had favor with someone he had lied to someone who had kicked him out wanted him to leave and because the prosperity of God came so strongly on Isaac’s life because of covenant his own enemies came and wanted to make a covenant of peace with him I believe that God wants to do the same for you today so let’s just pray Father I pray today for my brother for my sister watching this little devotional today for great favor LORD I release an anointing of favor over the life of each person I just release an anointing of favor over your life today that you would have favor with everybody you come in contact with that favor would mean people would receive you people would grant you opportunities people would want you around people would wait for you and that the promises God has made to you He will bring to pass in your life this day so Father I pray for great favor because of the covenant we have with you in the life of each person today in the mighty name of Yeshua I pray Amen
