Liquid Isaac’s Wells
Genesis 26:1-22, 26-31
Next, we discover Isaac venturing out on his own. In Genesis 26, we find out that Isaac moved to a region where he reclaimed the wells that had belonged to his father, Abraham. For years no one had cared about the wells until someone reopened them, then everyone started fighting over them. Instead of fighting, Isaac showed he trusted God and decided to give away the wells to make peace. Isaac walked away from what was rightfully his. God continued to show faithfulness to Isaac. Eventually, the people saw that God had Isaac’s back. They backed away and left Isaac in peace.
I can trust God no matter what.
Trust God no matter what.
When we read through the stories found in the Bible, we see how the writers experienced God as faithful throughout all sorts of circumstances. We pray this simple truth can be a continual reminder to kids that God’s faithfulness continues today. We can trust God no matter what. Even if we’re not quite sure what’s happening in our lives, we can trust God to help us through it.
Message to Parents
Trusting God sometimes feels like a mind game. Have you ever worried so much that when the problem was over you somehow, even secretly, gave credit to your worry? As if it wouldn’t have happened in your favor if you didn’t worry. I mean, wouldn’t NOT worrying seem, I don’t know, cocky or prideful? It’s a sad place to be, and maybe it’s just me who does that. In the end, my heart truly knows it was God who saw me through. It was God who gave me or someone else the talents or gifts to make it possible. It was God every time, who calmed my anxious heart. Why? Why do we have such a tough time seeking God first and trusting Him to see our problem through? Even in that worry, we can rest assured that God will see His plan into action, and doesn’t he tell us NOT to worry anyway? He does. In Matthew 6, verses 25 through 34, Jesus, Himself, tells us not to worry about or run after even the small things, like food, drink, and clothing. He provides for the smallest of creatures, yet He tells us, that we are more valuable than any other creation. How much more would He provide such things for us? It’s a beautiful truth. So let’s trust God with all our might. He’s so good for the outcome! Be encouraged, friends! For more, read or listen to Max Lucado’s encouragement. This man has such a way with words.
