When famine struck the land in which he was living, Isaac faced a choice: to go down to Egypt where there were greener pastures or to choose to trust in God’s word to him, even though it didn’t seem to make sense in the natural. It was a matter of life and death but Isaac made the right choice. Isaac has much to teach us about how we can position ourselves for harvest even in a land of famine – and these are the principles that this sermon unpacks.
The sermon is also a specific challenge to One Church at a critical point in our church’s history. It reminds the church that God’s perfect will for us will not just happen automatically – that we each have an active part to play if we want to realise God’s amazing destiny for us.
