I have taught the story of Isaac sowing in the midst of an economic famine and reaping a hundredfold return many, many times to audiences around the world.
I’ve spoken, taught and preached how God told Isaac in Genesis 26:2 to “. . . Go not down into Egypt. . .” more times than I can remember.
However, not so long ago, I was listening to a sermon on the subject and it stirred in me.
I wrote down exactly what the Lord was giving me at that very moment, and it is the outline for this message. . . “Seven Reasons To Stay Out Of Egypt.”
At a time when everyone else was following the world system by heading to Egypt to escape the economic hard times . . . God told Isaac to stay.
Unfortunately, way too many believers follow the “wisdom” of the world when it comes to their personal finances as opposed to following the instructions found in the Word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
