14. You Are Blessed

blessed-thumbGenesis 26:24 NKJV And the LORD appeared to him the same night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham’s sake.”

God is with us. What and amazing reality. The Lord God appeared to Isaac and told him that He was with him. I’m sure that simple message cast all fear in Isaac’s mind aside. The knowledge that God is with you eliminates any potential fear because of his awesome presence.

“But, what about me”, you may ask. If you’ve been born again, God wants you to know that He is with you too. In Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah prophesied about a the virgin birth. He said the Son born would be called Immanuel, God with us. WOW! God with us. Jesus was and is the fulfillment of that Scripture (Matthew 1:23). Jesus is God with us and He is with us by His Spirit always (John 14:26). Since God is with us we have nothing to fear. FEAR NOT

God has blessed us. God’s blessing upon Isaac meant that no curse could cling to him and no problematic neighbors could keep him from the promises of God. Isaac was blessed by God because of the covenant Abraham had with God. Galatians 3:29 tells us that if we are Christ’s than we can receive the same blessing Isaac received which stemmed from the promise that God gave Abraham. Since God has blessed us, no curse can cling to us. So FEAR NOT.

Galatians 3:29 NKJV And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed,
and heirs according to the promise.
