Genesis 26:6 “And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:”
Genesis 26:12 “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.”
God instructed Isaac to stay back in Gerar and he obeyed. I also want to believe that God instructed him to sow and taught him what to do.
One of the things that causes famine is lack of water. The land had insufficient supply of water so nothing could grow. There was simply no way you’ll sow in the land and things will germinate but Isaac did and he had a hundredfold return on investment.
God will not break his law of agriculture so he had to give Isaac a strategy to combat the famine. Friend, in famine one thing you need is a strategy. Divine strategy is what terminates famine.
How was it possible for Isaac to sow and get such bountiful harvest? The answer is not far-fetched. Bible scholars believed the strategy God taught him was irrigation. I subscribed to this principle too. How do I know?
Genesis 26:18 “And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.”
Genesis 26:19 “And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.”
The question is; what was Isaac doing with wells? He was simply irrigating the land unknown to the Philistines. The irrigation strategy was first used by God Himself before it rained on earth.
Genesis 2:5 “And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.”
Genesis 2:6 “But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.”
