Genesis  Pt18


We finished our study in Genesis this past Sunday. This study has helped me to grow so much .  The last study in this series is called Digging Wells. 

Digging Wells

Genesis 12:10-13, Genesis 26:1-8,17-25

Nobody gets through this life without testing. 

” God tests us to bring out the best I us. Satan tests us to bring out the worst in us-Warren Weirsbe.

Perseverance is kin to the Christian experience. 

John 16:33 ” I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Faithfulness to God will be rewarded. 

Galatians 4:28 Now you, brothers and sisters, like Issac, are children of promise. 

John 4:10 Jesus answered her,  “if you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

Psalm 90:1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.

Summary Abraham and Iisac were both me who faced the trials of faith and believing God ; we know their names and their story because of their faith. In our Christian life, through success and failure.., we can continue to seek Jesus . Like Issac continued to seek the promise by digging wells during opposition, so we can seek after Jesus who gives the water that never runs dry regardless of any obstacles.

  1. Testing. I used to envy people who died young or babies who had died at birth. Job said that too. Although I guess memories of sexual abuse are not a test from God. It is just something traumatic that happened and you have to deal with it. Satan is the one behind any kind of abuse. Still, whether to forgive the abuser can be a test.

    Testing. Like when someone hurts you but by the grace of God you forgive. Someone yells at you, and you don’t yell back. You are broke, but you don’t steal. You are angry at God, but you decided he is the only place to go. Right? That is testing?

    Yes everything in life is a test to see if we can pass it and move to the next level.
