Good Morning Beloved, Welcome to Open Heavens devotional today. Thank you for joining us.
Do you know the dimension of God that is “The God of Isaac?” This dimension shows us God as the God that brings about laughter and multiplication. We see God’s mighty work of multiplication upon Isaac’s life.
OPEN HEAVEN 17 MAY 2022
God of Isaac is the God of laughter (Genesis 21:1-7). He is not just the God of laughter, but also the God of multiplication.
Our Bible reading today tells us how God asked Abraham to offer Isaac as a sacrifice and how he (Abraham) was about to do so before God stopped him.
God later on blessed Abraham: “in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. Genesis 22:17”

How does He multiply? In Genesis 26:12-14 , the Bible tells us that when Isaac sowed, in the same year, he had a hundredfold return. This therefore means that the God of Isaac is the God of a hundredfold returns.
When you look at the last promise in Genesis 22:17, you see God saying that Abrahams seed will possess the gate of his enemies. In those days, the gate was the centre of a city’s economy.
This means that when the God of Isaac is your God, you will become so prosperous that whether nations like you or not, they would have to do whatever you say.

It is unfortunate however, that many Christians are not this prosperous and this is because they are not like Isaac. When Abraham was going to offer a sacrifice to God, Isaac asked his father, I can see the wood, I can see the fire, where is the animal to be sacrificed? (Genesis 22:7).
Abraham said God would provide the lamb. The moment Abraham started binding him, lsaac knew he was the sacrifice. Abraham bound him and laid him on the wood, yet Isaac cooperated all the way.

If he had decided to struggle just a little, he would have won because there is no way a man who is over a hundred years old can hold a teenager down. However, Isaac was ready to give himself as a sacrifice to the Most High God.
Only those who can sacrifice their all can enjoy the kind of multiplication that the God of Isaac gives. Solomon sacrificed what no man ever did and God blessed him more than every other man.
Sow a seed that will really cost you – a sacrificial offering. If you want to be so prosperous that you will control the economies and politics of nations, then nothing must be too big for you to give to God.
