Isaac, the son of Abraham, was staying in the land of the Philistines in Gerar when a famine struck the land.  God appeared to Isaac in a dream and told him not to go to Egypt, but to stay right there in Gerar, the very land where the famine was.  Sometimes, God chooses to bless us not by delivering us from our troubles, but by prospering us right in the midst of our storm.  So Isaac stayed in Gerar, and God blessed him with so many flocks, herds, and servants that the Philistines became envious of him.  In fact, the Philistines were so jealous of Isaac, that they put rocks and dirt into the wells that Abraham had dug, stopping them up.  The king of the Philistines, Abimelech, told Isaac to leave.    Isaac did not fight with Abimelech.  Instead, he moved to the valley of Gerar and dug more wells, naming them the same names that his father, Abraham, had named  his wells.  But  the Philistines opposed him there as well, so Isaac left again.  He called that place Esek because the Philistines fought him there.  He found more water and dug yet more wells, but the Philistines persecuted him over those wells, so he left the second time.  He called that place Sitnah, bacause he had faced opposition and persecution.  But, the third time, Isaac dug more wells and the Philistines did not strive with him.  He called this place Rehoboth, because God made room for him.  Have you ever found yourself being chased out of the very place God told you was yours?  Have you ever been persecuted by the enemy, not because you were disobedient, but  because you were doing exactly what God told you to do?  In this powerful and timely message by Evangelist Sean Pinder, you will be encouraged not to give up.  Don't let the enemy get you down.  Just keep on digging, because God is about to make room for you.
