In Genesis 26, we see Isaac experiencing similar experiences that his father, Abraham faced. He also repeats some of the same sins as his father. Isaac was met with opposition from his neighbors who felt threatened by Isaac’s riches and power that grew as God continued to bless.
Yet, the promise to Abraham was reaffirmed to Isaac with these beautiful words: “And the LORD appeared to him the same night and said, ‘I am the God of Abraham your father. Fear not, for I am with you and will bless you and multiply your offspring for my servant Abraham’s sake.’”
God’s word was clear. No matter how many mistakes Isaac made, God’s purpose would be fulfilled. And at the end of the chapter, even Isaac’s opponents had to admit that God was with him.
