– Walking In Financial Fortune - Abraham's Example

The Bibles tells us to look for examples to follow.
Isaiah 51:2
“Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

Hebrew 6:12 -That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Demonstrated Followership by doing the same works as set by our example
John 8:39 .. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

So far we have discovered that Abraham was:
  1. A spiritual man (Gen.12: 1-3, I Cor.2: 14, Rev.1: 10)
  2. Abraham upheld financial integrity and would not receive bribe. (Gen. 14:21-23)
  3. Abraham had prosperity mentality (Gen. 13:14-15, Pr. 23:7)
  4. Abraham was a man of faith (Rom 4:3, Rom 4:20, Heb 11:6 & Jas 1:6-8)
  5. Abraham depended on God’s guidance (Gen 12:1, Isaiah 48:17, Isaiah 48:21, Ps 23:1-6)
  6. Abraham was liberal (generous) (Gen.13: 5-13, 18:1-10, Pr. 11:24-25)
  7. Abraham was a tither (Gen. 14:19-20, Heb. 7:1-10)

Today, we look at three more facts about Abraham:
  1. Abraham was a hard worker Gen.13: 1-2, 26:18
    Genesis 13: 2 -
    And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
    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.

  2. Abraham was an employer (and He trained his servants) (318 trained)
    Genesis 14:14  And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan
  3. Abraham was a man of praise Rms. 4:20-12)
    Romans 4:20 -
    He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    God blesses you to be a blessing
    Genesis 12:2 - 3
    2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
    3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
