Try And Try Again

Key Verse

“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” (Genesis 26:18).

Text — Genesis 26: 16-22


Robert Bruce was crowned king of Scotland on March 27th in 1306. He was however deposed in 1307 by king Edward of England. Bruce was forced to flee to the little island of Rathlin. While there, he continued to recruit followers and in less than two years, he liberated Scotland from the British. He again defeated the British army in a popular battle of Bennockburn which led to the independence of Scotland in 1328. His Popular quotation was, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again.”

Our text focuses on the self-determination of Isaac despite all odds in his way to progress. He dug the wells, again and again. The wells sprang up water but the Philistines continued to strive with him to possess them. Through persistence, he dug another which was not striven for and named it Rehoboth. To climb through the ladder of success in life, one requires perseverance and determination for there will be difficulties in your way. The breakthrough will come through diligence, prayer and faith in God.


The breakthrough will come


Defeat is a signal to try harder.

Prayer for today

Father, help me to persevere to success.
