13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
15 For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.
16 And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we.
Matthew 5:6 6 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
He also became the object of hostility and faced the wrath of the local leader. The Philistines destroyed the wells which Isaac inherited from his father Abraham. He was robbed, threatened and sent out by Abimelech, king of the Philistines, because he became a stronger man, and they envied him. Isaac understood and experienced God as protector and provider. He put all his trust in God. If God says you are blessed, you are blessed. No matter what trials and tribulations are coming your way, he still blesses you through it all. God will connect to you and prosper you as he promised Abraham. God is doing a work in those whose heart is perfect towards him and he will draw close to you. Let your light shine so that men will see your good works and glorify God.
