Bible Reading: Genesis 27
Memory Verse: Genesis 27: 10
“Then take it to your father to eat, so that he may give you his blessings before he dies.”
Good morning ladies and gentlemen! How are you all doing? Well, I am great. I hope you are doing well! Another week is before us. I am excited once again to embark on another journey through a book in Genesis. This week, we are looking at Genesis 27. This chapter is a very interesting one. I can’t wait unearth some of the wonderful lessons in this chapter. Let us get straight into today’s message.
When we read Genesis 27, we realize that Isaac called Esau and told him to get game, prepare it; in exchange for his blessing. The first time I read the whole chapter, I became angry at Rebekah. I wondered why she had a favourite? I wondered why she would do such a thing to her first-born son? Well, the Holy Spirt helped me to realize that it was all part of God’s plan for Jacob.
Jacob was chosen by God; even before he was born. He didn’t know that he was chosen by God. His mother’s schemes were all part of God’s plan for him to be blessed by his father. As we go on in the Bible, we see that Jacob was the best person to be chosen by God. He had the strength, the qualities and wisdom. God knows all our capabilities; He chooses us for the appropriate things, at the appropriate time. Well, this discussion is now moving in another direction. We would look at this soon.
God wants me to tell you that you should be like Jacob. You should be at ease, enjoying your life. You should not worry about all the hustle and bustle going on in the world. like Jacob, he was somewhere probably thinking about the littlest of things, happy and content. God said if He has promised you something, it will come to pass. Amen! Your problem is not to worry or think about how He is going to do it. Instead, you should just be happy; full of joy and continue to trust Him. It will come to pass.
God said to tell you to listen and obey. Like Jacob, whatever his mother instructed him to do, he did it. Yes, he had fears and doubts, but he still accomplished everything he was told to do. In this context, Rebekah is a representation of God. God does all the moves, all the planning, all the scheming. All we have to do is listen to His instructions and follow them. We may have fears, but we must never lest our fears and doubts override God's will.
God wants me to tell you that your season is coming soon! You may be in a situation where God has promised you something; you see the people around you doing way better than you. Achieving more things than you! God said to tell you that your season is coming! He has not left your side! He sees everything and knows what you are going through. He sees how you feel. Just keep on trusting and seeking Him diligently. Your season will bear more fruit than you could have imagined.
Finally, God wants me to let you know that the enemy cannot steal your promise or your destiny. He may try. He may put measures in place. He may attack you for it. Just like Rebekah listening in the corner to Isaac and Esau’s conversation; so is the Lord planning something big for you and expose all the works of the enemy. It’s time to stop looking outside and feeling sorry for yourself. The time has come to rejoice and be thankful to God! The time is coming and its coming really soon. Hallelujah!
God can even cause the enemy to hand over your promise; without him (the enemy) knowing. God has a great sense of humour. At the end of it all, you would be laughing at the wondrous and mind-blowing ways you received your promise. He can cause confusion in the camp of the enemy or even lead the enemy's camp to scheme in your favour. Just relax and keep looking to God. The time is coming soon! Hallelujah!
The prayer below is for anyone who is tired of living an unfulfilling life; full of scheming against others and stealing from others. There’s restoration and freedom waiting for you in God’s kingdom. Kindly say this short prayer with all sincerity to join God’s family; to live a fulfilling and joyous life.
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board. You can now be exempted from the wrath of the enemy and of God. Not only do you experience this, but your whole family as well. Wow! Isn’t the God you serve so cool? He is. Not only do you enjoy this, but you enjoy other blessings God has in store for His children.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out. Hallelujah!
Have a wonderful day and let God inspire you!
