Sometimes we feel the urge to do something, and we don’t know why, if one follows one’s head it might sound and seem the total wrong thing to do, the question is, could God be behind the thing that doesn’t seem reasonable?
Only one person could answer that, and that is the person doing the thing. Currently reading about Jacob in the Book of Genesis, and if you are a scholar of the Bible, you obviously know the story of Jacob and his brother Esau, for a long second one could be tempted to think that Jacob did his brother wrong.
What we have to realize is, Esau didn’t have a mind towards God, but Jacob did. His mum Rebekah recognized this and made sure that the spiritual heritage of Abraham continued, God used her to do what she did that enabled Jacob to be blessed by Isaac as the firstborn.
The question would be why didn’t God just make Jacob come of his mother’s womb first, well I agree with you, But God is God all by Himself, He is the most fabulous chess ever, He is the Universal Champion of chess before the game started on earth. God will always win with a checkmate.
God even plays our enemies like a game of chess, when the haters set traps and snares for God’s children am sure God finds it so funny.
Going back to Jacob, what would have happened if Jacob didn’t wrestle until the break of day, the answer is, we would have no Israel today.
Israel and its people belong to God,(in as much as some of them don’t recognize Jesus as the Messiah their eyes would be open one day). That’s why Israel can never be Harmed, by no other Country, it’s God’s property.
Sometimes people of this world don’t know God and don’t want Him, by it’s the Kingdom of darkness that has covered their eyes, they have eyes, but the can’t SEE, ears by they can’t HEAR.
I always like to observe people, and most people are nice, but most of these nice people still can’t SEE nor HEAR the things of the Spirit, as the Bible rightly puts it, things of the Spirit of God are foolishness to the world.
God, knows that it’s the work of Satan, the devil, and that is why God has mercy on them. We see this in the story of Jonah, in the last chapter and Verse 11 of the book of Jonah, God put this way ” they cannot discern between their right hand and their left.
God is Love, and He would do whatever it takes so that people do not perish.
In closing in the Book of John 3:8, NIV: “The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.'”
Apostle Paul said I become all things to all people that I might win some.
In the life of Jacob, why he didn’t come out of the womb as the firstborn, why was he tricked into marrying Leah before Rachel?
Well, Jacob had 12 Children, 12 is the number of Government, Israel has 12 tribes. Things that don’t make sense of the life of a believer God is often behind it all.
Jacob labored 14 years before he could have the love of his life, also there is 14 generations from Abraham to King David, and fourteen from David’s time to the Babylonian exile and fourteen from the Babylonian exile to the Messiah.
1 + 4 = 5, and 5 is the number of GRACE.
If we are walking with God,(from the Heart) He might seldom tell us to do things that don’t make sense, and we don’t understand.
ONE THING I KNOW IS OUR GOD REIGNS …JESUS REIGNS, THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US REIGNS.
Every so often we feel the LOVE God in our heart and just want to hug Him, Amen.
Until Next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
