A Blessing is a Blessing–Even when we make commitments in error, we need to honor them. Rebekah and Jacob plotted and executed a plan to get Isaac’s blessing for Jacob and his lineage, It was a great blessing. Isaac tried to bless Esau, knowing that was not God’s choice; nor, that Esau was in any way interested in following God’s plan. The common theme was that despite each ones effort to do things their way, God’s blessing ended up on God’s choice…Go Figure!
God will accomplish his plan–He looks to us to submit and honor him with our lives so that he can use us to bless others and change lives. When we try to run independent of him, he will ultimately accomplish his plan but we will be the ones in chaos and missing his blessing for our lives. Please allow him to use you. Do as he leads and trust him with everything within you–You will be glad you did!!!
God Bless You
21 Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Come near so I can touch you, my son, to know whether you really are my son Esau or not.”
22 Jacob went close to his father Isaac, who touched him and said, “The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau.” 23 He did not recognize him, for his hands were hairy like those of his brother Esau; so he proceeded to bless him. 24 “Are you really my son Esau?” he asked.
“I am,” he replied.
25 Then he said, “My son, bring me some of your game to eat, so that I may give you my blessing.”
Jacob brought it to him and he ate; and he brought some wine and he drank. 26 Then his father Isaac said to him, “Come here, my son, and kiss me.”
27 So he went to him and kissed him. When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes, he blessed him and said,
“Ah, the smell of my son
is like the smell of a field
that the Lord has blessed.
28 May God give you heaven’s dew
and earth’s richness—
an abundance of grain and new wine.
29 May nations serve you
and peoples bow down to you.
Be lord over your brothers,
and may the sons of your mother bow down to you.
May those who curse you be cursed
and those who bless you be blessed.”
30 After Isaac finished blessing him, and Jacob had scarcely left his father’s presence, his brother Esau came in from hunting.
