“Let peoples serve you, And nations bow down to you. Be master over your brethren, And let your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, And blessed be those who bless you!”
What a interesting story here of a dysfunctional family all jockeying for the blessing of the LORD! What’s funny is the LORD had already promised all this to Jacob.
“But the children struggled together within her; and she said, If all is well, why am I like this? So she went to inquire of the LORD. And the LORD said to her: Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”
The bottom line is we need to just listen to the LORD and for His voice! He means what He says and does what He says! His promises always come through!
“Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right; The righteous walk in them, But transgressors stumble in them.”
Understand that we don’t need to manipulate things to get blessings or to even look good! All we need to do is listen to the LORD! Everything we need to know is covered in His word, so let us read our Bibles and pray! Hope and pray your day is blessed!
