“So Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks and herds and camels, into two companies.”
We see here that Jacob is really stressing out about Esau, he calls on the LORD for help. Then takes matters into his own hands, he doesn’t fully trust God! Do we do the same?
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
When we call on the LORD to deliver us, do we just give up and let go? Or do we try to help the LORD out? We all need to be careful of praying for the LORD to save us, while still trying to fix the situation ourselves, making a bigger mess!
“My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.”
What a great reminder for us! The LORD created heaven and earth, He also created you and me, so let us realize, He can deal with any situation we are in! Let’s avoid doing what Jacob did and try to help Him out! Remember, it didn’t go well for Jacob, by the end of this chapter he was walking with a limp! Have a blessed day praying, letting go, and watch and see what the LORD will do!
