Topic: IF YOU DO WELL 2
Bible Reading: Genesis 27:40-41
📖40….”And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
📖41….And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.”
🔥Our Bible reading taken from Genesis 27:40-41, is a replica of God’s counsel to Cain in Gen 4:7. Observe that Jacob had just robbed Esau of his blessings, yet the father, Isaac, instructed Esau to think of having dominion (KJV), or growing restless according to NIV & NKJV, instead of going after his brother, Jacob’s life. Yet in verse 41, Esau hated his brother, and instead of growing restless to dominate Jacob and break the yoke of servitude from his neck, he was after revenge. Same with Cain who was instructed by God to do well, to be accepted in Gen 4:7, yet went after Abel and killed him in Gen 4:8.
🔥🔥The big question is, HOW DO WE DO WELL to break free from curses? To do well, is to overcome by faith in God. Since the curse affects children of Abraham (faith), according to Luke 13:16, we can only get out of the curses by a restive and rebellious faith, according to the Good News Translation of Gen 27:40. This can be done by offering a selfless sacrifice, as Noah did in Genesis 8:20-22. Abraham was also said to have done well when he offered his only son of promise, as an irreversible sacrifice to God in Gen 22:1-18, and God made him a blessing.
🔥🔥🔥Also, to do well is to attitudinally erase the effects of our bad pasts, whether ours or foundational bad pasts, from haunting us in the future. Hannah erased the curse of barrenness by a painful dedication of her heart’s desire to God in 1 Sam 1:27-28, 2:20-21. A widow did well and terminated the curse of draught by feeding a man of God with her last meal in 1 Kgs 17:9-16. Even Jesus Christ did well and erased the curse upon humanity by accepting to be crucified on the Cross, to create an altar of safety and curses termination for mankind. Beloveth, as you try to do well by inculcating any of the above attitudes into your life, God shall accept you like Abel.
🙏O Lord, inject into me the spirit of dominion, so that I can grow restive, and overtake my destiny robbers, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, may my daily sacrificial offerings be acceptable by you as deeds well done, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏My father, my father, accept all my service rendition to you at the altar of safety called the Cross, as sweet smelling savour, in Jesus’ name.
