Topic: GOD’S WORD CANNOT BE CHANGED
Bible Reading: Genesis 27:1-5
📖1….”And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.
📖3….Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;
📖4….And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die.
📖5…. AND REBEKAH HEARD when Isaac spake to Esau his son….”
🔥This is the danger of having divided interest, attention and love for one’s children. Parents ought not to prefer one of his children to another. In Genesis 27:1, Isaac called Esau his son. While in verse 8, Rebekah called Jacob her son. That was cheer separation of their only children. Interestingly, they didn’t start referring to them that way that day; it had been in their hearts and attitudes towards the children. Their mouths only exposed them that day, by speaking it to fulfill Jesus’ statement in Matthew 12:34.
🔥🔥Who do we blame in these scenarios? While one was pursuing a carnal appetite, the other was pursuing fulfilment of God’s word. Rebekah had earlier been told by God during labour in Genesis 25:22-23 that there were two people and nations in her womb. And that the elder shall serve the younger. Since they were the first set of twins to be born by man, Rebekah couldn’t have hidden it from her husband out of fear. But since most men naturally love their first sons more, Isaac wanted to change God’s word concerning the two children by planning to bless Esau instead of Jacob.
🔥🔥🔥But thank God Rebekah heard when Isaac spoke to Esau in Gen 27:5. God is not a carnal man. He is a Spirit. And whoever wants to change your destiny is carnal. Every destiny is spiritually designed; so, carnal man cannot change it. God said in Gen 25:23 that, the younger shall head the family, but Isaac wanted to challenge God in Gen 27:1-4. Beloved children of God, as Jacob’s divine destiny could not be changed by both Isaac and Esau, our destiny cannot also be changed by our kith and kin because, God’s word concerning us is forever settled in heaven…Psalm 119:89.
🙏Heavenly Father, position someone to hear for me, whenever the enemy is plotting my downfall, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, make it impossible for your word concerning me and my family to be changed by the enemies, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Omniscient Father, destroy every spirit of division and schism operating secretly in our Church to sabotage the reign of Christ’s love, in Jesus’ name.
