GENESIS 27 IN FOCUS
Esau said, “Isn’t he rightly named Jacob? This is the second time he has taken advantage of me: He took my birthright, and now he’s taken my blessing!”
THINK ABOUT IT
Why do we see good people suffering’?
Why do we see bad people rejoicing?
Is the world full of injustice?
What is the panacea to our woes?
We live in a world of irony. Two people sit in the same classroom; one dull minded and another brilliant but, in the end, the dull minded becomes successful and somewhat controls the brilliant. Two people may go for a job interview and the less qualified is picked above the most qualified person. Two people start business; one with all the great business plans, all necessary academic qualification and business tycoons support; another without any proper academic qualification or thoughtful plan yet the later succeeds greatly in business. What kind of world are we living in?
The world is full of traitors and conspirators. So many people will do all they can to prevent the good people from succeeding. People cheat in favor of and for wrong people to win elections of all sought because of conspicuous agenda.
Esau, a skillful hunter, while Jacob, content to stay at home among the tents.
yet, upon all the hard working of Esau, he had things always working against him. Though he knew how to cook, he exchanged his birth right for food. Then again, his blessing was taken from him. As hard working as Esau was, he could not get a deserving joy.
So many people who have chosen the path of righteousness are suffering today not just because they want to suffer, but out of life circumstances. We seldom do take the chances God presents to us. We live in a kind of world that give less regards to the good and focus much on evil. The keen interest of the media is greatly on bad news. The media is quick to report bad news than good news.The world will therefore not be favorable to they that want to live a good life
Jesus said : “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19“If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.”
The book of Ecclesiastics puts it right . The writer said ‘I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.
We ought to be vigilant to understand the ways of God for us.
The great panacea to our woes is to trust and have faith in God and obey his commands.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight
Jesus Christ is coming soon!!!
