The Man Who Wrestled With God (7): Sermons on the Old Testament character of Jacob.
Reading: Genesis 31
In this part of the story God seems to orchestrate things so Jacob has to face Laban before leaving for home. God had told Jacob to return home for sure but the sneaky escape plan was not part of God’s idea. Jacob admitted he did what he did because he was afraid of Laban. Yet providence made sure he did not leave without facing him & because of this Jacob left for home with a covenant securing a better future for him & his family. In a similar way God in his mercy orchestrates our lives so we learn to confront what we fear instead of running from or avoiding things. Ultimately it’s truly knowing God’s favour that enables us to face our fears with courage. God’s ways might be the harder option at times but they bring much more freedom & security to our hearts in the end!
