Genesis 33

Good morning y’all. Today we in chapter 33 of Genesis. In this chapter, Jacob and Esau finally meet and reconcile. Jacob settles in Shechem with his family.

Be blessed 🙂

Jacob prayed in chapter 32 for God to deliver him from Esaus wrath and God did as we can see in today’s chapter. This tells me that God does and still answers prayers. God has all power and can make our enemies be at peace with us. Those who were once against us, all of a sudden can be for us. Proverbs 16:7 says “when the ways of a man pleases the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him“. I believe that’s exactly what God did for Jacob here.

God changed Esaus’ heart around. He was coming with 400 men against Jacob but somehow when he got to jacob he ran towards him and embraced him. He even offered to lead the way and leave some of his men behind to guide Jacob and his family.

When we trust in God and commit our problems to him, he comes through for us. He has said in his word that those who put their trust in him, will not be put to shame (Psalms 25:3).

Whatever you are facing today, commit it to God and watch him fight your battles and come through for you

Prayer:
Dear Lord we thank you for today. Thank you for your word which is true and living. Thank you for reminding us that you answer us when we pray to you. Today we ask for the grace to trust you more and to rely on you to fight our battles. Thank you Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Thanks for joining today.

Have a blessed day and remember God does answer prayers 🙂

One thought on “Genesis 33

  1. Thank you for sharing this with us today. I am particularly moved by the text in Prov 16:7 and how that affects us all today. As it was with Jacob, I believe the Lord still for us today: ‘… the Lord will show mercy unto whom He would show mercy.’

    May the Lord help us all to know Him more; love Him more; seek Him more; and please Him more (even in faithful service) in Jesus Name.
