1/23/2018 Genesis Chapters 32-34
How often do we make plans for “the worst” only to find out that we are truly blessed if we remain within God’s will? This thought came to my mind as I read Genesis Chapter 32 & 33 as Jacob prepared for and met his brother Esau.
I can only envision the effort that it took to gather “4 two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, 15 thirty female camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, and twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys.”
And yet we see that when Jacob met Esau all of this effort was not needed — Esau met him with open arms & did not even desire the gifts. While there is nothing wrong in “planning” like Jacob do we sometime “plan” and not “trust in the Lord?”
