Read Genesis 27:1-45
36 Esau exclaimed, "No wonder his name is Jacob, for now he has cheated me twice. First he took my rights as the firstborn, and now he has stolen my blessing. Oh, haven't you saved even one blessing for me?" - Genesis 27:36 NLT
Hello family, Jacobs name means trickster,supplanter. He had a track record but his mess ups and checkered past did not stop God from using him in his divine plan to start the nation of Israel.
Israel eventually becomes his name. God turned Jacob around and got him on the right track. Sometime we may look at the sin we have committed and think “dang! i can't get it right. how can i be used of God now?”
Since when did you gain the authority to decide what God can use and can’t use? If you look through the family tree of Jesus you can find some people that had some issues. Rahab was a prostitute, David and Bathsheba (we know what happened there), solomon got wife happy against the lords commands and so on. God still used them
By no means do we go and do as we please. yes we all done some things that God is not pleased about. We now continue our pursuit of God. He can still use you. if we were all perfect there would be no need for christ to head his blood on the cross. Your destiny is not Derailed! You are redeemed!
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. - Hebrews 12:1 NLT
Much Love & God Bless
