Hello brothers and sisters!
It has been a while since I wrote a blog post. I really need to redefine my priorities and be able to write about everything God is putting into my heart.
A few days ago, It was my birthday and also it was my time to preach at church. For a few day prior to Sunday, I kept singing Bri song ‘Jacob’s song’, I was more focus on singing the chorus.
I won’t let go until you bless my soul, until you change my name or I’m no longer the same
over and over…
Then something just came to me on that Sunday. God has a plan for each one of us and God is able to make changes and even change our destinies just in a sec. God also sees our heart, how bad we want him and things to go forward. I took the example of Jacob in Genesis 32.22-29
26 And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”
Jacob said to the man he was wrestling with (who was God) I will not let you go until you bless me! Jacob took the opportunity to make a change at that moment, he had faith and perseverance, all of that at that moment. (First of all discernment, he could have thought that a demon is attacking) He didn’t let go. How many of us told God those words to show how determined we are? Personally, I won’t give up on my God because I know he will bless me. God looked at Jacob strong will and blessed him. His name changed to Israel a great nation. I thought, me as well I do not want to be the same.
I want God to see how I am willing to hear from him, to be blessed, to be changed. I don’t know about you but me I want to see great things happening. Even if I know my destiny. Jacob was already destined to greatness but he asked to be blessed at that moment. Maybe God wanted to give him everything later. I do not know but he received what he deserved at that moment because of his determination, his willingness, his perseverance, his faith and because his heart was genuine. This is what was on my heart, God sees our heart and our willingness to serve him that he is able to make a shift, an update to the plans he has for us, nothing is impossible to him. It happened in one night for Jacob, why not us?
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:4
Now take some time to reflect and meditate on this
God bless you🙂
