“And He said thy name shall be called no more Jacob but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” – Genesis 32:28
Read: Genesis 30:25-43
On at least ten different occasions, Jacob’s uncle deceived him and believed he was getting away with it. What is really interesting in the story is that sometimes God leads us through certain ‘unreasonable’ and ‘unpopular’ paths in life. However, when He does, it is to bless us and take us to the next level He’s prepared for us in our destiny. The house of ‘Uncle Laban’ held an unprofitable prospect for Jacob, but God took him through there and sent him out with riches after twenty years. That was not because of ‘Uncle Laban’s generosity but because Jacob had a covenant of fruitfulness with God. Child of God, you may be going through an unpopular path at this season of your life, but I want you to know that wherever you are and whatever challenges you face are temporary. Your covenant with God will bring you through. He will not leave you in that prison-house for long. You are coming out with abundance into a wealthy place. I see God lifting you high! You are a prince with God, and will prevail in Jesus’ name. Amen.
