SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE 22 JUNE 2022 DEVOTIONAL
Topic: Obtaining ‘Blessing’ by Manipulation is Ungodly
Opening Prayer: I open my heart to meditate on your word, teach me your ways oh Lord.
Scripture: Genesis 27:1‐17
Question(s) for Reflection
• Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Is there any warning for me to heed?
Aging and death are inevitable in human existence. Isaac was faced with this bitter reality. He became old, partially blind and confined in bed, awaiting death. He was determined to handover the baton to his first son Esau by transferring the divine blessing he inherited to him. Notice his instruction to Esau in his preparation to bless him (vs.2‐4).
Having overheard this conversation between Isaac and Esau, Rebekah calls Jacob, her favourite son and planned with him to deceive his father to receive the promised blessing. Even though reluctant for fear of the consequences if the plot fails, Jacob consented and swings into action as directed by his mother (vs.11‐14). See how their plot was perfected (vs.15‐16). What do you think inspires such confidence and courage in Rebekah?
See Genesis 25:23, 32‐34. God chose Jacob before he was born to be the leader, so trying to obtain his father’s blessing by manipulation was uncalled for and sinful. God is able to accomplish his plans for each of us, thus we do not need to engage in scheming. God does not need “our help” to make us what he wants us to be. You only have to obey his instructions as you follow him closely.
So what? Claim God’s promises in prayer and trust Him to fulfil His plan for your life and ministry.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
• Father, please don’t let my destiny be manipulated or exchanged for evil rather help me to fulfil your plan and purpose for my life.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with
Jeremiah 33:6; 2 Chronicles 29, 30; Ecclesiastes 5
