Not my Jacob…

Not My Jacob
Not My Jacob

This morning I went looking for Jacob.

Abraham’s Jacob.

What his name meant in the Hebrew word pictures.

I want to be right in step.

I want to make my decisions to do something by walking in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16

With my “Spiritual” man, my “Israel” (the name given Jacob after wrestling with God through the night – Genesis 32:28.)

Not my “Jacob”, my own self-will.

 

Jacob “Ya aqob (yah-ak-obe’) Yood, Ayin, Koof, Bet

Jacob – God’s hand, to see, to know the depth of our heart.

 

God knew Jacob, even as ornery as he could be.

(Jacob was known for some slick dealings with his brother Esau – Genesis 25:33 and Genesis 27:35)

God guided, protected, and prospered Jacob,

In-spite of himself.

 

Yes, Lord, I desire above all else,

You guide me on all the right paths and decisions in life.

You see what I am from the depth of my heart.

You see what I will become, in-spite of my “Jacob.”


 

“The heart of man plans his way,

But the LORD establishes his steps.”

Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)

 


 

Sharing my journey in Scripture;

and the Hebrew word pictures.

 

I would love to hear your journey.

Blessings, denise
