This morning I went looking for 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.
