When God blesses you with His presence, he expects you to reflect him and not yourself and that meant Jacob had to come to grips with who he was and how he had impacted others. God allows hardship in our lives to teach us about ourselves.

What happens when the selfishness of each individual in an already dysfunctional family seek to thwart the will of God?  A great deal of pain and confusion ensues.  But God’s eternal will remains unthwarted.  In fact, His sovereignty causes all things to work together for His greater plan.

Both in good ways and bad ways, we tend to have similar characteristics of those who have gone before us. It was true with Isaac and Abraham, it is true with us as well. But the promise of the Gospel is the One who preceded us all, is the One in whose image Christians will ultimately be conformed. And He is with us every step of our yesterdays, today’s, and tomorrows to fulfill this work for His glory.

It was Benjamin Franklin who said, “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”  Similarly, when thinking about faith, there are two things that go hand in hand, not just in Abraham’s experience, but in anyone’s life, and it is this – obedience and trial.

What happens when Abraham puts the best of his yesterdays, the mess of his today’s, and the fear of his tomorrows before God.  He finds out His best, and worst, simply won’t do.  Yet he’s accepted by God.  How is that possible and why is that great news for us?

In order to get “buy in” you often hear people talk about “skin in the game”. In Genesis 17 God makes promises to Abram and this time goes even further in assuring Abram that His Covenant is everlasting and trustworthy!

Abraham is a person with whom almost anyone can identify.  Fearful, faltering, yet still described as faithful, his interaction with God and His promises give each of us hope.
