_ Chapter 25
The LORD spoke to Rebekah that, “the older shall serve the younger" (Gen. 25:23), so the encouragement of Rebekah to Jacob to be conniving in chapter 27 was entirely useless. Jacob would set himself up to learn the painful lesson that Abraham his grandfather learned: you can’t bring forth the promise of God with the strength of the flesh.
Just as Isaac needed to contend for the wells Abraham had dug, we need to contend to see everything God has given us regardless of the opposition. We need to stand with Leadership that will fight for what past generations had and then go on to see more. How sad it is when Leaders “explain away” the things God has for His people like healing and the release of God’s Spirit in their lives.
