Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 12 - Morning

"Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. He said to Jacob, 'Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!' (That is why he was also called Edom.)

Jacob replied, 'First sell me your birthright.'

'Look, I am about to die,' Esau said.
'What good is the birthright to me?'

But Jacob said, 'Swear to me first.'
So he swore an oath to him, selling
his birthright to Jacob.

Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left.
So Esau despised his birthright."

- Genesis 25:29-34

Jacob Could See the Unseen and Stay Focused On It!    

Esau does not ask to “eat” the stew, but to la’at, which is a crude expression of uncultured “gulping it down.”

Jacob knows exactly what he wants. He hasn’t taken his eye off the goal. He sees something that is of value and he sees that the person who has it is not interested in pursuing the full potential. Without hesitating Jacob is ready to make the switch: stew to gulp down in an instant in exchange for a birthright that will be developed and advanced through all future generations!

Jacob could see what Esau could not see.

Failure to understand the promises of God will result in us not looking for there fulfillment of those promises. Refusal to activate the power of God’s Word will leave us abandoned to our own schemes and strategies. Distraction away from seeing the potential God has placed in our lives will ultimately result in our being rejected when the time comes to receive the benefits and blessings of the truth.

Eventually, Esau would seek it, and seek it with tears, but he sought it too late. We must see and understand the Truth and its potential while it is unseen.

“…Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.” – Hebrews 12:16-17

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Faith, which is trust, and fear are opposite poles. If a man has the one, he can scarcely have the other in vigorous operation. He that has his trust set upon God does not need to dread anything except the weakening or the paralyzing
of that trust."

- Alexander Maclaren
Something to Ponder??
Columba was born in north Ireland in 521 AD. Columba’s family was Christian and he received higher education at church schools and was noted for his scholarship. Columba was also noted for is tall, strong stature, being a great speaker with a sharp sense of humor, but also having a temper that got him into several conflicts with the clan’s chieftain named Diamait. In 561 Columba copied Jerome’s Latin translation of the Psalms and the Gospels without permission.  When Columba refused to surrender the manuscripts a tribal war broke out between his supporters and Diamait. As a result 3,000 men died. To preserve his life and to do penitence Columba left Ireland to evangelize the Scottish Isle of Iona. There he ministered among the Picts and the Druids with success. Eventually Iona developed a reputation for education and evangelized Europe.
