Jacob’s
big lesson
No longer self centred, a nation was birthed in him. At last, he was free to be the Jacob he was born to
be, to fulfi l his destiny in God, to be a father, a son and a husband to a nation.
Jacob’s goal of being number one was achieved not in ruling but in servant hood, not in being the main
man but by being himself. Jacob became free when he realised that God loved him. Jacob gave up trying
to be a somebody and grew to know that his heavenly Father accepted him just as he was.
Are you with me? Your natural father may never have given you the ‘well done’ you craved but God, your
heavenly Father, is shouting; ‘ well done my good and faithful servant.’ It’s time to stop seeking the ‘well
done’ of man. The praise of a mere mortal pales into insignifi cance compared with praise from Heaven.
Like Jacob, you may have prayed, ‘ If you get me out of this mess, Lord, I will serve you. I will give all I
have to you.’ If this be true, then fi nd something bigger than you and pour your life into it.
You are called to change your world and the world around you. Let your security be in your heavenly
Father not in the memories of your earthy father. Let freedom ring from the battlements of your heart;
let it sound loud and clear by your willingness to give your life, your wealth, your time and your all to the
One who hung on a cruel cross.
