Discover and Become Everything God has Created You to Be!
Today's entry is the final post in the Jacob / Laban series. For the past two posts we have been looking at the relationship between Jacob and his father-in-law, Laban - particularly how God sees us and He is with us when we are experiencing unpleasant circumstances such as unfair treatment and harsh conditions.
Today's segment deals with what people say to us whether good or bad as well as how to continue to work hard with joy and enthusiasm even when it seems like no one notices or appreciates what we are doing.
I (Laban) could easily hurt you, but the God your father worshiped has warned me not to make any threats or promises (to Jacob). Genesis 31:29 cev - parentheses mine
God is so loving and so aware of what we are going through that He is even able to control what is said to us. Many people mean well, but unless their words and actions originate from the will of God, then they will be eternally futile. God must be behind other peoples' words and actions in order for them to bear fruit and become instrumental in carrying out His will in our lives. God is so precise. He even knows what we need to hear and also what types of interventions we need to experience in order to walk out and accomplish the fullness of our destiny in Him.
. . . But God saw my hard work, and he knew the trouble I was in, so he helped me. Genesis 31:42 cev
Our hard work may go unnoticed at times by man, but it never goes unnoticed by God. He sees it all, and our help and reward comes from Him. We are all learning to walk, run, and eventually fly for the glory of God. God longs for the day when all of His children are shining bright and living at their highest capacity. Amid our trials, He is faithful to provide the moments of peace and joy to sustain us. He will also impart to us the wisdom necessary for us to continue to be successful and prosperous even while we are in the midst of struggle and suffering. He can’t wait to see you become all He has created you to be. God sees you and He will help you!
Thank you for joining us today! I hope this series on Jacob and Laban has encouraged you to live and work with joy and excellence knowing that God is on your side, God sees you, and He is there to help you do your best and to be your best. Please feel free to include your thoughts and comments and we hope to see you again soon!
