My Daily Blessing from My Daily Bible Reading

Genesis 25:22-ĖGenesis 27:31

DECEIT & DESPAIR

GENESIS 27:1

"And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim . . .he called Esau his eldest son, . . .and said. . .I am old. . ."

 

In a fast review of Isaacís life, we see how he respected his father, Abraham, loved

Rebecca, and favored Esau above all others. Why he favored his oldest son, we donít know. This favoritism has been argued down through the times of Biblical history. In his old age, Isaac favored Esau more than ever. He enjoyed hearing of his sonís hunting escapades and desired to eat the cooked catch of such adventures.

Being blind, there wasnít much enjoyment left in the old manís life except Esau and his food. Such a sad commentary on life that all we care about is food. Because of Isaacís appetite, as well as pure deceit by his wife and younger son, the last days of Isaac were days of family squabbles and deceit. How sad. LET US LEARN FROM SUCH DESPAIR TO MAKE THE CLOSING DAYS OF THOSE WE LOVE PLEASANT AND FILLED WITH HONESTY AS WELL AS CHRISTIAN KINDNESS. (ysw)


"GOD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY HEART!"

It seemed I have had many hard and perplexing things happen to me and mine.

These were too great for me to cope with.

But God gave me this verse during a time of utter exhaustion.

It has been mine ever since!

ĎMY STRENGTH AND MY HEART FAIL

BUT GOD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY HEART

AND MY PORTION FOREVER.í"

(Psalm 73:26)

(GGS)

And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son.

And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

(Genesis 18:10)
