[The Glory Unveiled]
And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. ( Genesis 25:40 )
Everyday, many life altering decisions are made on the altar of circumstances. And usually as a result of these circumstances, most of the decisions are not objectively made. The wrong decisions made under the wrong circumstances could have been the best decisions for the moment under the right circumstances. Sometimes your breakthrough and best testimonies are only a breath away from enduring that circumstance. Saul should have waited for Samuel to come and perform the rites but he attended to what he shouldn’t attend to because of circumstances (see 1Samuel 13:8-13). Esau gave up his birthright at the beck and call of discomforting circumstance. He sold his destiny cheap, in the market of circumstances. Imagine what would have happened if we endured a little more even though circumstances seem to be against us. Joseph’s life stories paint a beautiful picture of what happens when we refuse to make a theory or a doctrine from our experiences [that become blockade to our breakthroughs]. Instead of building walls around our lives because of our experiences, we should rather just learn from them. So that whatever the circumstances may be, we will not sell our destiny to Jacob!
Prayer_Bead: Jehovah Jireh, thank you for my life and the trail it’s making in the sand of time. Thank you for the grace not to sell my destiny cheap because of circumstances uncomfortable to me.
