Does it ever seem to you that sometimes God’s blessings are unstoppable?
Unstoppable for others that is!
Why does God do that? You peer into someone else’s life who doesn’t seem to be all that deserving and wonder why God does it for them … and not for you.
Or maybe you do acknowledge God’s blessings in your own life but still wonder how come He also blesses … cheats, liars, thieves and betrayers. Like Jacob of the Bible for example.
I seriously am perplexed at first glance when reading his story in Genesis ___-
As the son and heir of his dad Isaac and grandson of the infamous father of our faith, Abraham … he would certainly be entitled to God’s covenant promises. But he was basically a weasel in much of his behavior and God overlooks it. Or maybe tolerates it like a parent with a naughty kid they just can’t resist.
Surely there were things God liked about Jacob and could be proud of like his hard work ethic, loyalty, family life … But this is also the same man who deceived and betrayed his own father, cheated and stole his brother’s right of blessing and then ran away like a coward.
Nevertheless, God can’t seem to help Himself and pours out unstoppable blessings and favor all over Jacob’s life! (Quote verse here)
So take a look at your own life. Guessing somewhere along the way you too have cheated, lied, betrayed and have been disloyal and self-centered. And if you dig down a bit, you will also see that in spite of your less than perfect self, God still has smothered you in His blessings.
The fact is that Jesus died for your sins so you can have forgiveness, freedom from the tyranny of sin and a life with God that will never end. He also offers you unlimited spiritual blessings and power through His Holy Spirit living inside of you.
Why does He do all that? Because He made you, He loves you and He can’t help but want to bless you! All you have to do is surrender, believe, receive and walk it out with Him every day.
