Verse Of The Day: …” Then Esau wept loudly. So his father Isaac said to him, “Indeed, your home will be away from the richness of the earth, and away from the dew of the sky above. You will … serve your brother. When you grow restless, you will tear off his yoke from your neck.” Genesis 27 : 38 – 40
LISTEN: Certain things will limit you in life until you push to break through. They are like yokes that needs to be broken. A lot of destinies have been tampered with by satanic forces, wicked people, and curses. Sometimes, people unconsciously through their own actions surrender themselves to them (evil forces, wicked people, curses). However, you must rise and deal with these influences in your life. In our verse of the day, Jacob’s blessing from his father Isaac placed a limitation to the life of his brother Esau. When Esau wept and demanded to be blessed by his father like his brother Jacob, his father told him that he can only achieve that by opposing to the force of limitation occasioned by Jacob’s blessing. In our verse of the day, Isaac said to Jacob, ” When you grow restless, you will tear off his yoke from your neck.” (Genesis 27 : 40b) This means that he must rise and oppose to hindrances. He must push until he break through. Until he dominates the force of limitation, he will remain limited by his brother’s blessing.
Beloved, nothing can limit you if you invite God. God can turn a cursed man to a blessed person. Do not accept limitation; instead, push to break through. A limited man suffers even in the midst of plenty. He cannot go beyond the limit the enemies have set for him. Though he may see or know where he belongs or what he should attain, but finds it difficult to get there. Limitation makes a man to suffer in the midst of opportunities and possibilities. With the force of limitation, a barrier is placed in the way to greatness of people. Such people may have the potentials for greatness, excellence, and prosperity, but there is an extent to which they are allowed to go in life. Truly, everyone who wants to enter his destiny must be free from this influence. Beloved, you can come out of limitations. Just pray and seek the face of God, and keep pushing by faith in God until you break through. (Matthew 15 :13 ; Luke 1 : 37 ; Jeremiah 32 : 27).
