Genesis 33

FIRST READ GENESIS 33

God spoke to me today from Genesis 33:11 where Jacob said, "God has been gracious to me and I have all I need" and this is what I heard Him say:...

“I graciously meet all your needs.  If you are discontent, it’s because you want more than you need.  Perhaps you have looked at how I have blessed others and feel that it’s not fair or that I’m not fair.  But I’m always fair.  Fairness has to do with justice, and if I were only to deal with you according to justice, you would stand condemned, guilty, and doomed.  But I am merciful so that I do not give you the condemnation you do deserve.  Likewise, I am also gracious so I give you goodness that you do not deserve.  You see, it’s not fairness that you want from Me—it’s MERCY and GRACE that you want from Me.  Now, the truth of the matter is, I have been gracious to you already.  I have given you the sun and rain, food, clothing, and shelter, I have given you physical life and offer you eternal life.  I have even given you My Son for you so that you might find eternal life.  I have been gracious and I will always meet your needs. So today, do as Jacob did, acknowledge that I have bene gracious to you and have met all your needs.”
