You will live by your sword, and you will serve your
But when you decide to break free, you will shake his yoke
from your neck. (Genesis 27:40)
Esau‘s father could hear the bitterness, the anger and even hatred that had taken hold of his son’s life.
Like must parents, who are concerned with their children's future, Isaac was warning him of the danger to such emotions. Esau's life would become a prison, if he was to hold on to the unforgiveness that was rooted in his heart.
Someday, Esau would have to “decide” if he was going to break free from the yoke that was placed around his neck because of the unforgiveness towards his brother, Jacob.
One thing keeps coming up through studying God’s Word and that is “it’s our choice.” It’s our choice to live a life of fullness in the Presence of God or to hide in the darkness of the enemy.
What is your choice?
I choose Life!
