Your Best Can Be Better.

Your Best Can Be Better.
“And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” (Genesis 32:28) KJV
In the above verse, Jacob became Israel.
Earlier Jacob had recorded some successes before this time.
He had, through manipulation, got his brother’s birthright.
He had also deceived his father Isaac to get his blessings.
He made it to Laban, where they both outwit each other, and by all means, life was better for Jacob at the end of his contract with Laban.
He had to return to his homeland, and he realized he was going to face Esau.
He was afraid that nemesis might catch up with him.
Then he had an encounter with God, which permanently changed his status with God and man.
You may have achieved some success in one way or the other, but do you really have the true blessings of God?
Are you living and fulfilling your purposeful life today?
Jacob knew that even before he was born, God had purposed to bless him.
“As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” (Romans 9:13) KJV
Jacob made up his mind to completely surrender his destiny to God. From that encounter, his name changed his status and changed.
You, too, like Jacob, may know what your destiny is supposed to be.
That purposeful life of yours can truly become a reality if you will totally yield your all to God Almighty and let him declare to you as he did to Israel that you have genuinely prevailed.
Application for the Christian life:
God changed your name to the child of God.
You can do better than before.
Give that extra mile.
Become a child of God.
He will help you.
