Job 32:8 (KJV) But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.
Consider the story of Jacob. He carried the covenant blessing of Abraham, but for many years, he toiled for Laban and was unfairly treated. When it came time for his wages, Jacob proposed a fair arrangement: he would take any sheep or goats that weren’t completely white. This way, there would be no suspicion of theft in the future. Laban agreed, but then deceitfully had all the colored and speckled animals removed before Jacob could choose (see Genesis 30:31-35).
In human terms, it seemed impossible for Jacob to prosper under such unfair treatment. However, everything changed when God inspired him through a dream. He moved from relying solely on hard work to embracing God’s grace. As a result, he became so blessed that Laban and his sons grew envious.
Often, people expect their rightful rewards from the government or employers, only to be let down. Today, I want to suggest that all you truly need is inspiration from God. Just like Jacob, your blessings will chase after you.
Go into today remembering that any kind of struggle – be it financial, academic, marital, or even spiritual – can come to an end when you walk in God’s inspiration.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I seek Your divine inspiration to lead me into my blessings. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
