And God said to him, "Your name is Jacob; no longer shall your name be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name." So he called his name Israel. Genesis 35:10 ESV

Jacob could have stayed and continued working for his father-in-law, Laban, but he would have missed God’s plan. He could have been satisfied with where he was, but he would have missed where he needed to be. He could have hidden from his brother Esau and missed a memorable and welcome reunion. It seems choices have consequences—and not all of them are bad.

Jacob was seeking God, raising boys, and tending livestock. It was the seeking God part that resulted in a meeting with the Almighty One. God promised Jacob the land of his father, Isaac, and grandfather, Abraham. He was given a new name—he was no longer Jacob, but Israel. This name was God’s blessing for the man who had endured so much setback.

Perseverance can lead a man to an outcome he didn’t see coming God is aware that you will break His law—that you will sin. He is aware that you will be impulsive. He knows you will need forgiveness. But each time you turn away, endurance returns your focus to seeking God. Keep doing that every time you become aware that you’ve turned away.

Prayer: Lord, I never want to turn away from You, but I have. I never want to let You down, but I will. I never want to stay in that place, so get my attention so that I turn back to You.

Hi I would offer.

The bible informs us in Romans 3 that no man of his own volition can seek after God . No one can understand a God not seen. He gets our attention through his understanding that he freely gives us . Seeing he is not served by human hands we relaize it is God who works in any believer to both will and empower them to perform the good pleasure of God. (Philipians2:13-14)

We are to do it yoked with Emanuael (God with us) without murumming. Not like that of Jonah who would of rathered died than perform the good will . We I beleive should follow the example of Jesus who delighted in doing the will of the father.

God seeks us so that in return we can seek after him having the knowldge by which to make it posible to seek His face..

In that way we should be carefull how we hear or say we hear His understanding of faith that works in us .What the Spirt says to the churches (denominations) not what the demonation say as their own private interpretation (our personal commentaries) of His . . .The word of God. Our first love that we do return to when we fall. Then we can do the first works of Him working in us with us . . beleive God not seen.

I would agree. Because we have been given a new spirit that will not die His understanding that is freely given to us is a rewarder of his power of those who seek Him.

I think in that way a rewarder is one who pays the wage (the outcome of work of the father and Son .The three day and night demoatation of the two working as one.


2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.


We have the reward of his labor of love or work of faith workjing in us but it could never be of us. Because he does love us by giving us His Spirit of understanding we therefore can do the first works of Him working is us yoked with him . . . believe Him. . not seen
