Don’t Let Go Until They’re Blessed
Sermon Scripture: Gen 32:22-26 (GNT) - That same night Jacob got up, took his two wives, his two concubines, and his eleven children, and crossed the Jabbok River. After he had sent them across, he also sent across all that he owned, but he stayed behind, alone. Then a man came and wrestled with him until just before daybreak. When the man saw that he was not winning the struggle, he hit Jacob on the hip, and it was thrown out of joint. The man said, “Let me go; daylight is coming.”
Point #1: Always seek God FIRST for the direction of your family
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall [a]direct your paths.
Point #2: Do What’s Necessary for Your Family
Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”
Point #3: Whatever happens, don’t let go of God until He blesses You
Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread.
