Jacob. The receiver of a “secondhand” birthright and now the thief of a blessing. This is the man who inherits God’s covenant and goes on to father the twelve nations of Israel. A man willing to deceive his own father. I can’t believe God would use him.

Oh, but how quickly those words turned sour in my mouth. How many mistakes have I made? How many times have I chosen the wrong path? And yet he calls me by none of those things.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
