Genesis 25:22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the LORD. 23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, And two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; And the one people shall be stronger than the other people; And the elder shall serve the younger.
She is pregnant. She feels the babies moving like crazy. She asked the Lord what was going on. I love it that she prayed and asked God. I need to bring all of my worries and anxieties to the Lord in prayer.
God tells her what is happening. He knows before it happens. He is God. He says to her that there are two different nations in her. He tells her that one will be stronger than the other. He tells her that her younger son will be the leader.
Esau and Jacob have done nothing. God already knows exactly what is going to happen. He prophecies what will happen. Do you realize that God can see yesterday, today, and tomorrow like right now? He is the great “I AM.” He is above and outside of time. He knows because He is not limited to time like we are. He can see the end even before the beginning if He wants to.
He made us. He owns the universe. Everyone and everything belongs to Him. How can you not turn from your pride, humble yourself before Him, and believe His Word?
