Your latter end shall be greater than your beginning!
This post is a short one that is meant just to remind you that God never forget or abandon his own, and he will not forget you!
Genesis 45:28; 46:5 “And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die. And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him”
Time would fail me to spell out one after the other the challenges and grieves of Jacob from the day he fled from the face of his brother Esau until Genesis 46. Jacob encountered lots and lots of challenges on his way but one thing was sure, God was with him. From time to time, God would speak to him either to help him make a decision which he’s finding difficult as to how to or when, or God would speak to him to call him to order, or to comfort and strengthen him. God stood by him and was with him throughout his life’s journey and also in the midst of all his troubles.
From the story of Jacob, you will see the fulfilment and confirmation of God’s word which he spoke in Isaiah 46:4 by the mouth of prophet Isaiah. “And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar [grey] hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.”
Moreover, all those challenges Jacob encountered was working together for his good according to Romans 8:28 because his latter end was better, favoured, blessed than his beginning.
As you live this year, if you’ve not known God – that is, you’ve not repented of your sins and become born again, I just want to let you know that Jesus is your only true and faithful companion here and hereafter. How can you go through life successfully and unbroken without the giver and preserver of life? His packed promises are simply for his children not for strangers and so if you want to actually live this life and have real success, If you must get to that dream and expected end (destiny), then it’s time for Jesus to come into your life, take the steering from you and do the driving. Only then will you unfailingly be on your way to that height He has prepared for you. God’s faithfulness reaches the heavens and that faithfulness will also reach you in Jesus name!
