In Genesis 27, you will encounter a young brother who cheated his older brother out of his father’s blessings and his birthright. This is the story of Jacob and Esau and if you have never heard of them, I encourage you to read the book of Genesis. It’s a very powerful story and I’ve heard so many different sermons on it and some questions and controversies as well. I’m here to focus on a revelation God gave me sometime ago through this scripture, Genesis 27:40 NKJV,

“By your sword you shall live,
And you shall serve your brother;
And it shall come to pass, when you become restless,
That you shall break his yoke from your neck.”

Esau’s father (Isaac), laid out all the challenges Esau will encounter in his life because of the blessings he missed and by all accounts, Esau was going to suffer and even become a servant to his younger brother, Jacob. I don’t know about you but hearing how grim your destiny and future will be will make anyone feel defeated already. It sounded like a prophecy of doom to Esau but, Isaac gave him a way out, that when he (Esau) becomes restless and rejects this negative life, when he makes a conscious decision to break free from this curse, he will be able to shake this yoke or burden off his life. That is the same for you and I. It does not matter what life has dealt you, where or how you started. It doesn’t even matter what is coming ahead. What matters is, if you accept situations, they will remain as is. When you are determined to make a change, restless in your spirit man and body, you will do whatever it takes to find solutions to your problems. I have tons of testimonies I can share with you to let you know how certain negative patterns in my life had to break because I became restless with them and I refused to accept them any longer or even nurture the problems. I engaged the Holy Spirit and the word of God and I went into battle with the enemy to reclaim my destiny and my blessings because according to scripture, Christ Jesus has already given me victory over 2000+ years ago, I just had to reclaim what is rightfully mine.

I pray for you this week, that any and every situation in your life that does not speak the glory of Jesus Christ or has mocked God in your life, may the Holy Spirit create a restlessness in your spirit man and give you His spiritual intelligence and weapons to break free from that situation in Jesus’ name. May He empower you to self-deliverance and freedom from ancient and ancestral bondages. May the anointing cause a release for you in every area of stagnation and imprisonment. Be free because the Son of man has set you free. AMEN!
