Message By Dr. Otabil
Firstly, do not sell your birthright. No matter how challenging the situation becomes, do not give up what God has given to you as a rightful blessing. There are many birthrights that seem “worthless” when we think we are “starving” such as our citizenship, our heritage and our faith but do not sell out! Esau did this and regretted it deeply. Our birthright gives us access to what should be uniquely ours but we have a choice to keep or sell our birthright. Don’t sell because you are hungry today or may need to weep for a blessing tomorrow.
Finally, move in the direction God points you toward. God speaks to us collectively and individually. Do not doubt God’s voice to you because everyone else is going in the opposite direction. Abraham was to go to a land he did not know. Jeremiah bought a plot of land when Israel was to be captured by Babylon. Noah built an ark when rain had never fallen. Be brave. Listen to the voice of the Lord and act on His instruction, He will never fail you.
