God Hasn’t Changed

Rachel demonstrated trying to make things happen in her own strength. She didn’t steal the household gods to worship them. They held a greater purpose.

“…household gods were used as evidence of family leadership. …Rachel stole the gods to give her husband the position of tribal leader. …Laban was so insistent on getting them back to make sure one of his own sons would become the family chief. …to erect a boundary…to make sure Jacob never returned with the household gods to claim the first rights to the family holdings.” Chronological Study Bible Notes

Jacob relied on God. He knew all his blessing came from God:

  • His children, 30:2.
  • His wages, 30:31-33; 31:8-9.
  • His home, 31:3, 13.

Laban changed his wages 10 times but God blessed him every time. He trusted God because He never changes and never leaves.

Genesis 31:5, “…But the God of my father hasn’t changed; he’s still with me.” The Message

Was there ever a time when God vindicated you after being cheated? What about vindicating your children?
