Larry’s sermon title for today is “Let God Prevail Because God will Prevail”

(Isaiah 55:1-13)

According to some Hebrew scholars, the name “Israel” given to Jacob after he wrestled with God (Gen. 32:22-32), because he would not let go and prevailed to receive a blessing from God.  Jacob ‘prevailed’ because he would not give up and so desperately desired what God wanted to give to him.  At the time of his birth, Jacob, whose name meant “heel grabber” took hold of Esau who was born first (Gen. 25:26), but God had already foretold, “the older will serve the younger” (Gen. 25:23).  Latter we discover that Esau—the older sold his birthright to Jacob—the younger for a pot of stew (Gen. 25:29-34).  At the time when Isaac was to bestow the birthright, Rebekah and Jacob devised a deceitful plan to ensure that he, rather than Esau would receive the blessing from Isaac (Gen. 27).  When Jacab later encountered God, he wanted a blessing and wrestled with Him, and was allowed to ‘prevail’ (Gen. 32:28), and his name was changed from Jacob to Israel.  God’s Word always accomplishes the purpose for which it is given (Isa. 55:11) and God ‘prevails’ in our own lives as we allow Him and His Word to ‘prevail’ in the accomplishment of His purpose for our lives.  The price of the blessing for Jacob was that his hip was dislocated and he probably walked with a limp for the rest of his life as a reminder of the cost of what happened when he wrestled with God.  Israel as a nation, was not allowed to ‘prevail’ in their sin and disobedience in keeping their covenant with God.  May we surrender always, in every area of our lives to watch and to ‘let God prevail’ because His Word is true and the results are certain.
