Scripture: Genesis 27:1-20
In Genesis 27:1-20 we have the account of how Jacob obtains Easu’s birthright and blessing. Jacob is almost caught by his father before he actually procures the blessing of the firstborn. Isaac cannot understand how Easu has caught and prepared the food so quickly. The answer that Jacob gives in verse 20 is what gains him the blessing of the birthright. It is the very place that we find the Lord our God. Jehovah our Elohim. Genesis 27:20 says, “But Isaac said to his son, ‘How is it that you have found it so quickly, so quickly, my son?’ And he said, “Because the Lord your God brought it to me.” This is Jehovah your Elohim—the Lord your God. Elohim is the consistent manifestation of God in Scripture as our Provider, the One we worship and our Creator. Jehovah however is a completely different revelation. If we are going to believe Deuteronomy 8:18 we need to get to know the Lord our God—the Judicial Provider!
