Hebrews 11:21  By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

You can read about this event in Genesis 48:5 – 22. In this setting, Jacob, who had been named Israel by God, blessed his grandsons Manasseh and Ephraim. Manasseh was the eldest and was thought by their father Joseph to receive the greater blessing, but Jacob pronounced the greater blessing upon the youngest, Ephraim.

At first Joseph was angry about this, but his father Jacob let him know that this is what God wanted. Jacob’s life had been full of many troubles, but by this point in his life he understood how to perceive and obey the voice of God.

This gives you and me hope that, no matter what troubles we have faced in our lives (even if we were the causes of those troubles) it is still possible to move beyond that and get to a higher level in your life where God’s voice is something you learn to perceive and obey.

It may have been easy at one point to look at Jacob’s life and say, “He needs all the prayers he can get.” But, now he was the one blessing others, and that is the way it can be in our lives as well.
