Today’s Daily Devotional


“When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with an exceedingly great and bitter cry, and said to his father, ‘Bless me—me also, O my father!’ But he said, ‘Your brother came with deceit and has taken away your blessing.’”


Isaac’s family was dysfunctional. There was favoritism. There were two brothers that hated one another. There was a dad who was caught up in what he could see and feel, a mother who was scheming, one son who was shady, and another son who was heartbroken all together in this one family. But God was at work in this family.

You may say, “My family is a mess.” Good news. God is still God. I want you to see what God did. Hebrews 11:20 says, “By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.” Despite the dysfunction, God was still at work. A wise man once said, “God does not change us in order to love us; God loves us in order to change us.” God loves your family. God loves you. You may say, “My family is one royal mess.” Hang on! God is not done yet.

  • What in your life or family seems too messy for God to redeem?
  • How are you encouraged by the account of Isaac’s family members and the work God did in their lives?


Take time in prayer to submit your mess before God. Confess to Him the things that seem irredeemable in your life. Ask Him to work in your mess.
