When We Have to Face the Consequence of Our Mistake..

From Genesis 32.

Jacob made a horrible mistake, deliberately.
Instead of trusting in God’s wisdom to bring the Isaac’s blessing upon him, he deceived Esau to sell the birth right.
Furthermore, he deceived Isaac; he told Isaac he was Esau.
As a consequence he had to run away from his family. Esau’s anger burnt hot against him.

One day, he wanted to return to his family. Yet, he was afraid of Esau.
He still thought Esau would want to kill him.
While he was still at a distance from Esau, he sent him gifts after gifts to order to pacify Esau.
Then, Jacob wrestled with God Himself.

In the end, God did a huge miracle as Jacob was approaching Esau.
Esau was not angry. Esau even ran and embraced Jacob. Both of them wept tear of reconciliation.

We may do mistake, accidentally or deliberately.
Yet, as long as we turned to God, He will do something about it.
Something good, beautiful and miraculous.
God can use our mistake for something great.
