Jacob’s Vindication

Being cheated again and again.
It must have been tough for Jacob when he worked for Laban, his father in law.
First, he was tricked into working for 14 years instead of just 7 years.
The agreement was that he was to marry Rachel. Yet, Laban tricked him into marrying Leah.

Jacob worked hard. God blessed the work of his hands.
Laban’s flocks grew wonderfully.
Yet, Laban kept changing Jacob’s wages. Not once, but ten times.
In all this, Jacob held his peace. He trusted God to change the circumstance for him.

Eventually, God did.
Jacob’s flock grew much more than Laban’s flock.

My situation is more or less similar like Jacob’s.
The agreement has been changed times and again.
Each change has placed in more and more disadvantaged position.

Jacob trusted God and God vindicated him.
Likewise, I keep trusting God and one day God will vindicate me.
