Don't lean on your understanding

We have desires and we must lean on the Lord. If we think that we know something that God doesn't so we will help him, then we will have issues.
The issues in my life comes from thinking that I am smarter than God. We need to consult with God and allow him to move in our lives.
Issac wanted to get blessed by his father for the right of the first born so he did his own action.
Issac was tricking his father and his older brother came into the room.
A believer should not deceive people but Issac was deceiving his father and it caused issues with his brother.
I believe that God would have gave the first born rights in his timing but Issac wasn't patience.
I hope that we allow the Lord to move and we can't make the will of the Lord happens.
I am not saying don't do anything but if it is the Lord's will to move then move but don't jump the gun.

Genesis 27:31-36


31 He too prepared some tasty food and brought it to his father. Then he said to him, “My father, please sit up and eat some of my game, so that you may give me your blessing.”
32 His father Isaac asked him, “Who are you?”
“I am your son,” he answered, “your firstborn, Esau.”
33 Isaac trembled violently and said, “Who was it, then, that hunted game and brought it to me? I ate it just before you came and I blessed him—and indeed he will be blessed!”
34 When Esau heard his father’s words, he burst out with a loud and bitter cry and said to his father, “Bless me—me too, my father!”
35 But he said, “Your brother came deceitfully and took your blessing.”
36 Esau said, “Isn’t he rightly named Jacob[a]? This is the second time he has taken advantage of me: He took my birthright, and now he’s taken my blessing!” Then he asked, “Haven’t you reserved any blessing for me?”
