The Father's Authority

Father's Authority
.
Irrespective of the prophecy that was spoken "saying the elder will serve the younger" in the story of Esau and Jacob, the Father had every right to say what will happen in their lives.
.
Had Isaac discerned that the venison was not from Esau, that prophecy would not have come to pass.
.

Everyone needs a Father, to continually keep speaking over their lives, be it biological or spiritual.
.
Lessons to learn.
.
Mothers should never take emotional decisions but should seek God's face.
.
When in doubt over what you think God is saying, don't obey until you are sure. Isaac knew it was not Esau voice but still went ahead to bless Jacob. He should have waited for both sons to be present before blessing any. If one evidence of God is lacking, ignore such instruction.

Genesis 27
