Welcome to purposeful living today. I must begin by thanking you specially for taking out time to read the post on this blog.  Thanks for your comments, sharing these post and your likes on facebook.  Please your corrections and contributions are welcomed as always ,  we are in this together and you know so much that I don't know.  Thanks one more time.
Today I complete the series on Esau, why and how he lost his birth right to Jacob and the lesson for us, especially the young people in this generation. Finally another attribute I discovered that made Esau move in the wrong path and hindered him to not to inherit the blessing of Abraham was:
Esau did not have a personal relationship with God, to him God was out of the picture.  Every of the Patriarch of Israel had a covenant relationship with God.  He was the self believing and an independent man on himself .  There is  no where it was recorded Esau prayed to God or had an encounter with God. Jacob despite he was a cheater and did what was wrong. When he ran out of his father's house that night he had an encounter with God and he said surely God is in this place and he built a monument with a promise to God, as for Esau none of such record. Which means Jacob knew God that he recognized His presence. Esau got married to women that were not his tribe, who can be classified as unbelievers today. This women made life miserable for his Parent, from Abraham to his Father Isaac they married from their own tribe,  this was because of the covenant they had with God. Jacob did not follow Esau's foot step,  he married from their tribe he did not go and marry an unbeliever.
Esau did not care, and married ungodly wives.  How do you expect God to unleash his covenant with a man that had no regard for him, even in making very crucial decisions. 
This is what God saw in Him even before he was born,  but he did not change his ways.
Esau was not responsible with his life style to carry God's blessings, because God works with order.  This is why Ruben lost his position as first born to Judah.

How often do we take God out of the picture in our lives and want to do things our way.  Trying to do it out way we walk away from God's instructions and end in the path way of destruction .  There is a promise,  plan and purpose of God for you. It will be difficult to fulfill it,  if you don't connect everyday with God your SOURCE so he can make you a RESOURCE on the earth. We lose the essence of life when withdraw from God.
The moon need alignment with the sun so it can have light.  So we need ALIGNMENT with God  to fulfill our ASSIGNMENT on earth.  Remember Jesus said "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing" (John 15:5). This means that one very important thing you can do without God is called nothing. You are breathing today because of God,  so let Him be number one in your life.  When God is with you it is called GRACE in life ,  when it is you alone in the path to success in life is called RACE.
You can spend hourson whatsapp,  facebook, instagram... You find it difficult or burdensome  to spend time in prayers and study of His word so you walk in his plans and purpose for you...
He loves you and wants to help you fulfill destiny,  but the devil hates you and wants to destroy your destiny. Jesus came that you may have life,  the devil came to steal and destroy your life.
Surrender your life to Jesus Christ today. He has the best to offer you. 
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" Matthew 6:33.
