Meeting His Match
The schemer gets schemed.
Jacob has been wheeling and dealing, scheming and dreaming, conniving and thriving (or so he thinks). He is about to meet his match in uncle Laban.
Genesis 29 begins a series of events in which Laban and Jacob battle and scheme against each other. God is bringing Jacob face to face with one like him in the hopes of breaking him from his scheming and bringing him into a place of trust.
God is good to allow us to meet our match in life in order to break us from the scheming of our ways and invite us into a complete trust in the Lord.
