Genesis 27:40 “By your sword you shall live, And you shall serve your brother; And it shall come to pass, when you become restless, That you shall break his yoke from your neck.”(NKJV)
Amos 6:2 “Well, wake up and look around. Get off your pedestal. Take a look at Calneh. Go and visit Great Hamath. Look in on Gath of the Philistines. Doesn’t that take you off your high horse? Compared to them, you’re not much, are you?” (MSG)
God told them in a plain language that they have simply put themselves on a false height, a fake high pedestal.
He now shocked them by telling them about higher places such as Calneh, Great Hamath and Gath. Those were places far higher and better than Mount Samaria. God used these other places to silence them and equally challenge them to aspire for more.
There is always a better place than where we are but it will take the gift of restlessness to take us there.
God is saying there are greater kingdoms, new Lands to conquer and explore.
The beginning of success is discontentment. You cannot change what you love and is comfortable with. Something in you must rebel against the norm.
You cannot change what you are not angry with. You must start asking yourself some thought provoking questions, such as:
Why must I continue to live in abject poverty?
Why must I remain sick?
Why am I not living my dreams?
Why this stagnation and limitations?
Friend, the quality of your questions determines the quality of answers you’ll be getting and of course the overall quality of your life.
You’ve got to start challenging the negative situations in your life and getting restless about them.
I discovered that at the end Esau also became a rearer of animals just like Jacob, he didn’t remain a hunter. He became restless about the hunting job and “broke the yoke from his neck”.
Beloved, what questions are you asking? What are you restless about?
