I am reminded of a story in Genesis regarding the labour of love by Jacob for Rachel. The story is found in Gen :30:25-43. Jacob had worked for Laban for 14years and it was time for Jacob to depart with his wives and children. Laban refused. Jacob entered in an agreement with Laban.
Laban removed all the speckled and spotted sheep,lamb and goats, put a distance between him and Jacob. Jacob was left with only the animals with slid colour. He took rods of green poplar and almond and chestnut trees, peeled white strips in them and exposed the white which was in the rods. He set the rods before the flocks in the watering troughs where the flocks came to to drink. The flocks conceive before the rods and the flocks conceived streaked, speckled and spotted offsprings.
God changed Jacob’s imagination using the speckled and spotted rods as material to help him visualise and dream. He used this idea on the animals and it produced results. The rod became an instrument of victory. He became prosperous as a result.
The rod in the time of Moses crossing the red sea was a type of Christ. The rod once again is a type of Christ. The Word says He has knowledge of witty inventions. The ideas you have though they may sound foolish may be the breakthrough you need to move to the next level of greatness.
What are you placing before your eyes today? What are you seeing? Are you seeing the problems are the solutions? What divine idea are you allowing God to give you in order to change your circumstances? What is your speckled and spotted rod ? If Jacob had refused to follow his dream, what would have been the consequence?Follow your dream so you don’t live a life of regrets.
