Jacob’s flaws are hard to miss—but we’re often eager to overlook them because we see his faults mirrored in ourselves. We understand why Jacob struggled to believe God was for him—because sometimes we do, too. Despite Jacob’s refusal to recognize God’s hand, God was at work, giving Jacob children and thus keeping the promises He made to Abraham. And through it all, God was preparing Jacob for a time when he would fully recognize His presence.
