Genesis 32: Trusting God’s Promises

*These notes come from Bob Deffinbaugh’s study on Genesis 32 at
  • Jacob sought to let Esau know that he had become prosperous and was not coming back to take Esau’s wealth
  • Jacob’s prayer is the first one recorded in Genesis
  • God not Esau opposed Jacob’s entrance into Canaan
  • Moses did not tell us God could not overcome Jacob only that he did not
  • Jacob realized only important thing was to be blessed by God
  • God’s statement was a prophetic announcement
  • The word of God was the only claim Jacob had upon God
  • Cling to God and trust Him to do as He has promised for the blessing of eternal life
