ANSWER TO PRAYER:  We have been earnestly praying over our grandson that the Lord would grant him a teachable spirit, and help him to understand his boundaries.  This is a life long lesson, as we each grow up and stretch our wings.  But without a teachable spirit, they are very hard lessons to learn. 


Shortly after I had been regularly praying over this, my little tike grandson arrives and runs into my teddy bear room.  He is learning one syllable words right now.  He smiles huge and throws his arms out and circles in the room, saying, “BEAR, BEAR, BEAR!”  His delight was ours too.  Then he stopped right in front of the cupboard door, and said, “NO.”  Then he walked over to the matching cupboard door and said, “NO.”  This was spoken very matter of factly without any sternness in his voice, or with any emphasis.  Just simple NO, as he stood in front of each door.  I shouted YES inside, I was so tickled at this wonderful answer to prayer.  I have only mentioned to him twice that he was not to open or play in those cupboards and he must have remembered and was honoring that. 


As I was pondering this precious parable today, the Lord reminded me of how much He loves His Jacobs and their zeal for His kingdom.  But He has been teaching Jacob about boundaries and how to respect His Word, and principals of scripture.  Today I was praying over His Jacobs in regards to this.  This afternoon, I turned with anointed hands to the following Word to Ponder: 




Jacob you have wrestled with Me for so long.  Oh zealous one, places where you have striven with man to obtain, you have striven with Me.  The blessings you have wanted, the validation you have sought, your provision and inheritance are Mine to give you. In your passion to find your destiny, I have brought you through many years to bring you through to your name change. You have endured much chastening by My hand and walked through much pain to have come to this place where you no longer wrestle or grasp.  I am so proud of you for being willing to let go of your strivings and walk into your place. I call you leader, ruler, prince with Me.  With your new name change, I will set that which was dislocated back into its place so that you shall no longer walk with a limp.  For I AM the God Who redeems all. 


Heb 12:10-13  NKJV

Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.


UPDATE CONFIRMATION 11/15/08: My webmaster chose the following graphic 3-4 months in advance to come out on the QW list on today’s date. I knew it was a confirmation to this above post about boundaries.
