Esau sold his birthright, his inheritance to his brother Jacob for a bowl of stew. He eventually regrets that decision and hates Jacob so much that he wants to kill him! Carrying that heaviness around in your heart for so long can cause you to feel depressed, unmotivated, discouraged, and defeated. We must take some time to release those inner battles to God. Seek and receive His wisdom and guidance on how to handle situations like this.
Sometimes we may find ourselves making a deal, decision, or spontaneous choice that puts us in a very vulnerable situation. When these times happen, we must remember that God is our fortress, protector, and the one who can cleanse our minds of wanting to retaliate, but forgive instead. This will give God the access He needs to teach us and/or the person in question, a lesson.
