You have the power to influence the situation, relationships, and things you want to experience in your life, because God placed you there. You can decide what you want in your life and out of your life. All these start from taking a stand to be accountable for your generation and for your people.
You have been accountable for the very situation you are in right now. Being accountable is not a conclusion from past observations; it’s a stand, a declaration you make for yourself so you can take responsibility and accountability for your thoughts, words, actions, and circumstances.
Rebekah held herself accountable for her son. She unknowingly worked for the Lord. She stood in the gap for Jacob. Even if Jacob’s early life may have been enveloped by deceit, Rebekah’s example shows that as you stand accountable for your life and for the people around you, the future will be entirely different. God had different plans for Jacob. He even changed Jacob’s name to Israel in a personal encounter with him.
5 Now Rebekah was listening when Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game and bring it, 6 Rebekah said to her son Jacob, “I heard your father say to your brother Esau, 7 ‘Bring me game, and prepare for me savory food to eat, that I may bless you before the Lord before I die.’ 8 Now therefore, my son, obey my word as I command you. 9 Go to the flock, and get me two choice kids, so that I may prepare from them savory food for your father, such as he likes; 10 and you shall take it to your father to eat, so that he may bless you before he dies.” 11 But Jacob said to his mother Rebekah, “Look, my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I am a man of smooth skin. 12 Perhaps my father will feel me, and I shall seem to be mocking him, and bring a curse on myself and not a blessing.” 13 His mother said to him, “Let your curse be on me, my son; only obey my word, and go, get them for me.”
(Genesis 27:5-13, NRSV)
Rebekah interceded for her son’s future. She took a stand to be accountable for something that was bigger than her. Similarly, if we take a step back and see the bigger picture, we will see how God’s hand orchestrated Israel’s destiny and Rebekah was indeed someone He used for His purpose.
Many believers cry out that they are in lack. They believe they are the ones who need help. They complain that they cannot make both ends meet. They call out to God and ask Him why He does not provide like He said He would. But if you think about it, God has already provided. God has given them the ability to produce wealth (Deut. 8:18), yet they live in lack.
The underlying reason behind this is that they do not associate this God-given power to themselves. They refuse to contribute. They reject their part in society and focus only on their own needs. They insist on not being able to produce wealth with a poverty mentality.
