Be Careful not To say Anything

Genesis 31:24 says’ Then God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream at night and said to him, “Be careful not to say anything to Jacob, either good or bad.”

th6C98L0DDWhen I read this verse something very powerful spoke to me and I pray it does the same to you. For you to get the whole meaning of this story you will have to go back and read the chapter before it. God gives a warning to Laban to be careful not to say anything to Jacob, either good or bad. Wow! do you know what that means? That means that if Laban even slipped up and said something God was going to deal with Laban. In other words God is saying Jacob belongs to me.

I don’t know about you but I believe Jesus says the same thing to others concerning you and I. Someone maybe an enemy maybe a friend is about to open his or her mouth and God has warned them to be very careful what you say about my child!

It’s one thing to say something bad about a person but to be warned for saying something good, wow God does not play when He is watching His children. Have a blessed Sunday.

  1. This was a great post! However, I couldn’t help noticing that my translation says something different in that chapter. Genesis 32:24 in the King James Version says “And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.” The bit about God telling Lebanon don’t speak therefore unto Jacob neither good or bad can be found in Genesis 31:24 in the King James version. I’m not sure about any other translation but that’s how my translation is organized.

    1. Thank you for letting me know that I typed the wrong chapter. I made the correct changes. As far as translations I have many ones I use. I have King James but this verse I didn’t use King James I used NIV but that is not important what translation I used.
