Genesis 3:1-4 (The Message)
1-4 Jacob looked up and saw Esau coming with his four hundred men. He divided the children between Leah and Rachel and the two maidservants. He put the maidservants out in front, Leah and her children next, and Rachel and Joseph last. He led the way and, as he approached his brother, bowed seven times, honoring his brother. But Esau ran up and embraced him, held him tight and kissed him. And they both wept.

Jacob returns to his homeland and sees Esau his brother approaching with 400 men. Worried about Esau�s intent he splits up his servants and family. When Jacob last saw Esau, Esau was angry with Joseph for taking his birthright from their father. Now many years later Esau runs up to his brother Jacob, hugs him tight, welcomes him with a kiss and both men weep over their joyful reunion. In Esau�s heart was forgiveness and it touched Jacob deeply.

Jacob had a close relationship with God. Through Jacob�s life we see where God has helped him along the way. Proverbs 16:7 says, �When a man�s ways please the Lord he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.� God blessed the reunion of Jacob and Esau in that it was a reunion of joy instead of sadness. God has the hearts of men in His hand can turn them for the benefit and good of others. In the case of Esau and Jacob we see that God has given Esau the ability to be at peace with Jacob and Jacob to be at peace with Esau. Pray if there are those you harbor ill feelings towards or them towards you that God might reconcile the differences and bring about peace in your life.
