By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau
in regard to their future.

Hebrews 11:20

Sometimes Isaac ‘dropped the ball’. Like all of us he made mistakes, yet he had faithfully followed Abraham’s footsteps. Despite his clouded vision, the blessing of the firstborn was transferred to Jacob by God. From Jacob came Judah, from Judah came the Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Even though we may be faint yet pursuing (Jud.8:4), God still uses men and women of faith to further his purposes.
