Esau’s Stew.

Doesn’t the story of Esau fill you with indignation?

How could he possibly exchange his birthright for a bowl of stew???

Esau’s stew in this context is anything that causes you to give up your birth-right or in this case; your Queen-Right!

Don’t lose your Queen-Right!

“Once when Jacob was cooking stew, Esau came in from the field, and he was exhausted. And Esau said to Jacob, “Let me eat some of that red stew for I am exhausted! Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright now.” Esau said, “I am about to die; of what use is a birthright to me?” Jacob said, “Swear to me now.” So he swore to him and sold his birthright to Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank and rose and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.” (ESV Genesis 25:29-34)

Shocking, right?

And yet, truth is we tend to exchange our right as children of God for things even more demeaning than a bowl of stew.

That man you have been going after; tears running down your face, nostrils dripping with snot, hugging his legs and begging him not to leave you; how does that make you feel, Queen?

Less queenly, right?

Don’t lose your Queen-Right!

Don’t lose your Queen-Right to anyone’s bowl of stew… to anything that anyone will do that will make you feel you are not enough; to anyone or anything whose aroma floods your nostrils and causes you to hunger for something or to turn away from what is your right!

This could easily have been dubbed “Jacob’s stew” which is the thing to which one can use to get his way in life; however; in Esau’s case; the stew now represents his shame- it represents his weakness. It represents that which he gave up his destiny for.

What bowl of stew is being dangled in front of you Queen?

Is it that job which causes you to denounce your faith?

That married man, whose car keys he dangles in front of you, to lead you, a single woman, to his bed?

Or chasing after that person although he treats you like dung but because he’s a public figure you don’t mind giving up your Queen’s worth for him?

Think again Queen.

Queen Esther could easily have given up her destiny for a bowl of stew as well! Her bowl of stew could have been the comfort of the palace! See how relaxed she was in the palace until she rose up to see through the bowl of stew of Haman! To see through the pretence of Haman! So that, remembering her right as a Queen; she could gladly say,

“… If I perish; I perish.” (ESV Esther 4:16)

Rather give your rights over to God than to the devil, Queen!

Don’t lose your Queen-Right!

God alone dishes out the best kind of stew:

You are welcome to join in on my chicken stew (one of the many ways to my kings heart, lol)

In this journey of Queen Esther Preparation, prepare not to go down any path that will cause you to hand over your Queenly rights to anyone that sees you otherwise!

God’s stew is sure to add more worth to you as a Queen!

Don’t lose your Queen-Right!

    Great post! I won’t lose my Queen-Right to anyone who dangles anything that looks yummy but takes me off my course. Bless you!
