Genesis 49:20–21 (ESV)

Jacob Blesses His Sons

20    “Asher’s food shall be rich,

and he shall yield royal delicacies.

21    “Naphtali is a doe let loose

that bears beautiful fawns.


Asher and Naphtali both receive blessings over curses.  I think of both of them being in the food or food distribution business.  Asher will occupy an area that will be fertile… producing lots of good produce.  Now, Naphtali is more difficult to interpret.  It could be talking about food, or it can be talking about being set free (an independent spirit).  It could be talking about both. 


I pray: O Lord, even if I seek an independent spirit… help me to always keep you in my focus and to seek your ways.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
