“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.” Isa 43:1

Jacob means deceiver, he deceived his brother and got his birthright, he deceived his father and got blessing. After this he ran away to his uncles home. There the story starts Jacob was cheated in his marriage, he was ask to serve 14 years to get Rachel. Afterwards he started thinking to come back to his fathers house, but was afraid of his brother Esau . That previous night he met God strived wrestled with God and got true blessing. This time with blessing  God renamed him as Israel.  Means for as prince hast thou power with God and with men , and hast prevailed.- Gen 33:28 .

Even we may have some unsanctified natures which God doesn’t like it. Hence before God bless us, he likes to correct our character. Jacob fully submitted to God. Hence God gave him a new name and blessed him. When we also submit to God completely , He will correct us and bless us. Blessing means not only material blessing but eternal blessing. Finally God says thou art mine. Only after naming him Israel God calls him his own. Let god give us grace so that we can get closer to God and submit to God, to be called “thou art mine!.”
