Isaac, Rebekah, Esau and Jacob all make sinful choices over the issue of Isaac’s blessing yet God still carries forward His purposes, previously announced in prophecy.

We see the comfort of God’s sovereign purposes - that He is able to use even our sinful choices to bring about a good end. This does not excuse our sin but does show us the great glory and love of our God, and assures us that even when we stumble and fall we will not change His purposes to save us and perfect us in Christ.
