Jacob Received Isaac’s Blessing through Deceit

Genesis 27:5-10, 18-19, 21-29 NRSV

So he came near and kissed him; and he smelled the smell of his garments, and blessed him, and said, “Ah, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field that the Lord has blessed. (Genesis 27:27)

Reflect on a time characterized by deception. How did it end; how did God move in that situation?
