Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. Gen 28:10
Abraham was called out of Haran and was asked to go to a land which the Lord promised to give to His descendants. Now we see Abraham’s grandson, Jacob going back to the Haran, place where Abraham was called from or started from, to escape the anger of Esau and also to find a bride for himself. We know later after many years Jacob came back to the Promised Land. Does it look like what we are going through now; going back to the place we started from. Once we were lifted from miry clay and the pit, now again it looks like we have fallen back or slowly drifting. What does the Lord has to say?
Faith in God: “He had a dream in which he saw a stairway …There above it stood the LORD, and he said…. will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Gen 28:12-15. Remember Lord is reminding us, now we might be going through tough times, but Lord is watching and He will surely fulfill what He has promised to us.
Fear the Lord: “When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place..” Gen 28:16,17 Let us be very much aware Lord is with us, let us live in Holy fear. Conduct our lives in Godly fear. Fear of the Lord it is beginning of wisdom.
Prayer: Dear Lord; I know you will fulfill all the promises, you are great and awesome God. Thank you Lord, for you are watching over me. Amen.
