Jacob was on the run and ran right into God!
His life was a mess. Bad choices left him to living on the run.
Nonetheless God met him where he was at and spoke encouragement into his circumstances.
God has 4 things for us as well:
1. Blessing (expect the best)
2. Companionship (he is with us)
3. Protection (there will be danger)
4. Safe return (we will make it)
God’s got this!
“What’s more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you.” Genesis 28:15 NLT
And then verse 16 …
“Then “____________” awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!” Genesis 28:16 NLT
YUP! God is at work in all the mess!
