“I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendents the land on which you are lying. Your descendents will be like the dust of the earth, to the north and to the south. All peoples on the earth will be blessed through your offspring. I will be with you and 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.” – Genesis 28:13-15
The Lord appeared to Jacob in a dream. Jacob’s ladder was a staircase to heaven. Angels of God ascended and descended on it.
God is in our reach. In fact, He is with us and in us. His promises are true.
We worry because we cannot always see how powerful He is. He blesses us in times of trouble and in times of abundance. He is on our side.
A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. Jesus knew that. He doesn’t want us to focus on division. He asks us to love one another. He also asks us to love ourselves.
We all make mistakes, but He has paid the price for our sins. He cleanses us. He heals us. He blesses us. He goes with us wherever we go, and we can trust that He will always lead us in the right direction. It’s because of Him that we have hope for a better future. It’s because of Him that we are saved. Amen.
