“I am 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 you. When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, ‘Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.'” Genesis 28:15-16
So neat that even when we feel alone- when we feel like we are single-handedly taking on this world- God is with us. He is for us. He is watching over us and will accomplish that which He said He would do. He will fulfill the promises He has made to us. He is the God who does exceedingly, abundantly more than all we can ask or imagine. I love Jacob’s response to the Lord. It echoes the cry of my heart in those circumstances. It’s like saying, ” Oh there you are, Lord. I didn’t realize You would really stay through it all.” Even when we are not aware of His presence, He is there, in every sense of the word.
