Dearly Beloved in Christ! I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Genesis 28:15 , “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.”
From the above context we learn that God assured Jacob on his way to his uncle’s house, that he would be with him, and will watch over him, wherever he went. God also promised to bring him back to his father’s land. And said, that He would not leave him until He had done what He had promised him.” Isn’t it very encouraging for every child of God to be reminded so emphatically that the Lord is caring for us and watching over us no matter where we go or what we do and that He will be with us always and will certainly fulfil every promise and pledge that He has purposed towards us. Though this promise is clearly for the Lord’s chosen nation of Israel, by God, who neither slumbers nor sleeps, whose word is sure, whose promises are guaranteed, whose statutes are binding and whose covenant will never fail, it is also applicable to everyone of us, who believe in Him.
When God wants to make an important point, He often uses the word “BEHOLD” in the Scripture. Behold, I am with you! Behold! I will watch over you wherever you go! Behold! I will bring you back to this land! Behold! I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised! He is a God who keeps His promise. You can simply rely on him. What an amazing God we have! The God that stands fast on His promises to Israel is the same God that will honour His promises to everyone who call upon His name. God did what He had promised Jacob. God made Jacob, who went empty, with only a staff in his hand as a prosperous man in his uncles house and also brought him back safely with cattle and servants and all his children to his father’s land Canaan.
Therefore be glad and rejoice in the Lord for we have a God Who has promised to watch over us, to protect us, provide for us, keep us and cherish us. He will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. You have a Saviour Who gave His own life for you. So, will He not provide you with a good job, or a good life partner, or create a way for you to go abroad. What is your desire, ask God. He will fulfil your desire at the appointed time. He will solve all your family problems. He will open ways and means for you to pay back all your loans and clear all your debts. He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think. Have you been a failure in your life, well surrender to God like Jacob, The Lord of Israel will make you to flourish in your business and in all the work of your hand. He will neither leave you nor, forsake you. He will exalt you, for He is a God who raises the poor out of the dust, And lifts the needy out of the ash heap. Trust Him and you shall prosper. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, We thank you, for the truth of Your word and Your never-failing promises which you have made to your children. Help us to be faithful in our services to You, For you are, our wonderful and faithful God and Father. May we like Jacob surrender our lives to God, So that God will provide us our food and shelter and also guard us wherever we go.
