My dearly beloved brothers and sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Genesis 28:15, “And behold I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places wither thou goes and will bring thee again into this land, for I will not leave thee until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.” God is promising this assurance for you today.
Jacob was left alone to face the challenges in life after he was sent away by Isaac His father and Rebecca his mother from the land of Canaan to the land of Paddan Aram. This is what God did for Jacob while he was moving to his uncle’s place. God protected Jacob from wild beasts of prey, in lonesome places, through which he might travel, from thieves and robbers, to whom he might be exposed. Even from his own brother Easu and uncle Laban. Even now, God is able, to perform all things perfectly for you.
Our God is a God of promise. If he has promised you something He will surely fulfill it in your life. He said to Jacob “I am with you, and will watch over you wherever you go.” He is a God who takes care of you. He says, cast your cares upon the Lord for He cares for you. He will never leave you nor will He forsake you. The Lord will personally go ahead of you. Therefore, do not be afraid and do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. For through God, you will do valiantly. For through Him you shall do victoriously.
My dear brothers and sisters, wherever we are, we are safe, if we have Gods favorable presence with us. Jacob had such a favor from God. Whom God loves, He never leaves. This promise is sure to all the children of God. The Lord was with Jacob, as He had promised and He caused him to return back to Canaan to his father’s house from Paddan Aram. The Bible says, ‘Those that are entitled to peculiar favors must be a peculiar people.’
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Daniel, Joseph and Job, were some of the most peculiar people during Bible times. We see that all God’s children are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people. You should praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. God watches over you wherever you go. Do not be afraid.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord I thank you for keeping a watch over my children. Help them to hold on to Your hands and walk through their dreary path. Never leave them alone. Teach them to throw off everything that hinders their closeness with God. Sometimes they trip and stumble every time they try to draw closer to the. Therefore I pray that You guard their steps and enable them to approach You fearlessly. In Jesus name we pray.
