Advent Day 6

Genesis 28: 1‐17

“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 un􀆟l I have done what I have promised you.”

God continues His plan through Isaac’s son Jacob. We find Jacob travelling alone, not expec􀆟ng to see or hear anything of God. He thinks God is back at home with his parents. In his dream, he learns that God is also traveling with him and that God will continue to be with him.

Dear God, when Jacob faced conflict he relied on his own resources rather than going to You. Like Jacob, You have told us that You are with us wherever we go, even when we feel alone. Help us to trust in You instead of ourselves. Amen.
