There above it stood the LORD, and he said: “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.”- Gen. 28:13.

Today I want to bring to you hope that will sustain your faith in the promises of God.

Jacob the man being spoken about in the text was burdened with many problems. First, his family background did not allow first borns to inherit their fathers. Secondly, he was running away from his brother Essau who was after his life because he had cheated his brother out of his blessings. In his pursuit to save his life, he decided to rest because the sun had set. He took a stone to rest on then God appeared to him in a dream and established a covenant with him.

Is it not interesting how God can find us in our lowest state? In times when we are rejected by men and we have no hope and everything seems to be working against us, that is when God will show up for you. God is sovereign and He knows what we need at every point in time. Do not give up yet. Do not think that God has forgotten about your case. I have come to remind you that the plans God has for you are plans of good and not of evil to bring you to an expected end.

Today I pray for you that just like Jacob, you will have an encounter with God this week. God will show up for you when all men have failed you. Have a great week.

Shalom.
