In the world but not of it

He is always with us…

“Surely the LORD is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!” Genesis 28:16

At this point in Jacob’s life he is still in limbo not yet realizing where the Lord is leading but he is about to discover that God has been with him all along.

How often have you looked back on your life and recalled those difficult moments, the times of great stress and can now see how the Lord was leading?

Hopefully you can say that you have seen God’s hand in it all but for some realizing that God was with them in that particular place seems hard to believe.

Even today, you may find yourself in a difficult marriage or job or some other situation that has consumed you. You may not have even considered that God is in that place with you and He has been using it to get your attention. It is during those times of adversity that we need to stop and see God in the surroundings.

As children of the Lord we have a wonderful promise given to us in Joshua 1:9…”be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

We are not walking this life alone. God desires to lead us but it may be us who do not desire to be led…
