WED: "A Messy Situation"
Jacob is running from his brother Esau and he’s fleeing from Beersheba, 450-miles to the north, to his mother’s brother (Laban) in Haran. On the first night of his journey God appeared to him in a dream. Jacob responds to God’s promises by committing to honoring God with all of his increase. It’s such a beautiful thing when a person begins to grow in the Lord and the lights come on. That’s what’s happening to Jacob when he’s 77 years old! It’s no longer his families faith, now it’s his faith.
