"Then the Lord said to Jacob, 'Go back to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, and I will be with you.'"
~Genesis 31:3
It is time for Jacob to return to his family home. Isaac and Rebekah are both dead now so Jacob is returning to his brother Esau. The same man who he fled from 20 years before in concern for his life. This would be a test of his courage.
But God has promised to make him a mighty nation and to give him these lands he is returning to.
God has promise to be with Jacob and go before him.
God has promised us to be not just with us but in those who believe in Him for salvation. The Christian will face situations that require courage and faith, but he or she is never left to face it alone. Turn first to God in prayer. Ask Him for His plan, His way and His strength. He will give you the bonus of His peace.
It may take years for the results you hope for or prehaps not the way you want or expect but it will come.
Praise Him now for His provision. And wait and see the Lord's deliverance and mercy.
