"Then Jacob prayed, 'O God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, Lord, you who said to me," Go back to your country and your relatives, and I will make you prosper," I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness you have shown your servant. I had only my staff when I crossed this Jordan, but now I have become two camps. Save me, I pray, from the hand of my brother Esau, for I am afraid he will come and attack me, and also the mothers with their children. But you have said, 'I will surely make you prosper and will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.'"
~ Genesis 32:9-12
Jacob now feels tbe weight of all he has done and seeks Gods protection and provision reminding God of His promises. At this point Jacob has 11 sons and at least 1 daughter. He is set to be a mighty nation but God isn't finished with him yet. Again we see faith grow as Jacob makes the steps needed to pursue peace with his brother Esau.
We too can freely call on God reminding Him of His promises and trust that He really doesn't need the reminder. He knows we need to say it over and over to help us believe in them. So today seek out God's will for you. Find His promises and ask Him to guide you. He will help you. He is with you. ❤
