Today's Reading: Genesis 17-28
Scripture: Genesis 28:16 "Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it."
Observation: Jacob is on the run because of something very wrong that he did. He had to bunk out in the open with a rock as his pillow and in this seemingly God forsaken place Jacob has an awesome encounter with God and God promises him that He will not leave him.
Application: Even when I've messed up big time and it may seems like there is no hope, there is because God will not leave me.
Prayer: Lord, I fail so many times. I don't understand how You can continue to care for me, but You do. Thank-You. Help me, and others like me, to realize that You never give up caring and You never leave.
