GOD PAUSE: I was looking recently at a very critical time in Jacob's life when he needed to realize that God was with him. So the Lord gave him a dream to encourage him. And he tells him in Genesis 28:15 :Know I AM with you, and I will watch over you no matter where you go.” Yes, Jacob had made some mistakes. He had gone down a road that was not best for him. And he was like on the run. But Jacob needed to know that God was still there. Jacob's mess-ups didn't mess up God. It was still possible for him to experience God being real. Dear Lord, my friend and I need that assurance --- to know you are always with us. Watching over us. Feeling your nearness. That's always your heart. May we respond to it. Amen.
