Present and Answering
Today's reading: Genesis 35:1-15
God once again instructs Jacob to move his family and possessions, and Jacob obediently responds. This time the destination is Bethel, the place where Jacob encountered God in a dream on his journey to his mother Rebekah's homeland (Genesis 28).
Jacob's demeanor and his attitude toward God encouraged me today. I was especially moved by his verbal recognition and praise of God as being his ever--present help. "Then let us arise and go up to Bethel, so that I may make there an altar to the God who answers me in the day of my distress and has been with me wherever I have gone."
When you start out each day, do you thinking about and recognize that God is with you wherever you go? Why is this important? What's one example of how God has been a present and answering God to you? Tami
