READ

Genesis 30


PONDER

And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest.”  Gen. 28:15.


DO we need journeying mercies? Here are choice ones—God’s presence and preservation. In all places we need both of these, and in all places we shall have them if we go at the call of duty, and not merely according to our own fancy. Why should we look upon removal to another country as a sorrowful necessity when it is laid upon us by the divine will? In all lands the believer is equally a pilgrim and a stranger; and yet in every region the Lord is his dwelling-place, even as he has been to his saints in all generations. We may miss the protection of an earthly monarch, but when God says, “I will keep thee,” we are in no real danger. This is a blessed passport for a traveller, and a heavenly escort for an emigrant.

Jacob had never left his father’s room before: he had been a mother’s boy, and not an adventurer like his brother. Yet he went abroad, and God went with him. He had little luggage, and no attendants; yet no prince ever journeyed with a nobler bodyguard. Even while he slept in the open field, angels watched over him, and the Lord God spoke to him. If the Lord bids us go, let us say with our Lord Jesus, “Arise, let us go hence.”


Spurgeon, C. H. (1834-1892)



PRAY

After a moment of quietness, let the Spirit of God lead you as you pray for 5 people who you would love to see become followers of Jesus Christ, or people who you know who have strayed from God. Name them before the Lord, asking God to reveal Himself to them, and that He would draw them in grace, mercy and love to trust and follow Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.


Close your prayer time with the Lord’s Prayer:


Our Father, who art in heaven, 

Hallowed be Thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. 

Thy will be done 

on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day 

our daily bread. 

And forgive us our debts, 

as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil. 

For Thine is the kingdom, 

and the power, and the glory, 

for ever. Amen.
