Genesis 28:10-22, Psalm 91, Matthew 9: 18-26

The Lord is in this place.

Jacob was on the run. He stole his brother’s birthright and his brother wanted to kill him. So it was a weary, frightened man who went to sleep in the wilderness, and what happened? God happened. In this lonely state in a lonely place, God filled Jacob’s dreaming with overwhelming love and support. Had Jacob had this kind of dream before? Probably not, because his life had been full of other things. Now that he was empty, there was space for God’s voice. This is a story that belongs to us all.
