Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.
Genesis 28:16‬ ‭(NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬)‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬


Life has its ups and downs and, sometimes, when in the down times, we temporarily forget all the good things that God has done for us in the past. We are quick to forget the times we were in need and God came through, or the times we needed solutions to our problems and He supplied wisdom.

It is easy to conveniently focus on the issue or challenge at hand and blame God for being slow or for not answering our prayers. Jacob had his fears about his mission and was, like most of us, pre-occupied by it. He wasn't sure if God was with him or interested in his challenge at hand. God had to open his eyes to see the activity going on behind the scenes for him to appreciate the fact that God was actually with him and working on his behalf.

You don't have to dream or see visions like Jacob did to believe. The Bible says that the just shall live by faith. That you haven't seen the results yet does not mean God is not with you. Be rest assured that He is working behind the scenes all the time for you.

Beloved, as you keep holding onto your confessions of faith and putting actions to it, God will cause you to laugh before this year is over. Amen!
