Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth of Your Word and Your never-failing promises both to Israel and the Church. Thank You for this peep into Jacob's dream in which he saw a stairway to heaven and for the blessed promise You gave him that all peoples of the earth would be blessed by his descendants and that You would not leave him or forsake him. May I be faithful in my service to You, my wonderful faithful God and Father, knowing that You will never leave me or forsake me. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, there are so many lessons for me to learn through the life of Jacob. I pray that I would not become so familiar with Bible stories, that I fail to learn the deeper lessons they teach and apply them to my life. Teach me Your will, I pray, and I ask that You would align my will to Your will so that I only say and do those things that are pleasing in Your sight. Keep me also from expressing unbelief in Your Word by trying to sort out my own problems in my way, rather than trusting You to fulfil all that You have purposed. Thank You, Father, that You work all things together for good, even when we stray from the path of righteousness. Keep the eyes of my heart looking to Jesus. This I ask for His name's sake, AMEN.
