A FAITHFUL GOD

prayer 2

GENESIS     28   IN   FOCUS

 

“I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac.

THINK   ABOUT IT

how do we get blessings?

How faithful is God to us?

What must we do to attract the blessings of God?

How do you regard your dreams?

How eager are we to honor the presence of God with us?

 

We live in a world full of afflictions. Life presents us with different hurdles each day. We try with the very atom of our strength to do what we must do but, least do we get returns that commensurate our efforts and equalize our satisfaction. We grow weary each day. Sometimes, it all seems like there is no helper to see us through the afflictions of life, but God is a faithful God. His mercies endure forever.

God was with Abraham. He blessed him (Abraham) and promised to be with his descendants and truly He was with Isaac and the son of Isaac, Jacob.

It may seem quite ironical to notice how people God’s eyes are upon go through the twist and turns of life. One could have expected that the chosen ones of God would never face difficulty in life. God is faithful to His children regardless of their mistakes as a result of their choices and what they go through.

As it was in the days of Abraham, so it is today. God reveals mysteries to us through dreams. Jacob had a dream and saw the presence of God. We must not take our dreams for granted. God provides us with answers to our daily needs through dreams but we do neglect them and yet seek for what we still have.

‘He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 There above it[c] stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.

God is still a faithful God. He is still the God who provides. He is still the God who shows and reveals though dreams. Only be vigilant, have faith, trust and obey. Jacob never did take his dream for granted. He honored the presence of God with all seriousness ‘

Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it. 19 He called that place Bethel,[e] though the city used to be called Luz.20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear 21 so that I return safely to my father’s household, then the Lord[f] will be my God 22 and[g] this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth.”

PONDER:   Dreams are important, mind your dream.

HYMN

  • What a friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
    Oh, what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer!

 

  • Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged—
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful,
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
