In the Desert Places

Jun 27, 2022

Today's Scripture

Genesis 28:16, NIV
When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, "Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it."

Today's Word

When Jacob was a young man, he was a deceiver. You would think that God wouldn't have anything to do with him. But God keeps working with us and showing us His mercy. One night while Jacob was on a long journey through the desert and in a hard place, I'm sure he thought that God had forgotten about him. While he was sleeping, he had a dream in which he saw the Lord standing at the top of a huge staircase and saying, "Jacob, I will protect you wherever you go. I will be with you continually until I give you everything that I have promised." When Jacob woke up, he was in awe.

God was showing us that He's the God of desert places, of lonely times, of difficult seasons. He's right there with you when you feel alone, forgotten, and discouraged. Suddenly, the heavens will open up, and God will make things happen that you couldn't make happen. He's not going to stop until He's given you everything that He's promised.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You for loving me so much that at times, You take me into a desert place to show me who You are. Thank You that no matter where I go or what I go through, You are always here with me. I believe You are going to bring me into everything You've promised. In Jesus' Name, Amen
