This Week’s Message:
I am El (Mighty God) the God (Elohiym–the One True God, Jehovah) fear not.
In this verse God is telling Jacob three things:
- that he should not fear because He, God, is the same God that Jacob’s father, Isaac knew, loved, trusted and followed. God was in a sense telling Jacob to recall how He, God, had always been there for Jacob and his father Isaac in the past and that he would always be there now for Jacob.
- God was telling Jacob where to go in the present time–He was giving Jacob direction for his life.
- God was telling Jacob what He was going to do for him in the future. God was promising Jacob the same thing He had promised his father, Isaac.
God was showing Jacob He was there for him in the present just as He had been in the past and would be in the future. Jacob should not fear, but just trust God.
I feel this verse has a lot to teach us today. I feel God could also be speaking this to us believers as well. He is saying “Trust Me” I am Mighty God, the One True God, Jehovah, have no fear, I will direct your paths, I will show you where to go. I have plans for you for the future and they are good plans.
Let’s memorize this verse and repeat it to ourselves daily as a reminder that God is with us, just as He was with Jacob.
Blessings to you daily,
