Can we overcome our fears and trust in God as God leads us in life?
Jacob was afraid about his future journey but God assured him he would not be alone. God would be with Jacob. And so Jacob went down to Egypt comforted knowing with God everything will be well.
Like Jacob, we too may be afraid of following God’s path. We may be pulled out of our comfort zone and introduced to new experiences that may make us scared. But we must learn in our hearts that God is with us. And that is all we need to move on forward.
With God walking with us what evil can prosper? As long as we lean on God in prayer, in study, and in our focus we will gain the strength to overcome any obstacle. All we need to do is keep holding on to God.
Where is God leading us today? To reach out to someone or begin a new journey? Can we make space to hear God telling us that God will be with us from beginning to end? Let us gain the courage like Jacob to continue on.
