  • Genesis 31:13 “I know what Laban’s been doing to you. I’m the God of Bethel where you consecrated a pillar and made a vow to me. Now be on your way, get out of this place, go home to your birthplace.’”
  • Genesis 31:17 Jacob did it.

  • Genesis 33:1-4 Jacob looked up and saw Esau coming with his four hundred men. He led the way and, as he approached his brother, bowed seven times, honouring his brother. But Esau ran up and embraced him, held him tight and kissed him. And they both wept.

A PRAYER OF FAITH AND ACTION – Goyo Hildago

Lord, Help Me

Be PREPARED,        But not ANXIOUS.

Be AWARE,            But not DESPERATE.

Be VIGILANT,        But not in FEAR.

Be JOYFUL,            But not CLUELESS.

Be FAITHFUL,        But not CARELESS.

LORD, BE MY HOPE AND STRENGTH!

Discerning Reflection: 

  1. What do I still need to “wrestle” with God over? 
  2. Do I have doubts that I haven’t sought an answer to? 
  3. What can I do today to make God more real in my life than ever before?
