When God speaks and we listen and follow His way – doing what He spoke – that’s when we become free. God goes before us clearing the way. His protective hand is upon us; no one and nothing can touch us – as seen here in the life of Jacob. Praise the Lord for His mighty protection and provision.
Note: It wasn’t just Jacob that God was protecting, it was Jacob plus his family, relatives, and those who worked for him.
Our actions, what we do, will definitely affect/effect our families, relatives, and all those around us.
I like what Joshua said when he was put in charge of a multitude of people, “As for me and my house we will serve the Living God.” Joshua 24:15
Lord, open our eyes to see the wonderful things in Your Word.
