What's On My Mind: JESUS IS NEAR!
Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it. (Genesis 28:16)
As Jacob slept, the Lord came to him in a dream and said, "I am with you and will keep you wherever you go. . . ; for I will not leave you" (v.15). When he awoke, he knew that he had heard from God, and said, "Surely the LORD is in this place" (v.16). Confident of God's presence, he committed himself to following Him with his life (vv.20-21).
If we have received Jesus as our Savior (John 1:12), we can be confident and take comfort in the truth that He is always present with us (Heb. 13:5). Like Jacob, may our response to His love be wholehearted devotion.
Thank You, Lord, for walking with us every day. You are our guardian, friend, and guide. May we sense Your loving presence and always know that You are close by our side. Amen.
OUR LOVING GOD IS ALWAYS NEAR--FOREVER BY OUR SIDE.
