A few weeks ago I was reading about Jacob’s journey back to his mom’s relatives.
God appears to him in a dream and when Jacob wakes up, he says, “Surely, God is in this place, and I didn’t know it! How awesome is this place!”
I love this passage. Jacob goes to sleep with his head on a rock. He’s not staying at some cute bed and breakfast in Italy. He’s just out in the wilderness with his head on a rock.
Do you ever think, My life is so dull. If only I were someplace exciting. Someplace fun. If only I had a life like …
But for each of us, “God is in this place!” No matter where we live. No matter what our daily life is like. No matter how dreary it is. God is in this place – so how AWESOME it is!
1. What does your day look like? What kinds of things do you have planned?
2. Who is God in the midst of your day? Think about some of His attributes and spend some time just praising Him for who He is. Remember the ways He has blessed you in the past and been there for you in difficult times and praise Him for that as well.
3. If you have God in the midst of your day – God who is the King of the Universe, the great I am, the King of all Kings – and He actually wants to spend the day with YOU, are you living in an AWESOME PLACE today??? Spend some time praising Him!!
Scripture Reference: Genesis 28:11-18
Question: What does your day look like today? What is one of your best memories of time spent with God?
