God made a pretty incredible promise to Jacob as Jacob was leaving his home and traveling to a place he’d never been. We all can relate to Jacob’s situation. We all go through seasons of going places, either physically or situationally, that we’ve never been. It’s in these seasons that the promise God made to Jacob resonates the loudest. Here’s what God said: “I will not leave you until I have done what I promised you.” (Gen. 28:15)
God’s promise to be with us is a promise that echoes from here through the rest of the biblical narrative—and it’s a promise in which we all can rest.
