“Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, You have troubled me by making me obnoxious among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites; and since I am few in number, they will gather themselves against me and kill me. I shall be destroyed, my household and I.”
This is a pretty sad chapter in the life of Jacob! First, his daughter is raped, then his kids go on a killing spree and all Jacob seems to be worried about is his life! The answer to his problems, and ours, is the LORD, and Jacob didn’t call out to Him not even once.
“In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, For You will answer me.”
Often times we forget the promises of God, His word is full of them, He will save us, deliver us and keep us!
“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
We all have issues going in our lives and around us! Our first call needs to be the LORD, when we rely upon ourselves or others, our problems can and do become major disasters! Today, let us call upon the LORD first and watch and see how He works it out!
Have a blessed day!
