Many people in the world feel insecure. They feel that they are always alone and unprotected. But the Bible tells us that God protects people who love and obey Him.

Yesterday we learned that Jacob tricked Esau and received his father’s special blessing. So Jacob prepared to leave his home and travel to the place where his mother’s relatives lived.

As Jacob was traveling, he stopped for the night. While he was sleeping, he had a dream. Jacob dreamed there was a ladder on the ground that reached up to heaven. God’s angels were going up and down the ladder. Then Jacob saw God standing by the ladder.

God talked to Jacob. He told him He would give him land and many descendants. In Genesis 28:15 we read what else God told Jacob. “I am with you, and I will protect you everywhere you go. I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I promised.”

Jacob loved and served God all his life. And God took care of Jacob. I hope that you will love and serve God, too. Then God will always be with you and protect you.
