1/21/2018 Genesis Chapters 27-29
I think we are all familiar with “Jacob’s Ladder” from the old Negro spiritual we often sang as children. But do we reflect on when Jacob’s ladder appeared?
Reading back in Chapter 27:42-43 we see that Jacob was on his journey not to “sight-see” but to escape from the murderous plot of his brother, Esau. As we will continue to see in many of our readings, the Lord is present at all times but it is at times of stress and trial that even the Patriarchs see the need to reach out to Him.
