Tonight's devotion is about Jacob's dream......Jacob was kinda on the run as he had not been the nicest of people and it was in his best interest to run away......So one night, Jacob fell asleep on a stone. He had a special dream.....where in the dream, he watched angels going up and down a ladder with God standing at the top. God reminded him of His promise to Jacob's grandfather (Abram) and father (Isaac). Those promises were meant for him too......promises of blessings and protection. He poured oil on the stone that he slept on, and declared that the place where it was set was now the House of God.....he also made his commitment to give God his first fruits
(tithing~a tenth of everything God gave him)

What's more, I will be with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. I will someday bring you safely back to this land. I will be with you constantly until I have finished giving you everything I have promised.~Genesis 28:15

I always love reading about Jacob, because it makes me feel like there's hope for me.
