Bottom Line: The best stories involve the b-team, brokenness, and the birth of something better.
Jacob was left running scared from his enraged brother - fearing for his life. He knew he had blown it, was all alone, and with only a rock to rest his head on, and that’s where he really experienced God. Jacob was so amazed that God met him there that he exclaimed, “God is in this place—truly. And I didn’t even know it!” The scriptures are filled with terribly ordinary characters. If they are extraordinary it might be most for making extraordinarily bad decisions. Good thing God is in the business of blessing people just like Jacob - just like you and me.
Scripture: Genesis 27, 28, 32; Psalm 139, John 1 & 5.
