Genesis 28:15 – His Promises #104
The story of Jacob running from Esau is revealed throughout Genesis 28. In Genesis 28:15, the Lord speaks the following words to Jacob, “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
The Lord met Jacob one-on-one and reminded Jacob that He was the God of both of his fathers, Abraham and Isaac. God then told Jacob he would inherit the land — which is the same promise He had already made to Abraham and Isaac. As Abraham’s descendants, this promise applies to us as well.
Scripture is full of all the promises God has made to you. He has promised you in this verse not only that you will inherit the land, but that He will never leave you. No matter what happens or where you are – He will watch over you. Whether your wait is a few minutes or your wait is several years long, He is with you every step of the way. He will bring you the patience to endure the wait and the strength for you to persevere through.
Whatever He has promised you, He will do. He will carry you through until He completes His work. He never changes His mind or revokes a promise. Trust Him while you wait and believe that He always keeps His word. Declare that He is faithful and He has good things in store for you.
