Genesis 28:16 NKJV - "Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, 'Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it."
Now, what Jacob experienced that night on his way to his Uncle Laban, is an experience probably every Christian has on a daily basis! They are oblivious to the presence of Almighty God in the very room where they are! I know, as a pastor, I'd like to think that even people in the pew who are "resting their eyes" don't recognize that God is in their midst! They don't have a clue just how close God is and how much He has to say to them if they'd only stay awake!!
Christian, as you read this commentary, stop for a moment and consider the fact that the same Almighty God who appeared to Jacob long ago is right there with you! I'm recognizing the same thing as I type. What a shame on all of us that we don't stop and just say, "Dear God, as you are right here with me, do you have something to say to my heart?" It might surprise you how He will answer that!
