A VISIT ON YOUR BEHALF – Thu, Aug 31, 2017

Genesis 31:24 KJV

And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

Jacob and his entire household had deliberately left Laban’s house without informing him. They left with everything they had, a bit symbolic of Israel’s departure from Egypt.

But 3 days later Laban caught wind of the information and pursued them, just like Pharoah did in the account of Israel’s exit from Egypt. But something very remarkable happened in this situation: God appeared to Laban in a dream for the first time!

The man had never heard from God directly. In fact, he had smaller gods and used charms for protection. He didn’t worship Yahweh. But because his intention towards God’s own wasn’t clean, God stopped him in a vision in the night.

For your sake, God will appear in somebody else’s sleep without your knowledge, and turn things in your favour. He Will do this through the very people who wouldn’t want to see you there. He is God, He does what pleases Him.

Have a blessed day.
