S – “We must get up and go to Bethel. I will build an altar there to the God who answered me in my day of distress. He has been with me everywhere I have gone.”  Genesis 35:3 CSB

O – After the journey of leaving his parents, living under Laban’s authority, and reconciling with Esau, Jacob remembers that he made a vow to God.  He goes back to the place but makes the statement that God has been with him everywhere.  God fulfilled his part of the vow and now it is Jacob’s turn to do his part.  A strong point to recognize is that God goes with us everywhere – the good and the bad.  God is faithful to his word and promises.  We need to do our part.

A – I need to have faith in God’s purposes, resolve in his promises and courage to walk out what the Holy Spirit leads me to do.

R – Lord, help me to do this.
