And the Lord said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee (Gen. 31:3).
Although Jacob's relationship with his uncle/father-in-law Laban had been cordial on the surface, there had always been an undercurrent of tension. As the years passed and Jacob's prosperity in the Lord grew, so too did the envy and hostility of Laban and his sons. They believed that Jacob had employed unfair manipulation to gain their father's riches. Jacob recognized the change in the attitudes of those around him, but he did not panic or try to figure out his own solution. Instead, he trusted in the guidance and protection of the Lord. Only when the Lord said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers, did Jacob take any action. Without giving Laban any notice, Jacob departed, taking his family and livestock with him.
The ups and downs of Jacob's life did not end there either. Read more of these challenges in Genesis 31-35.
How often have we set our heart to do God's will only to discover how weak and insufficient we are? While alone we may have reason to fear, with God at our side we can accomplish anything! As long as we are willing to fight to remain in His will, then His blessing on our life is assured.
That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man (Eph. 3:16).
