Jacob's God

Description

You can’t claim a promise unless you’ve entered God’s covenant.

How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the LORD his God…(Psalm 146:5)

It was one of those jarring phone calls a pastor occasionally receives. “My daughter’s in jail,” the distraught mother said. “I want you to go and talk with her!” I asked her to tell me the story. The daughter was 22 years old and had been raised in a home with no spiritual background, no concept of Christ. “I’ve always heard if you train up a child in the way she should go it would turn out alright,” the mother said. But the problem is you can’t claim a promise unless you’ve entered God’s covenant. Jacob’s God becomes your hope only when He is your Lord.
