I’ve been reading quite a bit about Jacob in the last few weeks. He was a trickster but as we see his life develop, Jacob becomes who God intended him to be despite his mistakes. In this chapter we read about Jacob’s dream with the ladder. It says that angels where ascending and descending into heaven. The Bible tells us that the Lord spoke to Jacob from the top of the ladder, promising him the land that Abraham and Issac were given.
“Let us strive to know the Lord. His appearance is as sure as the dawn. He will come to us like the rain, like the spring showers that water the land.” Hosea 6:3
