Loneliness and the God Who is With Us

Genesis 28:10-22

April 10, 2021 • Tim Cain

Loneliness is a condition that all of us have faced at various times in our lives. In Genesis 28 Jacob finds himself totally alone as he flees the home that he loved in order to escape the anger of his older brother. In the midst of Jacob's loneliness God appeared to him in a dream and revealed himself to be exactly what Jacob needed at that time. In this story we will see some amazing truths about God, and with Jacob, I believe we will find that the God who has revealed himself to us continues to be exactly what his people need today.
