Unrelenting, Unshakable, Unwavering Love

Today’s reading from Genesis reads like a good old fashioned reality tv show.  After requiring Jacob to work seven years for his younger daughter’s hand in marriage, Laban substituted his older daughter Leah-and Jacob didn’t discover the deception until the morning after his wedding night.  Some men would have given up. Jacob on the other…

Your Dreams and God’s Promises

This week in our Gospel Project teachings, we come to Jacob’s ladder and a dream that would not ever be forgotten.  Genesis 28 is about God using a dream to remind Jacob that He really does keep His promises.  We don’t always pay attention to what happens while we sleep, but sometimes even our dreams…

God is a Promise Keeper

Have you ever been the victim of a broken promise?  On the other side of things, have there been times when you have been the one to break a promise?  Pain is deep and real in either scenario. We might even feel from time to time that God Himself has broken His promise to us…
