Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” Genesis 28:16
Jacob had left home for the first time. He headed towards an unknown land filled with strangers.
On the way, he stopped for the night and slept. In a dream he saw a ladder where angels ascended and descended from heaven. God also reassured him of his inheritance and presence with him.
When he awakened, he realized God was still with him.
In his time many believed gods were territorial and did not stray from the mountains to the sea or from the jungle to the desert.
Jacob had left the territory of his family and his God and yet He is there!
God has no set territory and knows no boundaries. Sadly many people place a boundary on Him.
Likewise, some place a boundary on themselves declaring God off-limits in certain areas of their life.
Jacob discovered God would help him in his journey, to find a wife, and in prosperity.
Do not restrict the movements of God and you will discover much the same.
