On Sunday we examined the account of Jacob's flight from Laban and once again saw the reassuring truth that God sovereign power overcomes oppression, and His grace and mercy prevail over the failures of His people. Our salvation ultimately rests not on our power, but on His. Not on our merit, but on Christs. What a source of courage and comfort for followers of Jesus! Let's trust and obey the faithful God of promise and grace!
