My Beloved, God is at work in us constantly even when we are asleep. You are the ladder which connects heaven to earth enabling us to remain in touch with the divine and for the divine to stoop down to us. We can trust in Your never failing promises and love. Verse 15 "See, I am with you and I will keep you safe wherever you go. I will bring you back to this land and not leave you until I have done what I promised.”
Beloved, keep me aware of Your Presence with me and in me always then I will never be afraid or lonely. May I never lose my awe of You for You are God and the Son of God although You love me you poor little sinful nothing so passionately and so well. May I rise up early each day to worship You giving You all the glory, honor and adoration that is due to You for You Beloved are Bethel the House of God and the Gate of Heaven.
I believe that You will remain with me all through my life until You come to take me home to Yourself. You are the Cornerstone on which You have built Your Church which is the unshakable pillar and ground of Truth . Grant O Lord that I share Your bounty with all who come into my life.
