Finding God in the Loneliest of Places

There’s a wonderful story in the Bible about a man named Jacob who had to leave home in a hurry to flee for his life. That first night he ended up at a lonely spot where he settled down miserable and all alone, thinking his whole world had collapsed. But that night he had a dream of a stairway leading to Heaven. He woke up and realised this had been a message for him, and he said “Surely the Lord is in this place and I knew it not.”
Life sometimes takes us all to lonely spots where we lay down at night not caring if we wake up next morning. But God is in those spots too. It’s only later as we look back that we see how even our most dismal times led to new beginnings. The last thing Jesus said was “I am with you always, even to the end.” He still is. The Lord is still in this place even when we don’t recognise it.
