“Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go.” Genesis 28:15
Will keep you wherever you go. Safety, Security, Comfort, Reassurance.
The Lord gives us a guarantee that He will stay with us. That no matter where we go He is there. This is a source of comfort. You can’t hide from Him and He will not hide from you.
Jonah tried to run and hide from God. But the Lord knew right where Jonah was, and made sure Jonah realized that the Lord knew. There is no hiding from Him.
This is not to scare us, but to reassure us. To be a source of comfort and strength to all. We don’t need to worry about being alone. To worry that no one cares. Because the Lord is there and He cares very much.
He is with us no matter who we are, where we are, or even if we try to run. We are safe in Him.
