Genesis 35:3

Then come, let us go up to Bethel, where I will build an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone. NIV

God answered Jacob when Jacob called out to Him in distress as he was being pursued by his brother, Esau.

Jacob recognizes that God, and no other, rescued him from that situation.  Further, he sees that God has been with him wherever he has gone.

Great examples.  Beautiful truths.

When I call out to God, He will answer.  There is no place that I can go that God is not with me.  I have nothing to fear and nothing to worry about.

No matter what I face, God is with me.  I will rejoice and praise Him for that truth today.
