Moment For The Next Move

Key Verse

“And the LORD said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee” (Genesis 31:3).

Text — Genesis 31:1-7


Jacob left his father’s land and fled to Haran because conditions at home were no longer favourable. He had offended his brother and his life was in danger. At the house of Laban, he had prospered. He had flocks; he had wives, children and servants. Yet, condition changed again. Laban and his sons became hostile. What would Jacob do? “Return unto the land of thy fathers.” That was the message from God. To leave the land where he had built himself a successful career, would have been a difficult decision. And to return to his homeland and confront his aggrieved brother, Esau, would have been a fearful option. But when God says it is time to move, there is no room for argument.

In life, we sometimes come to a place of rut and stagnation. We become victims of a state which A. W. Tozer described as “the dictatorship of the customary” and “the psychology of the usual.” We become slaves of the routine.  At such a time, we need to hear the voice of God urging us to break the cycle and move on.


Break the cycle and move on.


Come out of the rut and stagnation.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to move on in the right direction.
