The Stone of Jacob

A boulder under a blue sky

Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it.—Genesis 28:18 (NIV)

In this verse, Jacob set up the stone as a monument to commemorate the blessed place where he was visited by God. Do you have any markers or reminders that help you feel God’s presence? Reflect on your life and recall the many blessings He has given you.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I am in awe at the many times You’ve blessed me.
