OT1 – 11 Jacob’s Dream
The story of Jacob is the story of a man who does not really listen to God's promises, but thinks that he can get what he wants through cunning and deceit. It will take many years before Jacob learns to trust God's promises, in the meantime his own sin causes lots of problems in his life. Nevertheless God continues to bless Jacob. God's blessings do not come because of our obedience or faith but because of his promises.
