On his way to his homeland at last! After about 20 years of great events. Look back to 28:15 to see the wonderful promise God had given him. Look at Heb. 13:55Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5) for the promise He has made to you (if you are a believer).
Verse 3 All along the way, His promises never fail. You may remember a point in the life of Isaac (Jacob's father) that only when he got back in the land of promise do we read of an altar and prayer 26:23-24. In all the 20 years of Jacob's absence from the promised land, we never once read of Jacob building an altar to God, or even praying to Him! There was nothing to make him stand out from all the people around him. Are we like this? Although Jacob seems to have forsaken God. God has not forsaken him. Have you been on a road of self-will? Away from God? Listen, He is speaking to you "return...I will be with thee" verse 3. He restores our soul. Psa. 23:33He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. (Psalm 23:3).
