I am with thee, and will keep thee


Genesis 28:15 (King James Version)
"And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of."

This is what God told to James on the way to the home of Laban, when he ran waya from his brother.This is a promise verse which all christian should know.
This verse contains 4 promises.

For the Lord to give us this promises, what we have to do?

Complete Obedience:
Genesis 27:43 (King James Version)
"Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; arise, flee thou to Laban my brother to Haran;"
James obeyed the word and fled to Haran. It shows complete obedience to what servants of Lord told you to do.

Life of separation:
The Lord appeared to him when he was alone at the forest. This shows a life of separation.When we lead a life of separation, the Lord will start to speak to us.
God was with Joseph.
Gen 39:2, 37:2 Genesis 39:2 (King James Version)
"And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian"

Parying and Mediatating before God:Joshua 1:5 (King James Version)
"There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."

Meek and Faithful:Number 12:3,7
"Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth."
"My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house."

Spirit of Ministry, Meditating the law of God
Joshua 1:1
"Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,"

For those people who do the above four things , the promises will belong to them.
2 Chronicles 15:2 (King James Version)
"And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you."

May God bless you with these words
