The Lonely Place

God doesn’t need a lonely place to speak. Jacob needed the lonely place to hear. God doesn’t speak only in wilderness places, but often we only hear him speaking in the silence of the lonely place, when, like Jacob, our struggle for mastery over our own lives fades into silence

“Know that I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

Genesis 28:15

God doesn’t need a lonely place to speak. Jacob needed the lonely place to hear. God doesn’t speak only in wilderness places, but often we only hear him speaking in the silence of the lonely place, when, like Jacob, our struggle for mastery over our own lives fades into silence
