Gen 32:1 As Jacob started on his way again, angels of God came to meet him.
Jacob was about to meet his brother Esau, whom he had not seen in 20 years. When they last saw each other Esau swore he would kill him.
That was the last words Jacob had heard and the persistent thought in his mind all those years.
But God gave him assurance that He was with him before he met his adversary.
Matt 4:11 Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus.
Jesus was tempted by the devil for 40 days. Temptations aimed at breaking the spirit of Jesus.
But it did not.
He stood strong in the Spirit of the Lord and afterwards angels met Him.
God gave Him assurance that He was with Him after He met His adversary.
In either case the message is clear – God is with you before your problems and He is with you after your problems.
He is the Alpha and Omega – the beginning and the end!
He is everything in between and will be with you in between the beginning and the end!
Abba, Father. Praise You for always being there for me – before, after, and everything in between! YES&AMEN
