With God, Jacob is ready to face what lies ahead. Does he know exactly what the day will bring? Absolutely not, but there is no more hiding, no more panic, just an assurance in God and the ability to know that whatever happens, he is not alone.
“Then he went on ahead. As he approached his brother, he bowed to the ground seven times before him. Then Esau ran to meet him, threw his arms around him. And they both wept.”

Peace, humility, respect, and love. What a beautiful homecoming.
Fear does not deserve the driver’s seat. If we give it that spot in our lives we turn into an emotional wreck constantly scrambling for control and the gift of peace so graciously given to us is shoved to the side. BUT when we approach any situation with God our entire attitude can be changed.
 
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
 Do net let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
John 14:27

Father God, I pray we can find refuge in Your beautiful gift of peace. When it cannot be found in our circumstances let us know that it is always there in You.
