Genesis 28:10 “And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.”

Genesis 28:11 “And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night because the sun was set and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep”

Jacob had just taken his brother’s blessings and was advised to go to Haran to marry and also escape from the wrath of Esau. He was on a mission to go to a new place which he has only heard of.

He didn’t know what Haran holds for him but he believed it will be a good place. His father prayed for him, blessed him and he left hurriedly.

In our focal scripture, the word “went out” from Beersheba means to escaped or break out. Jacob escaped from danger and went on his way to Haran. In the same vein, you and I have escaped from 2020 with all its antecedents into the year 2021, a year of better things and great promises.

Jacob obeyed his parents and left, but the only thing he had with him were the promises and blessings pronounced upon him and his stave. Every other physical thing was left behind.

Genesis 32:10 “I am not worthy of the least of all the mercy and loving-kindness and all the faithfulness which You have shown to Your servant, for with [only] my staff I passed over this Jordan [long ago], and now I have become two companies.” (AMP)

Jacob affirmed here that it was only a staff he had at hand when he crossed Jordan and headed for Haran but not withstanding he became two companies.

He barely escaped from Beersheba with his life. Esau wanted to take him out. He was worried sick, confused, scared and fidgety when he crossed Jordan.

Beloved, it doesn’t matter how 2020 had been for you, you’ve got to leave it behind. Don’t just quit 2020 physically, quit it mentally and emotionally as well. Leave all your worries, confusion, weakness and threat (Esau) in 2020 behind.

It is time to let go and head for a better place (year).
