Genesis 28:15

a prayer... "Father God in heaven, be more the ONLY real thing to these people as they go through this overwhelming time."

Father make us sensitive to Your heart and
Your leading
Your life
make us insensitive to the folly of this fallen world and fallen remnants in your people.

We expectantly wait for you to come as the ruling king, Messiah in our lives, but You are coming first at the Lamb of God!

Genesis 28:15 God you leave room for our choice, "wherever you go" while still totally surrounding us with Your sovereign love.

This is a time of preparing the ground, of breaking up the fallow ground,  Read Jeremiah 4:3 and its context and Hosea 10:12 and its context.

AW Pink on the sovereignty of God....   "Bible Prophecy and the Sovereignty of God go Hand in Hand which is one reason most "churches and Christians" no longer Study or believe Bible Prophecy.
The sovereignty of God is an expression that once was generally understood. It was a phrase commonly used in religious literature. It was a theme frequently expounded in the pulpit. It was a truth which brought comfort to many hearts and gave virility and stability to Christian character.
But today, to make mention of God's sovereignty is, in many quarters, to speak in an unknown tongue. Were we to announce from the average pulpit that the subject of our discourse would be the sovereignty of God, it would sound very much as though we had borrowed a phrase from one of the dead languages. Alas! that it should be so. Alas! that the doctrine which is the key to history, the interpreter of providence, the warp and woof of scripture, and the foundation of Christian theology should be so sadly neglected and so little understood.
The "Sovereignty of God." What do we mean by this expression? We mean the SUPREMACY of God, the KINGSHIP of God, the GODHOOD of God. To say that God is sovereign is to declare that GOD IS GOD!
To say that God is sovereign is to declare that He is the Most High, "doing according to His will in the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth, so that none can stay His hand or say unto Him what doest Thou? (Dan. 4:35), To say that God is sovereign is to declare that He is the Almighty, the possessor of all power in heaven and earth so that none can defeat His counsels, thwart His purpose, nor resist His will (Psa. 115:3).
To say that God is sovereign is to declare that He is "the governor among the nations" (Psa. 22:28), setting, up kingdoms, overthrowing empires, and determining the course of dynasties as pleases Him best. To say that God is sovereign is to declare that He is the "only potentate, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords" (I Tim. 6:15). Such is the God of the Bible."
If you made it this far, you are a rare individual in this "give it to me in two sentences world", your reward is to join me in prayer for this family who is going through an overwhelming time and has already endured the death of a 3 year old son to brain cancer.  Let's pray for them...
