Genesis 28 -- Jacob: The Vision of the Ladder

Jacob must now deal with the wrath of his brother. He flees but not before receiving his father's blessing for the journey.

Unlike Abraham who sent his faithful servant to find his son a wife, Jacob is alone on the journey without any material support beyond his own means. He did not go with a caravan full of gits nor with a large company; he was alone.

It is often the case that God needs us to be alone before he reveals himself. Moses was alone when he saw the burning bush and Our Lady was alone when the Angel visited her and God came to Solomon in the solitude of the prayer.

Alone does not mean lonely.

It means present, attentive and available to the calling of God.

Oddly, alone means with God.

Can you be alone?
