Throwdown in Torah - When I Least Expect It

Everyone responds differently to surprises. How do you normally react? Calm, cool, collected? Optimistic and hopeful? Pessimistic and uncertain? The reality of life is that we are constantly faced with the unexpected. This week in our journey with Jacob we find our lead character on the run and stumbling onto a certain place. It isn’t a designated spot and the whole point of this story is that God shows up where we least expect him too. Our impression of who God is can often challenge our expectations of what he will do. In this story, where Jacob has done everything wrong and seemingly ruined the promise of God for his family, God reminds him that his story isn’t over.
