Throughout Jacob’s life we see evidence of God’s hand at work, but we may not see where all this is leading to. After he was reconciled with Esau, Jacob bought a plot in Shechem. Schechem was later declared a city of refuge – 1Chronicles 6:67 and Joshua 21:21. It was an important place for the children of Israel – Joshua 24:1, 25. The remains of Joseph, Jacob’s son, were buried on that plot according to Joshua 23:32. Abraham had also bought land there – Acts 7:16. God sees the bigger picture. Let us trust Him and allow Him to do His will in our lives.
