Genesis 32 - Key


Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed...

Sometimes this perfectly describes us, that we can become greatly afraid and distressed about things. What did Jacob do about that?

I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies...

Jacob was meek. He didn't go to God demanding, "You have to help me because I'm your servant, and I've been faithful."

And thou saidst...

Jacob meekly recounted the Lord's promises. It's OK to bring up the promises the Lord has given us, when we pray to Him.


Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, [and] the mother with the children.

Jacob said, Deliver me, I pray thee.... When I'm greatly afraid and distressed, I'll meekly pray for deliverance, recounting the Lord's promises to Him.
