Key Verse: Genesis 28:15

…Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.


God makes promises! In this way He encouraged Jacob. Jacob had heard the stories of God’s promises to his grandfather, Abraham, and his father, Isaac, over and over again. It has been said, “God has no grandchildren.” In other words, every generation must enter into a personal relationship with God. Jacob needed to hear from God. He was in a place of turmoil, running away from home, driven to desperate measures because of his own bad decisions. Jacob may have been blaming his disfunctional family. No doubt, trying to sleep that night with a stone as his pillow was truly a “dark night of the soul.” But “between a rock and a hard place,” God took the initiative and gave Jacob assurance of His Presence. From this place going forward, Jacob knew he would never be alone again. God would fulfill all of His promises.


God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, I humbly call on You. Please speak to me. I need You! Please give me a promise for my life, for my future as You did for Jacob. In the Name of Your Son, Jesus, I pray. Amen!


Throughout my life I have received promises from God that moved me forward in His plan. For example, Norma-Jean and I had been producing a weekly telecast for 14 years, plus a children’s telecast for 3 years, when I became aware that it was time to move into a daily production. I believe I had heard that “still small Voice” about this, but I was still not prepared to move out of my comfort zone, taking on a challenge that would involve creating the first professionally equipped TV studio in Canada devoted exclusively to Christian productions. It was at a prayer meeting in August of 1976 that God spoke clearly through two Scriptures, Psalm 19:2 and Acts 2:47. The first says, “DAY UNTO DAY utters speech,” and the second says, “The Lord added to the Church DAILY those who were being saved.” The combination of God’s communication with my spirit and the confirmation of Scripture was enough. On June 15, 1977, the daily 100 Huntley Street telecast was first broadcast live from that address in downtown Toronto, and it’s still going strong daily today! (click here for a 100 Huntley Street program from the 50th anniversary of the TV ministry a few years back. My son Ron and his wife Ann showed some video clips from the very first daily program in 1977). To watch current programs, go to

Yours, believing God with you for God to speak to you today,

  1. I don’t quite understand. I seem to be a day late in the blog. Today’s reading is a repeat (for me, anyway). It is showing yesterday’s date. Anyone else experiencing this?

  2. That still quiet voice of the Sheppard leading His sheep. Visions and dreams, communication with our Creator Father. Thank you God.

  3. Apparently others also did not receive the blog on July 10th. I kept trying all day, but ( not being able to sleep) I was able to access it at 2:00 a.m. (B.C. Time). I did receive today’s at the appropriate time.

    Let’s not forget the Taiwan tragedy in our prayers ….the rescued, the rescuers,the bereaved of the deceased diver, and the praying public, etc.


  4. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy Abdu Murray’s comments on the Huntley St. tv program. He and Robbie Simmonds do a great job of getting their point across. May God bless them both.
    God certainly paid attention to all our prayers for the safety of the cave-trapped boys and their coach. Thank you Jesus. So sad the one rescuer didn’t live long enough to experience the jubilation following the final rescue. Will now be praying that Thailand will come to the cross. God certainly has one tough row to hoe.
    Blessings on all God’s saints.

    • Another fabulous quote from Dr. Jim Denison:

      In these days of divisiveness and anxiety, our peace in Christ may be our most powerful witness.
      In early 1736, a ship from England was bound for the colony of Georgia when a ferocious storm shredded the mainsail and flooded the decks. Many of the passengers screamed in terror. But a group of Moravian missionaries from Germany calmly sang through the storm.
      Their courage and peace in the face of death powerfully impacted one passenger and led to his conversion to Christ. His name was John Wesley.

  5. Yes, Lord I agree with David’s prayer “Lord speak to us all”…Lord, help us to listen, hear and obey, in Jesus Name I pray, Amen!!

    Jacob deceived his Father Isaac; amazing, how annoyed he was when Laban deceived him! The spirit of deception is still present in the world today.

    Lord I pray for discernment, when You speak to us! Thank You Jesus!! Amen!

  6. Yes, Praise You Lord Jesus for Your intervention in the safety of those boys and their coach and the rescuers. We give you all the Glory, and praise and pray that many will come to know that You are the Lord who rescues us from the evil one!!

  7. AMEN AMEN AMEN TY Lord for bringing out the young boys from the cave. I pray Lord that the Holy Spirit has entered the hearts of the boys and perhaps the Lord will minister to the families and friends, TY for this program TY for all the blessings of this day, help us to pray and minister for others TY Lord Bless the concert tonight,TY for everything In Jesus Name We Pray amen
