My God! The impact of owning your relationship with God.

Jacob (renamed Israel) had multiple experiences, including breakthrough experiences, with the God of Abraham and Isaac. Now he was ready to declare El Elohe Israel.

The God, is now my God...

I heard about this God, El, having met with my father, and grandfather before him... But now I have had enough experience with Him to call Him My God. 

Jacob built a permanent structure dedicated to El, aka El Elyon, aka El Shaddai, aka YHWH.

That dedication would have lasting ramifications.

In a few short years, Jacob's son Joseph (at 13) would go to Egypt and prepare a safety net for the whole family. One day, nearly 400+ years later, Joseph's descendants would take back Canaan and reburry his bones in the city of this marker.

Go ahead, have experiences of your own, but if you will reach a place where the God of heaven becomes your God, it will have lasting impacts.


Genesis 33:17–20 (LEB): 17 But Jacob traveled on to Succoth, and he built for himself a house, and he made shelters for his livestock. Therefore he called the name of the place Succoth. 18 And Jacob came safely to the city of Shechem which is in the land of Canaan, ⌊on his way⌋ from Paddan-Aram. And he camped before the city. 19 And he bought a piece of land where he pitched his tent for one hundred pieces of money from the hand of the sons of Hamor, father of Shechem. 20 And there he erected an altar and called it “El Elohe Israel.”
