Unwelcome circumstances landed Jacob in Bethel, an uncomfortable place. He happened upon this desperate place as he fled from his brother Esau. This in-between place was desolate, an unsettled place of transition. No doubt it marked a new low in Jacob’s life. However, God had other plans for this transition. He met Jacob there and redeemed it. This is the first of three episodes in the Redeeming Transitions series. Ted Witzig Jr., interviewed by Matt Kaufmann, speaks to the issue of transitions. Hope is offered as we see how God intends to redeem our transitions as He redeemed Jacob’s.
