“Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. And behold, the Lord stood above it and said: “I am the Lord God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Genesis 28:12-14 NKJV
Ladders take us to a higher elevation, they enable us to reach things we could not reach on our own. Ladders symbolize moving upward whether in the corporate world or even in construction, when you see ladders you know they are working on things that are higher. God used a ladder to show Jacob that He was calling him out from amongst his people and that God was not only going to increase Jacob but He would be with him every step of the way. What a visual guide for Jacob, a young man who has messed a lot of things up. One who was named deceiver, trickster, but God saw more than what others saw in Jacob. Maybe you have started off on the wrong foot, maybe things haven’t gone exactly like you had planned. But God does see, He knows what is inside of you and only He can bring that increase into your life. God wants to give you a different perspective, He wants you to get a vision of what He has for you, and sometimes that requires seeing things from a heavenly perspective. Stop viewing your current circumstances from an earthly position. Let God show you His Ladder of success, one that is filled with His messengers.
