Episode 140 – Where Is God When Your Family Rejects You?

Welcome to the Transformed podcast.

When your family rejects you, God is still with you! As the teenage Jacob shows us, God will show up, back up and take up our cause when we trust our lives to His care.

In today’s episode, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California will guide us through 8 family videos from Jacob’s life, each showing us that no matter what happens in our lives, if we will truly walk with God, He will be with us!

This is quite an encouraging message for anyone who has struggled to know if God cares for them. So, let’s open our Bibles to Genesis as we seek to understand that God is With Us!


With that powerful prayer we begin our study, “God is With Us!” Sensing the presence of God is something that every Christ-follower truly seeks after.

If you would like to explore how to enjoy God’s presence, Dr. Smith has written a daily devotional book that will help you do just that!

In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.

You can order a copy of In His Presence from Amazon by clicking the link on the side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.

Today’s episode was recorded in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.

And now, until next time, we are praying that you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
