From the first encounter with God at Bethel to the second encounter, Jacob got off the path and those around him had gotten off the path. Sometimes along our journey, we can lose our focus on God because of His rivals, idols that take our attention away from Him like cars, houses, and other material things.
Jacob and his family had gotten off the path but after the second encounter with God at Bethel, he made a stand and decided to bury the idols that his family had accumulated. This allowed him to make a stand for the ONE and only God that had helped him through the crisis.
At this point along the journey, he surrendered it all and built an altar to the ONE who gives all much like what this video is about: The Stand – Hillsong.
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. – Colossians 3:2
