God’s host means God’s army. He just realizes that for twenty years out in the wilderness and various other places, he has had an angel escort. The angels of God have been encamping round about him to protect him. So here is a man, really out of fellowship with God, and yet God is protecting him and God is guarding him.
Finally, God lets him see these angels. Jacob says, “Look, there are two hosts: the hosts of people that are with me and then the heavenly hosts encamping all about me.” We all have angels watching over us, but even though God was protecting Jacob, God did not pamper him. God let him go through great need, and want and difficulty.
