Wrestling : Wrestling is A Physical Competition, Between Two Competitors  Then Jacob was left alone and a man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. And He said, let Me go, for the day breaks. But he said, I will not let You go unless You bless me. So He said to him, what is your name? He said, Jacob. And He said, your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel for you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed. Then Jacob asked, saying, tell me your name, I pray. And He said, why is it that you ask about My name? And He blessed him there. So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel. For I have seen God face to face and my life is preserved – Genesis 32 : 24 – 30.

God : Silhouette of people worshiping to the God Stock PhotoAnytime God visit or He touches someone, something(s) must surely change in the life of the person physically and  spiritually. It might include a change of name, a change of friends, it might include going out in the midst of your love ones, it might be abandoning things because the person is no more in control of himself but rather the Holy Spirit is now in control of the person. There is bound to be a complete change in the person. He no longer sees things the same way he use to see things, his thinking will change, the way he speaks will change, he continues to love without limit, he continues to see things in a different way because the person has been tested and he passed the test.

Even when he did not have more strength left, even when he could not know the purpose of the fight, even when he did not know the prize, even when he did not know when the fight is going to end but he persisted and persevered till the end and he received the victory because God has placed the victorious power in him and that same power is in you.

  1. I find myself extremely grateful for the examples of humanity’s failures throughout scripture because I can identify with so many of them. Struggling with God’s will for my life, running away from a task he has set before me, It is very comforting to know that God uses our weaknesses, stubbornness, and questions without giving up on us regardless of the times we fail. I cling to these accounts to give me hope and strength that our God is loving, tolerant, and merciful. Thanks for the timely reminder. Merry Christmas and the very Happiest of new years!

      Thank you Tina for the great insight. You are very right, God uses our weaknesses and stubbornness to keep on pushing us to the right direction no matter how we try to run from His purpose for our lives. He is really merciful. Have a blessed season of celebration 😆
