I’d rather be wrestling with the Lord

It may not be easy… but guaranteed you’ll come out the other end different.

Gen 33: 23-30

23He took them and sent them across the stream, and everything else that he had. 24And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. 25When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. 26Then he said, “Let me go, for the day has broken.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” 27And he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” 28Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.” 29Then Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him. 30So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life has been delivered.”

Oh to be as ballsy as Jacob…. are you allowed to say ballsy when referring to scripture??

Are you wrestling with anything?? What is it?? Lets pray together.

Tim Cox gives a great visual reference to this scripture passage. You should ask him next time you see him!
