Wrestling-Tuesday Truth

And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day.  Genesis 32:24 ESV

When God wrestles He always wins! Jacob actually tried to wrestle with God. As if winning against the Lord in any battle is ever possible. What God had in store for him was so great. If only Jacob had known what the Lord wanted to do in his life, then he probably wouldn’t have resisted God. Jacob wouldn’t have wasted time in a futile wrestling match.

Don’t waste time warring with God. He always wins. Many people think that Jacob was wrestling with God in order to get the blessing, but that is just preposterous. God never operates that way. We don’t get blessed by resisting God. We get blessed by obeying Him. Don’t wrestle with the Lord. Just give in and win.
