God’s At Work

God at Work

So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.” But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” The man asked him, “What is your name?” “Jacob,” he answered. Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.” (Genesis 32:24-28 NIV)

Jacob had a hard, unconquered character. His whole life was about conniving and manipulating to get what he wanted. But he also was in a relationship with God. God knew it was time to set Jacob’s character straight so he showed up and freed Jacob from himself. What God saw in Jacob we will never know but because of God’s persistence, Jacob was forever changed.

Father God, be persistent with me. Move me from where I am. Change me into what you see.  Amen
