"WRESTLING" with God


"Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day… And He said, 'Let Me go, for the day breaks.' But Jacob said, 'I will not let You go unless You bless me!'" (Gen 32:24, 26)

Matthew Henry:

"Note how Jacob wrestled: he wept, and made supplication; prayers and tears were among his weapons. It was not only a corporal, but a spiritual wrestling, by the vigorous actings of faith and holy desire"



We have been posted as "Watchmen on the Walls". Because of the desperate state of affairs both home and abroad, we must never be silent, day or night (see Is 62:6).

In the passage above, Jacob wept, prayed and wrestled with God. We understand that because of his "wrestling", he prevailed with God (Gen 32:28).

Things are now so perverse and desperate, we have no choice but to "wrestle" with God if we want to "Prevail with God". However, Prayer alone is insufficient; we must also ACT! Such action could include voting, working for the election of good and righteous candidates throughout the country, speaking and working against unrighteousness and/or in favor of "good vs. evil", advocating for the poor and downtrodden -- including the Unborn; let us not forget to Thank, Repent, and Praise and Worship the Lord while all our "wrestling" is taking place.

To help incentivize our "wrestling", there is a list of items below which will help us understand the Urgent task facing us. Time is short, and we must CRY OUT to God for Him to come SUDDENLY!

Please do not look away and expect others to do your "wrestling" for you. Let's all become "Jacobs" and "Wrestle" in Prayer, expecting Him to come SUDDENLY (
Eccl 9:12; Judges 16:18; Mal 3:1; Mark 13:35-36; Acts 2:2; Acts 9:3; Acts 16:26; Luke 2:13).
