Wrestling

Jacob wrestled with an angel or some people think he wrestled with God in Genesis 32. I’m always riveted by these verses & how he spent the night in this divine wrestling match. When it was all done, there were some interesting outcomes:

*Jacob walked away with a limp from his hip being dislocated; don’t expect to go into a divine wrestling match without being changed
*Jacob (deceiver) was renamed to Israel, one who wrestles with God; sounds to me like an upgrade in identity

*solo gig: Jacob did this wrestling thing by himself at night – the last time we read about Jacob by himself at night is when he had the divine dream before meeting Laban in Genesis 28; solitude with God can yield some really awesome outcomes!

It’s not always bad to wrestle with God 🙂
