Jacob rolled on the ground throughout the night, hard rock pressing into his back, his opponent pressing into his side. He fought hard. He fought with fear. He fought with determination. Who was this Man with whom he struggled? “Bless me,” Jacob cried out, knowing that this Wrestler was divine.
Do you need to meet God in a physical way today? Do you need to release some anger or fear to him? Do you need fresh sustenance?
He meets you where you are. With Hagar (Genesis 21), God brought tenderness and life-giving water. With Jacob (Genesis 32), God showed his face and gave Jacob new name. With Elijah (1 Kings 19), God brought hope and renewed vision.
What will God give you today? Nothing short of what you need.
