Write Your Own History

Read Genesis 32:21-32

Reading Jacobs story makes me reflect on my story and other people’s stories that I’ve heard along the way. How many of us have wrestled with God? At some point we have all wrestled with God. If we haven’t or didn’t realize it we are probably wrestling with God right now.

God is requiring more from us but we continue to wrestle with the plan that he has for our lives. We want microwave results. We want it to be our will and our way. God says go through the struggle and then when you surrender to my will and way, I will bless you. Amen!

In that moment Jacob became a new person and old the old Jacob passed away. (1 Corinthians 5:17) He was now to be called Israel. Jacob faced God and stopped running from correction.
He wrestled with God and the oppression that the enemy had on him was lifted in that moment.

To mature in Jesus Christ, means that we will face trials and tribulations but the struggle is there to help us grown stronger in the Lord.

This scripture was placed in my spirit as I wrote this blog: Psalm 30:5 weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (KJV)
Jacobs’s story is now history and he made it through. What will history say about you? Will you surrender today and yes to God’s will and way?

~Be Blessed!
