Wrestling with God

Scripture: Genesis 32:22–32:32

How many nights have you laid awake trying to figure out how in the world you were going to solve some problem? How many times have you given some problem over to the Lord only to find yourself impatiently taking it back from Him to once more try and solve the problem for yourself?

Far too often when believers are faced with various challenges we are prone to take matters into our own hands.  Unfortunately this may even cause us to flirt with sin in order to get what we want when we want it.  If we are the people of God then why do continually try to bring about the plans of God by our own efforts?

God wants His children to learn to depend upon Him as the sole source of victory in our lives.
