Jacob: Wrestling With God
In this part of Jacob’s story, we see him in great fear and distress as he hears that his brother Esau (whom he earlier deceived) is on his way to meet him with 400 men. Jacob cries out to God to save him from the hand of his brother. Jacob prepares many gifts to go ahead of him in the hope of pacifying his brother before ‘the great confrontation’.
After Jacob’s gifts had gone ahead of him, he was alone. A man wrestled with him until daybreak, put his hip out of joint, but Jacob would not let the man go until He blessed him. But what can we learn from this incredible story?
Listen as Jill unpacks this story and, in her usual dynamic way, sheds light on its practical application for our lives today.
