Wrestle it Out, by CindyGirl

Genesis 32:24-29
And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.  25And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.  26And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.  27And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 28And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.  29And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.  30And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

Ask Yourself:

    1. Are there things in my past or problems now that I need to face head on?
    2. Have I been hiding from this struggle?
    3. Am I willing to Wrestle it out and NOT give up until God brings me where I need to be through this?
    4. Am I willing to change and yield to the things God is making me to be through this?
