Pastor Wilder shares a message from Genesis 32:24-29 entitled “You’ll Winn if You’ll Wrestle”. The main points are as follows:
Jacob devised a scheme:
Jacob sends presents to Esau
Jacob had a presentation
Why Wrestle With God
Jacob wrestled with God because of the predicament he was in
Getting in a predicament is the only way we call out to God
We only wrestle with God when we are desperate
Jacob had a sense of powerlessness
Jacob engaged in wrestling because of the promises on his life (Genesis 28)
Multiply his seed, bring him back home safely
You have a promise on your life!
Jacob wrestled because of the potential of what a victory would bring (Jacob had 12 sons)
God is interested in all of us!
