There’s something wonderful to be gleaned about the night Jacob spent wrestling with the angel–he wouldn’t let the angel go until the angel blessed him. It’s widely thought that the angel was the Incarnate Christ, and that time spent wrestling was Jacob’s full surrender to be dependent on God . . . and God alone.

Ever since I read that passage, I haven’t left my time with God each morning until I received a blessing for the day. For me, that means a new realization, a new understanding, a different way of looking at a problem, an “aha” moment. He’s never failed me.  Somehow, I’ve sensed God’s delight in hanging on each morning for that blessing.

Memory verse of the week: “I will not let you go unless you bless me” (Genesis 32:26, NIV).
