Bible Text: • Genesis 32:22-31 • Romans 9:1-5 • Matthew 14:13-21 | We are the wrestlers, wrestling with thought, life, day and night

Jacob wrestled till daybreak

Jacob wrestled with forgiveness, rehabilitation, crossing,  a challenging river, gripping the nature of blessing with 11 children two wives leah and rachel/ wrestling with survival.

You have striven with God

Jacob perseveres, Capitulates,  violence, persistence, draws near to God, slake a thirst, compelling, restoration, community, running toward his brother and weeping, gift of grace, baptism of desire, divine recognition

 The moment of wrestling for  where he is  speaking the truth in Christ

Pauls struggle, he proclaims the steadfast mercy of God,  reconciliation with God

Jesus struggles wrestling with life. He withdrew from there in a boat

 

Jesus makes miracle to gladden, spiritual power, hungry crowd, stranded, lonely are fed, craving for Christ, meal for the masses, turns stones into bread

He blessed and broke the loaves. The possibilities are infinite, look up to heaven, give  something to eat, powerless no more, redemptive drama, teaching and miracle, the Jesus story is the grand story.
