Do you remember the story of Jacob? He was a man whose very name meant “deceiver” and “grabber”. You could say Jacob was a con artist, a liar, and a manipulator. Everything he did was by trickery of some sort. He lived his life relying on himself and things. He found his life filled with struggles, fears, fleeing and pure exhaustion.
Can you relate to Jacob’s story? Is your life filled with anxiety, stress, worry, sickness, and struggles? Are you trying to find the answers by yourself? Are you trying to use your resources which aren’t enough? Are you finding yourself battling the enemy that comes to steal, kill and destroy? Are you losing your grip and feeling defeated?
Change course! Jesus defeated everything that could come against you. He came to give you life and life more abundantly. And you can be victorious. (John 10:10)
Think of Jacob’s situation. He had fled his father-in-law for all the wrongdoing he did towards Jacob only to find himself having to face his brother Esau who had vowed to kill him. He was in a no win situation and his first instinct was to run again. However, God had a different plan. It was time for Jacob to face his fears and stand his ground.
Jacob sent all of his possessions and family across the ford of Jabbok which left him all alone. He ended up wrestling with a man till daybreak. All night long, he wrestled until the man saw he could not overpower him. Jacob was holding on for dear life. He was determined not to let go until the man blessed him. In the end, Jacob received his blessing in the morning and realized he had come face to face with God Himself! (Genesis 32:26-30)
What are you struggling with? What are your fears? What is coming against you?
Keep fighting the good fight of faith. Keep speaking God’s word over you and your family. Keep believing that God will turn your circumstances around. Keep talking with God about your fears and desires. Just don’t let go of God! He is your source and you are extremely close to your breakthrough! Blessings are on their way! Your current circumstances are being turned upside down! He will make a way when you don’t see one. He will give you double for your trouble.
Just like Jacob, God will see you holding on and will realize you are not willing to let go until He releases blessings into your life!
Are you ready for more than enough? Are you ready for God to touch every area of your life? Stand your ground and Don’t let go of Him!
