“Wrestling with Angels”
Jacob is on his way back to meet his brother Esau. He is afraid, expecting Esau to still be angry that Jacob tricked him out of his birthright. He sends his servants ahead with gifts, and eventually he sends his whole family to bring greetings. Alone in the night by the river Jabbok, Jacob encounters an angel. They wrestle until the dawn begins to break. Jacob holds on, in spite of an injury. “I will not let you go,” he says, “until you bless me.” What can this wonderful story teach us about the struggles of our lives and the presence of God? Please read Genesis 32:22-31
