Wrestling with the Lord

January 27, 2013 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: Genesis

Topic: AM Service Passage: Genesis 32:22–32:22

Jacob is about to meet his brother Esau, in what he thinks will be the greatest struggle of his life. But the Lord knows better - that the real struggle for Jacob is to give up self-sufficiency and wholly trust in the Lord. And God is about to teach that to Jacob, face-to-face, at Peniel!

Questions for consideration: (1) In what circumstances are you tempted to think you can “go it alone” without God’s help? (2) How does this passage help you to speak to others about the Lord and the gospel? (3) What reminders do you have of the work of the Lord in your life?
