Be Still and Know That I Am God.

Hi friends, do you feel like your marriage or some area of your life is at a standstill? Do you feel at a loss? Consider that God may have you in a ‘headlock’ of sorts– a holding position until you come into the understanding that He wants you to receive and demonstrate. God wants us to glorify Him and it’s not a coincidence that what exalts Him in our lives is what is best for us. It’s not enough to want our best but we can look forward to God’s best for our marriages. Our lives ūüôā Perhaps when the spiritual lesson is learned, He will release you but not where you expected. Perhaps He will release you to walk into His blessing. Perhaps you are not wrestling with yourself or your spouse or coworker. Perhaps it’s God Who’s got you and not letting go until His appointed time. When He releases you to walk in His anointing and blessing, you can look back and remember so you can honor God and what He wanted you to learn. ‚ô• God bless you!
And Jacob was left alone, and a Man wrestled with him until daybreak.
25 And when [the [a
]Man] saw that He did not prevail against [Jacob], He touched the hollow of his thigh; and Jacob’s thigh was put out of joint as he wrestled with Him.
26 Then He said, Let Me go, for day is breaking. But [Jacob] said, I will not let You go unless You declare a blessing upon me.
27 [The Man] asked him, What is your name? And [in shock of realization, whispering] he said, Jacob [supplanter, schemer, trickster, swindler]!
28¬†And He said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob [supplanter], but Israel [contender with God]; for you have contended¬†“and”¬†have power with God and with men and have prevailed.
29 Then Jacob asked Him, Tell me, I pray You, what [in contrast] is Your name? But He said, Why is it that you ask My name? And [b
][the Angel of God declared] a blessing on [Jacob] there.
30¬†And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel [the face of God], saying, For I have seen God face to face, and my life is spared¬†“and”¬†not snatched away.
31 And as he passed Penuel [Peniel], the sun rose upon him, and he was limping because of his thigh.
32 That is why to this day the Israelites do not eat the sinew of the hip which is on the hollow of the thigh, because [the Angel of the Lord] touched the hollow of Jacob’s thigh on the sinew of the hip.
