Hold on to God
Today's Meditation: Genesis 32:26.
“... I will not let thee go, except thou bless me”
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: Genesis 32:25-27
25. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.
26. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
27. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
When Jacob was on his way back to see his brother Esau, he sent everyone before him and when he was left alone, a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day and when the man saw that he could not prevail against Jacob, he touched the hollow of his thigh and said to him to let him go for the day breaks. But Jacob said to him that he would not let him go except he blessed him. Jacob struggled to win a blessing. He fought the entire night till dawn to receive the blessing.
Are you searching for a blessing today? Do you want the LORD to bless you in your life? Follow Jacob’s example. Spend the night time with God in prayer and fight with Him till He blesses you with the blessing you long for. Are you praying for someone’s salvation? Do you want a blessing in your future? Do you desire a miracle to happen in your life? Pray throughout the night and cry out unto God saying, “Unless You bless me, LORD, I will never leave You.”
Let your tears drench the feet of Jesus. The God of mercy will command that blessing which you desire of Him. That is the efficacy of the prayer that is made in night watches. Today, do you have a burden in your heart? Spend time, sacrificing your sleep before God. God will honour you from Heaven and He will bless you.
Prayer: LORD, I will hold on to You till You bless me. Amen.
Thought: Holding on toGodwill definitely fetch blessings.
