Continued from page 1
After Jacob came face to face with Lord, his walk was forever changed. (vs. 25) He now walked with a pronounced limp. This was something people couldn't help but notice. His walk was harder, not easier after his encounter with God. But, he was forever blessed because of it. (vs. 28-29)
In my struggling and wrestling’s with Lord (where He forces me to look at myself spiritually, and see exactly who I am, what I am), often, what’s revealed to me isn't very pretty and I, too, may leave His presence (like Jacob) limping; my walk forever changed. Yet, somehow, I'm stronger and closer to my King.
