“And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day” (v24)

A lot of people will confront you, but after a while they will give up. The Bible says that God wrestled with Jacob “until the breaking of the day.” God is not going to let you get by with all the little things He used to overlook; you are running out of time. Now He is saying, “Excuses don’t work anymore; you’re running out of time. I must do a quick work to get you to your reserved seat. The enemy is chasing you; you are on the hit list of hell, but I am determined to get you first. Satan has assigned assassins to ensure your demise, but God is saying, I’m out to get you before you loss your life, before you loss your wife, before you loss your name, before you lose your dignity, your son, your seed and before you lose your future. Now God doesn’t run out of time or get old or lose strength – but we do. When the Lord says that the day was breaking and the party was over, He struck Jacob in his hip joint with a precision possessed only by the Master Physician. Read Gen 32:25-30) “ And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of the thigh and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint as he wrestled with him….” (T. D. Jakes)

PRAYER LINE: O Father, help me to look at all the obstacles that litter my path in a new light. May I not be daunted by circumstances but triumph over them through prayer. In Jesus’ name. Amen.



One of those days, Jesus went out to a mountain side to pray, and spent the night praying to God (Lk 6:12)
