He rejected an offer to make out of him a great nation rather than Israel. Yes, the intercessor must always be unselfish. Moses argued and revealed God the reasons why he shouldn’t destroy Israel at that point in time. Let us read it:”And the Lord said to Moses,’How long will these folks reject me? Will they believe me, even after all the miraculous signs I have done ? I shall disown them and ruin them with a plague. Then I will make you into a nation far greater and mightier than they are! ‘But what will the Egyptians believe if they hear about it? Moses pleaded with the Lord. They know very well the energy you exhibited in preventing these people from Egypt. They’ll inform this to the inhabitants of the land, who are well aware that you are with this people. They know, Lord which you have looked in complete view of your people from the pillar of cloud that hovers over them. They are aware that you go before them in the pillar of cloud from the day and the pillar of fire by night. If you slaughter these people, the nations that have heard of your fame will say,’The Lord was unable to bring them into the land he swore to give them, so that he killed them in the wilderness.’ “Please, Lord, prove that your power is as good as you have promised it to be. Even so he doesn’t leave sin unpunished, however, he punishes the children for the sins of the parents into the third and fourth generations. Please pardon the sins of this people on account of your magnificent, unfailing love, just as you have forgiven them since they left Egypt.’ “Then the Lord said,’I will pardon them as you’ve asked.” Numbers 14:11-20My God! Excellent and productive intercession! Good Moses! Look at the sweet result. This is a standard’wrestling with God’. Some guys are indeed terrific. Read the aforementioned passage over again. Moses did a wonderful job here. He went on, putting forwards every reason under the sun why God should change his mind on ruining the people of Israel via a jolt for their faithlessness and disobedience. He attained his goal by creating God to undo that decision. Good success! Fantastic Moses! Listen, God said,”Come now, let us argue this out” Isaiah 1:18. Yes, he’s searching for people who’ll hold him reasons why he should do what we want him to perform. And this is what wrestling with him signifies. How a lot of us are prepared for this?JacobAnother man that taught us we could actually hold on to God and fight with him in prayer until we receive what we desire out of him is Jacob. Jacob is the ideal case of a guy wrestling with God. They had the game at midnight prayer. There is not any situation that wrestling with God from the midnight can’t change. True! I have repeatedly stated this in my novel / audiobook Ability of Midnight Prayer any man or woman that masters this action of midnight prayer will continue being unconquerable during their life. This does not in any way imply that challenges of life won’t come, sure they will, but you’ll always be together with the situation. I state this through personal experiences and testimonies from other people. When Jacob was coming back from exile and was to meet with an upset and well-intentioned brother – Esau, he was afraid, confused and was trying every trick to escape the rage of a brother who was coming to pay him back for his (Jacob’s) treachery. In that situation, Jacob wrestled with God and changed the entire situation into his favour. Praise God! Please let us go through this very interesting account of Jacob’s wrestling with God:”But during the night Jacob got up and sent his two wives, two concubines, and eleven sons across the Jabbok River. After they were on the opposing side, he sent over all his possessions. This abandoned Jacob all alone in the camp and a man came and wrestled with him until sunrise. When the man saw that he could not win the match, he struck Jacob’s hip and hauled it out of joint in the socket. Then the guy said,’let me go, for it’s sunrise.’ However, Jacob panted,’that I will not let you go unless you bless me’ ‘What is your title?’ The man asked, he responded,’Jacob.’ ‘It is now Israel, as you have struggled with both God and man and also have won.’ ‘What is your name? Jacob asked him. ‘Why would you ask?’ The sun rose as he left Peniel. ‘Then, in the space, Jacob saw Esau coming with his four hundred men. Jacob now ordered his family into a column together with both concubines and their kids in the front, Leah and her children next, and Rachel and Joseph last. Then Jacob went ahead as he approached his brother, he bowed low seven times before him. Both of them were in tears.”What a change of fate! There are things I’d like us to note concerning Jacob’s attitude with this particular encounter with God. Jacob was consistent; he made certain the man (God) didn’t win the game and also refused to let him go without blessing him. And he got his blessings at last. The sun rose upon Jacob and his anxieties were instantly tuned into favour. As soon as we follow exactly the exact same principle, we’re sure to get the same outcome. That is exactly what wrestling with God is about – persisting until you get your blessing from him. Locate the aforementioned story in Genesis 32:22-31, 33:1-4. Now also look at the way Hosea puts it,”Before Jacob was born, he struggled with his brotherwhen he became a man, he even fought with God. Yes, he wrestled with the angel and won. He cried and pleaded for a boon . That’s Jacob for you! He began wrestling straight in the uterus. He wrestled with his brother, he fought with God and in addition, he wrestled with the angel and won. And I wish to add that he also wrestled with his father-in-law to get his riches and spouse of selection. He knew that the game perfectly well. It’s called wrestling Match! Yes, that guy was determined right from the womb to get the most out of his opportunities. He was determined to view all the claims of God have come to pass in his life. So, he wrestled! We will continue. Share this information with others.
