We continue the conversation on wresting with God. First Shawna shows us that God wrestles with us to show us that we already have as a gift what we so often try to earn: The favor of God. Then Perry revisits the story of Jacob wrestling with God to show us that our wrestling with God brings us to the end of ourselves, to the end of all our efforts to earn his blessing, and into the realization that blessing and favor with God comes only when we own our sin. And then we have some fun with this: You’re in an alley with your back against a wall. A man with a knife is demanding all your money. Who would you want to have your back? And finally Shawna shows us that God wrestles with us because he’s a good, good Father. Wrestling with him enables us to offload the crushing burdens of life so that we can live more deeply into the light of his love.
