Hi everyone and welcome to meditating in God's work podcast. I am your host Dorothy Rose of Darby Rose dot com. Thank you for joining us today for this abbreviated bible lesson. We are in the Pink book. This is Book three of 4 in the Genesis Meditating in God's word Bible study series. This is less than 28 entitled Wrestling for a blessing. And this is found in genesis 32 and 33. I'm going to give you a summary followed by some commentary and some questions so you can discover God's word for yourself.
Now we are at the point in genesis where Jacob is, you know, headed back on his travels back home and he knows that he's going to have to meet his brother and face his brother after he left for the trickery um that he did Jacob prepared to meet his brother is so he was prepared to make a man's and he had a humble heart during the night, Jacob wrestled with an angel of the Lord. The bible. That's the way the bible described him as an angel of the Lord. The Lord blessed Jacob and changed his name. This is important. God blessed him and changed his name to Israel which is the nation of Israel. Jacob bowed down when he approached esa but instead esso ran to him and embraced him. Jacob introduced his family and offered him gifts. Ece and Jacob then parted ways and s all went to the land of Sir.
That's important because we're going to read about serves descendants in the future lessons and just a couple of lessons here we're gonna read about Sir is directly related to ECE. Okay so let me give you a little bit of commentary. Jacob wanted his brother to know that he was sorry That he was not the same person he used to be. It's been 20 years since they last in each other. Jacob was taken every precaution possible to lessen the brunt of his brother's wrath. While Jacob was making all these precautions, God had already worked everything out. God doesn't tell you to go somewhere or do something that is not in the best interests of you and your family. God's plans are only good for his people. Now I have a few questions that you can leave me chapter and verse for these. What was Jacob's prayer? And the second question is what was the part of Jacob's body that the man touched? So answer those questions for me.
Chapter and verse uh answer them for yourselves. Uh It's great to know what God's word says in his actual word like paper and pen and pencil, get some and write this down or you can just get my bible. Study, I already have it in there for you have lines where you can write notes. Uh Space for notes and everything. So you can get that out of your mind. Anything that is your questioning. Anything that you want to think about talk about, I have spaces in my bible study that you can write things out. That's going to wrap it up for this lesson. Read Genesis 32 and 33. The title of this lesson is wrestling for a blessing Again. This is less than 28 found in the pink book. And I want you to really create time for God's word today because it's never too late.
