In God I Trust

DEVOTION: Genesis 32:24-32

Have you wrestled with God? Sa pagkakataong ito, Jacob was very afraid and distressed pero ano nga ba ang matutunan natin sa pakikipag tungali ni Jacob sa Diyos na nagsimula ng gabi hanggang umaga? Sa maraming panahon, nagtitiwala si Jacob sa kanyang karunungan dahil lagi syang nagwawagi. He always trusts his ingenuity for his plans with his brother Esau. Hanggang ngayon ba ay nagtitiwala pa rin sya sa kanyang sarili na makukuha nyang muli ang lupang pangako (the Promised Land) because he is strong and clever?

The wrestling match with God transformed Jacob. His Challenger broke Jacob’s hip and took away his strength. Naunawaan na lang ni Jacob na tanging pagtitiwala lamang sa Panginoon ang paraan upang makuha niya ang Promised Land at hindi sa madayang paraan at kapangyarihan.

Maaaring ikaw din ay nakikipag tungali sa malalaking problema at alalahanin. Maaaring nagtitiwala ka sa iyong lakas para magtagumpay. But God wants you to trust Him! With Him eveything is possible. It confirms with what Jesus said:

Without Me, you cannot do anything.
