It is hard to imagine Jacob having God in a half nelson or getting himself out of a divine head lock but the struggle was real, as Jacob faced up to himself, and received a new name and identity, along with a limp to slow him down and remind him of the encounter and his vulnerability. There are other biblical characters, including Jesus himself, who ‘wrestled’ with God. Dave and Phil will spend some time looking at what it means to wrestle with God as we look at these Biblical characters, to wrestle in prayer living out our faith or as we face our doubts. Corrie Ten Boom wrote ‘The more you get to know God the less you understand him, but the more you believe him.’ Dave communicates the Bible and spiritual truths in an accessible style, using a wide range of media. Phil is Director of Scargill Movement.
