How can I use the story of Jacob in my life situations? Why did Jacob wrestle with the angel? What is the meaning of Jacobs’s story?
This is a great question; Jacob left home with nothing, and returned with more wealth than his boss Laban. In Jacob's dream the point was that God's blessing is not based on circumstance. God was going to bless Jacob regardless of what situation he was in. As long as Jacob obeyed God, he was going to receive everything God had in store for him. Laban cut Jacobs wages 10 times in 14 year period, and Jacob still prospered. God's promises are true and are for every believer who stands on His promises regardless of circumstance.
