Genesis 32:25 (NIV)  When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man.

We will have struggles in life that we do not understand, and think that we are in the struggles alone. If we are children of God, we are not alone. If God initiates the struggles, there is a purpose. Often time what we desire to do is contrary to his will. If we will just trust God, we will discover a deeper relationship with our creator the, almighty God.

Jacob’s struggles lead him to seek God and trust Him. When we have struggles we should continue to have faith in God and trust His promises.
