Wrestling with God

You can't get much closer than when your wrestling.  I did a little wrestling many years ago when I was young and flexible.  Wrestling is hard, painful and exhausting, but rewarding.  We often look at Jacob's experience in Genesis 32 in the negative sense yet in reality he was a close to God in that moment as one could possible be.  Are you wrestling with God today?  If so, realize God is so intently interested in your life that He wants to get close to you and show you His great power and speak to you face to face.  He is strengthening you, teaching you and if you walk away with a limp, praise God, He touched you! 
So Jacob named the place Peniel (the face of God), saying, “For I have seen God face to face, yet my life has not been snatched away.” GENESIS 32:30
