Limping in the Daylight

Limping in the Daylight


Edith preached from one of her favourite texts, Genesis 32:22-31, the story of Jacob wrestling with Someone at the Jabbaok River. Jacob had always managed to trick or buy his way to get what he wanted. But when a stranger lunged on him in the dark and pulled him into the river, he more than met his match.
This ancient story which predated this time in history is used by israel to tell of its naming and blessing. There is always mystery surrounding this Stranger in the dark. Was it Esau, Jacob’s brother? Was it his own demons? Was it God? We never know for sure for the adversary won’t declare its name. But we can see that as Jacob was humbled but not destroyed, he was blessed.
