Wrestling with God

The LORD hears us in the day of trouble;

the name of the God of Jacob defends us;

Psalms 20:1

God answers us when we crash & fall all apart,

The name “God-of-Jacob” will rescue us from,

through or by our tragedy.

The title, God of Jacob, conjures up an image of

God getting down on His knees as an affectionate Father, to wrestle with us.

But in these playful, close expressions,

He allows nothing in that will hurt us.
