I asked our girls, "Is it right for you to wrestle with God?" Most of them stared back at me and shook their heads, "No..." What a surprise to learn that the answer is YES!! We need to be gentle, kind, gracious, loving and sensitive to other's needs, and at the same time, be bold and assertive in our prayers with God. He loves bold faith!
Can we accept sadness and depression? No!
Can we be afraid of bad news? No!
From Baby Sisters to big men of faith, God wants all of us to be strong in believing that we are safe in His hands, and that all evil is under our feet. God was so happy and pleased when Jacob wrestled with Him. Let's always be girls and women of faith who please God just like Jacob.
