The last time Jacob saw Esau, Esau vowed to kill him. Now, Jacob is returning home, and he receives word that Esau was coming out to meet him with 400 men. Would God make good on His promise to bring Jacob safely home? Or would Jacob and his family be slaughtered by Esau?
As he struggled through the scenarios, Jacob wound up wrestling with God.
This can happen to us if we don’t trust the Lord, and if we focus on our problems instead of our blessings.
