DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Genesis 31-33
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So He said to him, “What is your name?” He said, “Jacob.” And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.” Then Jacob asked, saying, “Tell me Your name, I pray.” And He said, “Why is it that you ask about My name?” And He blessed him there. So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: “For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”” (Genesis 32:27-30)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
As believers in God, what a wonderful privilege that we have, to meet with God face to face in prayer! What a wonderful blessing and opportunity that we have, to seek God in prayer! It is such a powerful and marvelous gift that God has given to all of us! Anyone and everyone can seek God in prayer! In the study for the day, Jacob actually wrestled with God and prayed in Genesis 32:24-30, but as also noted in Hebrews 4:16, we believers in God, can in fact, go boldly into God’s throne of grace and make our requests known in prayer to God. Therefore, what a remarkable blessing! And in addition, today’s study of the Bible also points to the importance of having peace, and living in peace with the people around us. Altogether, seeking God and following His commandments to keep them in our lives, will always help to lead us to having a genuine face to face relationship with God, find deep meanings and purpose for our lives, and to finding peace and rest from God for our souls.
SALVATION REMINDER NOTE:
God loves you so much. God does not want you to perish. Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. And, by the grace of God, if you are already saved, share the message of salvation with others, and God will greatly bless you in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
