Scripture(s): Genesis 32:24-29
In the book of Hebrews, chapter 11 we read the account known as the “Hall of Fame of Faith.” In the following Hebrews 12 we read, “we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,” In this series we’ll look several of the “BIG DOGS” in the Bible, and how they lived in amazing ways, did incredible things for God. What if, in our life’s race, we could do on lap around the track with one of these BIG DOGS of faith and what would they say to us that could keep us going.
This week we look at the life of Jacob. Jacob was one who continually received the blessings of God in so many areas; yet, his life also was riddled with deception, deceit, broken relationships and pain. With Jacob “coming out of the stands” to take a lap around the track of life with us, we will look at what do you do when life does not turn out the way you planned and what we can learn from a wrestling match with ourselves and with God that can help us go the extra mile in life.
