The story of Jacob is the power of surrender to God. We don’t want to surrender to God, we want God to come alongside us and empower us. This is a pervasive teaching among Christians. Philippians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ we strengthens me – not with Christ. I have to go through Christ, He has to be within me. He is only within me when I surrender to Him and most of this time our surrender only comes in a struggle with Him. But when we concede in the struggle we come out stronger!
