Pastor Richard Gudgel: "Continue in Prayer"
Our Heavenly Father invites us to wrestle with Him, certainly not because it’s a fair match and also not so that we can be overwhelmed by His strength. The reason God wants us to wrestle with Him – particularly in prayer – is because the wrestling exercises our faith. It tests our spiritual resilience and shows us what we’re able to do and to endure by faith. Wrestling with God is good for us and for our relationship with Him. That’s important for us to remember when the wrestling becomes painful and difficult and we wonder about its purpose. Just know that the whole time you are wrestling with God, you are also in the safest place possible. You are being held in His arms.
