Scripture Reading: Gen 32:27-29. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.
Reflections: Jacob was on his way back home, He had lived outside his homeland for 20 years. After crossing the river at Jabbok, he decided to spend sometime alone with the Lord. Within those moments he encountered the presence of an Angel. He physically held on to this Angel all night refusing to let this divine personality depart until he had been blessed. The Angel succumbed but before pronouncing the blessing, changed Jacob’s name to Israel. This is significant. Sometimes, something will have to change around you in order for you to access a peculiar blessing of God. As you yield to any change process required to get you launched into greater blessings, your life like Jacob will never remain the same. You will surely be blessed!
Prayer- Oh God change anything around me in the spirit and in the physical which does not allow me to walk in peculiar and greater blessings.
Confession: I am blessed of God. By grace I meet the demands of any change process required for the activation of such Divine blessings.
