Annointed Beauty Daily Devotions Ministry

Tag Archives: jacob’s ladder

Last night as I tried to think of a topic for this morning’s devotion, the statement Don’t you let go came to mind. I thought about it for a minute and was brought to the story of Jacob and the Angel. You see Jacob had stolen Esau’s birthright and now was in need of the Lord’s protection and intervention. Esau was on his way and we all know it wasn’t going to be pretty when he got there. Jacob began to pray real hard then something miraculous happened.

Genesis 32: 24-28

24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

28 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.

Boy do I want to be like Jacob. Jacob wasn’t having it. He fought with the Angel and would not let go.  They fought all night till dawn. The angel told Jacob to let go and Jacob said I WON’T LET GO UNTIL YOU BLESS ME! Now that is what I am talking about. When you come before the Lord and make your petitions known, you need to hold on until you get your blessing. Don’t give up because things are rough, keep holding on. Don’t give up because your back is against the wall, keep holding on. Don’t give up because the enemy said you are losing, keep holding on. Hold on until you receive your blessing. Keep praying until you see your breakthrough. As a matter of fact, P.U.S.H – PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS.

If you have to spend all night wrestling with the Lord until the break of dawn, WRESTLE ON IN PRAYER! Hold on to the Maker until He blesses you. All too often, we give up when things get rough. God wants us to be like Jacob and hold on until we see our breakthrough. Don’t let go of the Lord.

I pray that this devotion will inspire you to keep pressing on and wrestling in prayer. Deliverance is on the way so DON’T YOU LET GO!

Memory Text:

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD – Psalm 27:14

Prayer Prompt:

Dear Lord,

Thank you for teaching me to hold on. Strengthen me Lord and help me to wait patiently for my blessing. Like Jacob, I won’t let go of you until you BLESS me and even when you do bless me, I still won’t let go of your hand. I place my life in your hand and I know that my deliverance is on the way….
