There was a mellow song called “Love T.K.O.” that hit the airwaves sung by the one and only Teddy Pendergrass!
Well our talk today is not what smooth Teddy was singing about….but we’re talking about another love T.K.O. (Technical knock out) that will change our lives!!
Gen. 32 talks about Jacob wrestling the angel until the hollow of his thigh was touched and out of joint. He could then no longer wrestle, but he could cling, and that he did.
Paul went to God…and asked him to remove the thorn from his life – he inquired of him 3x’s…and God answered him and said no…my grace is sufficient for you….and my strength is made perfect in your weakness.
Jacob hung in there…he didn’t give up, nor did he quit! See..his name was changed from Jacob (meaning Trickster…one who schemes)…to Israel (one who prevails).
Although he prevailed…he of course could never outdo God – but it was not in the wrestling that he prevailed…it was in the clinging to God…because we see in vs 26 – he began to cling to the angel.
You ever wanted something so bad…that you refuse to let it go?
Well, then the question is…are you holding on to it…or is it holding on to you? The answer will determine the outcome…the answer will determine your destiny..the answer will determine your healing…the answer will determine your breakthrough…the answer will determine your deliverance….the answer will determine whether your actually living in bondage or leaning toward a breakthrough!!!
God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness….it is in our weakness we will see the Strength of God!!!
Now that’s love!!! Stay tuned for PART 2!!!
What you fail to expect – your faith will fail to deliver!! (SMM)
