I am a fan of wrestling. Before I used to find such combat sports very violent and irritating, but I later discovered that you will find certain qualities these wrestlers exhibit that any of us Christians and everybody that wishes to be successful need. And they are; Staying focused and alert, self-confidence, hopeful, courageous, persistence, resistance and tactical. Like John Cena will say, “Never Give Up!” And the current Universal Champion and my favourite, the Big Dog Roman Reigns informs you to, “Believe That!” And he proves it from the ring afterwards. His is just about the most courageous humans that I know. These women and men truly hardly quit in a fight. Even with deep pains and blood sometimes, they still fight on. They always trust it will not be over until it can be over. But I still find boxing and kick-boxing too rough. I hardly have a look at them by any means. But we aren’t going to discuss wrestling or combat sports here. No. We want to discuss wrestling, experiencing God and yes it simply means: faithfully and tenaciously possessing God’s promises with his fantastic words soon you see them come to pass inside your life or in your position. It is possessing God before you receive an respond to your request. It is also refusing to adopt no on an answer about what you know that is God’s will. There are levels you can’t ever attain in God and soon you learn how to ‘struggle’ with him. This involves drawing God’s full awareness of a particular situation or need, convincing him why he ought to do that, and hanging on him until he performs everything you asked him to try and do. This is sure an incredibly serious issue. That is why nearly every one that wrestled with God within the bible was with a matter of life and death or about destinies. Wrestling with God demands for strength, courage, faith, perserverance, but once successful, the reward is usually sweet, enduring, glorious and monumental.
Let us see few instances of the people who wrestled with God inside bible:
Look at how it happened between God and Abraham, when he was about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham on hearing the impending divine judgment went into an instant action to extricate his nephew with his fantastic family on the destruction. He struggled, interceded and ‘wrestled’ with God to accomplish this. Let us read Genesis 18:22-33, “The two other men continued toward Sodom, nevertheless the Lord remained with Abraham for a time, Abraham approached him and said, ‘can you destroy both innocent and guilty alike? Suppose you will find fifty innocent people there inside the city – do you want to still destroy it, but not spare it with regards to sake? Surely can you do such a thing, destroying the innocent while using guilty. Why, you will be treating the innocent plus the guilty the identical! Surely would you do that! Should not the judge of all of the earth do what’s right?”
“And the Lord replied, ‘if I find fifty innocent people in Sodom, I will spare the whole city for his or her sake.’ Then Abraham spoke again. ‘Since I have begun, permit me to go on and speak further to my Lord, despite the fact that I am but dust and ashes. Suppose you will find only forty-five, can you destroy the location for absence of five? Will you destroy the location for not enough five?’ And the Lord said, ‘I will never destroy it if I find forty-five.’ Then Abraham pressed his request further. ‘Suppose you will find only forty?’ And the Lord replied, ‘I won’t destroy it if you can find forty?’ ‘Please avoid getting angry, my Lord,’ Abraham pleaded. ‘Let me speak – suppose only thirty are normally found?’ And the Lord replied, ‘I will never destroy it if you will discover thirty.’ Then Abraham said ‘Since I have dared to talk to the Lord, allow me to continue – suppose you’ll find only twenty?’ And the Lord said, ‘then I won’t destroy it in the interests of twenty.’ Finally, Abraham said, ‘Lord, please not get angry; I will speak but once more, suppose only ten are located there?’ And the Lord said, ‘Then, in the interest of the ten, I will never destroy it.’ Then the Lord started his way when he’d finished his conversation with Abraham, and Abraham returned to his tent.”
Wow! A master intercessor indeed! This was an extremely complex targeted intercession. It was indeed a ‘wrestling match’. It’s unfortunate that ten righteous persons cannot be found within the whole of Sodom, otherwise, a great intercessor can have successfully saved the complete city. Can we find any righteous people around us today? May God allow us! This should be a model for almost any would-be intercessor. You must show patience, persistent, humble, alert, focused and articulating. Abraham persisted and struggled until he might save his nephew Lot and his awesome family from that destruction. That was a standard wrestling match with God. Abraham did not quit until he achieved his objective. What is it that you’d like from God? What have you been believing him for? It is time to morph it into a spiritual wrestling match. Yes. You have to fight like your whole life is determined by it. And in most cases, it lets you do. True. We are inside a war. If you don’t win that battle you might become a victim or perhaps a casualty – your lifetime, your work, your future, your family members, your destiny, joy, prosperity might be taken away by you forever. You must get into gear now and fight. You must get up and pray it! Call out them you need which do not exist into existence. All things are possible! When you refuse to quit, God will never just many thanks, and can also turn you right into a blessing to humanity. Please, we shall continue. Share this message online websites.
