Wrestling With God

I have wrestled with God all my life. I have yelled at God because I was mad at my circumstances, yet God heard me out and comforted me. I turned my back on the Master, left Him and went my separate way, yet when the world rejected me the Master received me back with opened arms and embraced me. I offended God with my behavior then again God removed my offenses from Him as far as the East is from the West. I have cried out to the Light of world to give me light when in my distress of wrong choices, and as a result He guided me patiently and was long suffering against me, and rescued me at his perfect timing. There’s no possible way to lose against God, he accepts your challenge because that is what the Master desires. The Master desires to talk to you, to hear you out, for this reason He will always be with you.

However there’s one thing that refuses this wrestling match because it will expose the darkness with the Light of truth. The carnal mind continually craves to do the things that the body longs for, for example: to be acknowledged by people, other peoples properties, items that don’t belong to it, other peoples spouses, flashy and shiny objects, power to rule over man, etc. The list never ends because the carnal mind can always find itself to distance itself from the Creator. So what does the carnal mind do when it doesn’t have the things it desires? It wages war against the world and his/her neighbors to take the things by force or deceit. All the while the carnal mind comes to its destruction. Wrestling with God is much more difficult than actually taking the time to do it.

I rather wrestle against God in the Spirit, at least He answers some prayers that are according to His master plan for my life in this fallen and broken world. The Master knows what’s best in our life than we will ever know.

So how do you wrestle with the All Mighty? First, you do this by prayer, prayer without ceasing. It’s a dialogue, which means you converse with God in the Spirit and you listen to His voice, which comes as a small whisper. Maybe, in the beginning you won’t be able to hear Him because you have given your ears to many other utterances. Second, which is harder for most people, take up fasting. Fasting breaks spiritual bondages and breaks spiritual chains of fears, addictions, lusts, broken hearts, etc. With fasting you will be able to hear Gods whisper much clearer.

Are you willing to take this challenge or continue to fall until you return to dust?
