There are times that we all need to pray for nations, cities, families, etc…but there are also times where we, like Jacob, need to just grab hold of God, and not let go until he blesses us! I don’t know about you but the older I get, and the more I am aware of my assignment, I am more determined to “not let go” until God blesses the vision he gave me, blesses my assignment, blesses my family, time is too short to let go!
There is a season where we make a demand of our purpose and ask God to manifest his promises. You know the story of Jacob- the schemer and usurper who had cheated his brother twice---- first out of his birthright and next out of his blessing. But don’t allow the enemy to convince you because of your mistakes, bad decisions, or missteps that you can’t receive a blessing! None of us deserve it, but the condition of this blessing is your commitment to grab hold of God and not let go of Him!
Many of you need to make this declaration of Jacob (Gen 32:26),
“I WILL NOT LET GO UNTIL YOU BLESS ME”.
Can you imagine the righteous indignation it takes to make this decree in the middle of your darkest hour, your worst battle, your biggest fight, for you to let the devil know that you will not let go of God until your situation changes! And even then it is not a true releasing of God but it is a stance of battle that you are committing to until you see your change come.
Deal with your struggle today. Speak to it and speak to the spirits that try to discourage, distract and deter you. Seek God face to face, but as you are in your spiritual wrestling match with God to conquer those things in your life that need to be dealt with, just don’t let go until you receive the blessing!
