A Vital Experience of God

Genesis 32:1  (ID: 1839)

Jacob’s encounter with God at Penuel provides a profound illustration of the monumental change He brings about in people’s lives. Alistair Begg leads us to consider whether we, like Jacob, have had a life-changing encounter with the living God. Jacob found himself at the crossroads of his life, and God showed him the absolute necessity of a heartfelt dependence on Him. He emerged a changed man. Have we had a similar definitive experience?


Jacob Fears Esau

1Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.
