Genesis 32

First Read Genesis 32

God spoke to me today from Genesis 32:30 where Jacob said, "I saw God face to face" and this is what I heard Him say:

“I long to have a face to face with you. How long has it been since our last face to face. Too much gets in the way for a face to face. You see I dwell in a high and holy place, and also with those who are of a broken and contrite spirit.* Jacob humbled himself before his brother, He humbled himself before Me too. He knew he was unworthy of all my kindness and unworthy of Esau’s too. It was then that I came to him. The same is true for you. When you humble yourself and realize just how unworthy you are of My grace and mercy, when you humble yourself with a broken and contrite heart and spirit, then, and only then, can we have a meaningful face to face. So today don’t be in such a hurry, Jacob wrestled with Me all night for the blessing. Surely, you can linger a little longer with Me than you do. The results will be amazing. You will never be the same. I will touch you powerfully. It all starts with humbling yourself. I really do long for a face to face with you.”

*Isaiah 57:15
