“Right Where I Belong”

“But Jacob stayed behind by himself, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. When the man saw that he couldn’t get the best of Jacob as they wrestled, he deliberately threw Jacob’s hip out of joint. The man said, ‘Let me go; it’s daybreak. ’Jacob said, ‘I’m not letting you go ’til you bless me.’ The man said, ‘What’s your name?’ He answered, ‘Jacob.’ The man said, ‘But no longer. Your name is no longer Jacob. From now on it’s Israel (God-Wrestler); you’ve wrestled with God and you’ve come through.’ Jacob asked, ‘And what’s your name?’ The man said, ‘Why do you want to know my name?’ And then, right then and there, he blessed him. Jacob named the place Peniel (God’s Face) because, he said, ‘I saw God face-to-face and lived to tell the story!’ The sun came up as he left Peniel, limping because of his hip.”
- Genesis 32:24-31 (MSG)
