Are we really so brave in the face of angel? Or have angels become like "White noise" to us something we hear about so often, we don't really realize that angels are servants for God, and the fallen angels are the ones who fell from God's Grace, in this day and age we seem to place Angels at a higher level than God, when in fact they are below God, Angels are beings of God, they take many shapes and forms. Sometimes they even take on Human form, but they are not God, they have only the power that God gives them.

In my Bible Readings this morning I was reading about Jacob wrestling with God, and I thought of how I would react if I came face to face with an Angel of God, and wrestled him. Can you imagine what Jacob must have felt?

In Genesis 32:22-31 we learn exactly the impact that had on Jacob?

Jacob Wrestles With God
22 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maidservants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 23 After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak."
But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."
27 The man asked him, "What is your name?"
"Jacob," he answered.

28 Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, [a] because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome."

29 Jacob said, "Please tell me your name."
But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there.

30 So Jacob called the place Peniel, [b] saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared."

31 The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, [c] and he was limping because of his hip.

Jacob was brave enough to wrestle with God, and in so doing he changed the course of the history of his people, but what about the things we wrestle with today? Are we really so brave in the face of angel? Or have angels become like "White noise" to us something we hear about so often, we don't really realize that angels are servants for God, and the fallen angels are the ones who fell from God's Grace, in this day and age we seem to place Angels at a higher level than God, when in fact they are below God, Angels are beings of God, they take many shapes and forms. Sometimes they even take on Human form, but they are not God, they have only the power that God gives them.
