(I watched Jacob's story last night where he wrestled with God to be blessed.) 


HEARD:  You may have My blessing.


HEARD:  Will you do me a favor?  Humble.  To earnestly contend.  Jacob wrestled.  With diligence.  To seek Me with all your heart, with expectation.  Knowing I respond. 


Heb 11:6 NKJV

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.


Matt 6:8-11 NKJV

"Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.  In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.  Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.


Jude 8-11  NKJV

Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. 9 Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation {2920}, but said, "The Lord rebuke {2008} you!" 10 But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.







krisis (kree'-sis); decision (subjectively or objectively, for or against); by extension, a tribunal; by implication, justice (especially, divine law):

KJV - accusation, condemnation, damnation, judgment.





epitimao (ep-ee-tee-mah'-o); from NT:1909 and NT:5091; to tax upon, i.e. censure or admonish; by implication, forbid:

KJV - (straitly) charge, rebuke.



I AM opening your eyes to understand the difference in contending for the blessing and earnestly praying.  Consider Michael the archangel, and his respect for the authority of the devil.  Michael was arguing and contending for Moses' body, but he dared not bring damnation or judgment against the enemy.  Rather, in the power of the Lord of Hosts, Michael forbade him saying, "The LORD rebuke you!" Michael understood authority and respected the boundaries he was given to fight.  Michael, although he was very powerful, was humble and did not raise up in his own strength to judge and condemn his enemy.  Humility is honoring the boundaries of My Word and Myself.


Likewise, when you wrestle in prayer, whether it be against the enemy, or with Me, remember your boundaries of respect for authority.  Beloved, being angry with Me is not respectful.  I do give you the power to bind and loose, but standing in violent judgment of satan is not respectful. When you seek My blessing, with careful diligence, you are earnestly seeking Me with all your heart knowing that I respond to such a prayer.


Heb 11:6 NKJV

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.


Matthew 18:18 YLT

'Verily I say to you, Whatever things ye may bind upon the earth shall be having been bound in the heavens, and whatever things ye may loose on the earth shall be having been loosed in the heavens.
