“Your name be … Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have prevailed.” – Gen 32:28 NET
In his manly vigor he struggled with God. He struggled with an angel and prevailed; he wept and begged for his favor.—He did not waver in unbelief about the promise of God but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.
“Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, if someone says to this mountain, ’Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. For this reason I tell you, whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”—“’If you are able?’ All things are possible for the one who believes.”—“And blessed is she who believed that what was spoken to her by the Lord would be fulfilled.”
“Increase our faith!”
