Bible Trivia Saturday: Jacob wrestled with God (Answer)


Spiritual Minefield

QUESTION:

In Genesis 32:25, why did God dislocate Jacob’s hip?


ANSWER:

Genesis 32:32

32 That is why, to this day, the Israelites don’t eat the thigh muscle that is at the hip socket: because He struck Jacob’s hip socket at the thigh muscle.

Not only would Jacob remembered God’s promise by obtaining a limp from the Lord that He was going to make a nation through him (Genesis 28:10-15), future generations would not eat the thigh muscle of the animal as a remembrance of God’s Word to Jacob.

Sometimes God has to impart a permanent reminder as to help you not drift from Him.
