The truth is in there.

I don’t enjoy wrestling & fighting matches be it it male or female. Apart from the obvious staged shows the caged & roped violence is concerning even if great stamina & skill is involved. And yet as kids we wrestled a lot & had fun trying to be the strongest and greatest.

Mentally we wrestle with things too & as believers in Christ we wrestle with spiritual issues that may affect us from within or without. Psalm 13:1-6. It is good to cry out to God. He already knows our situation like a parent who may read a child or a child that may read a parent like a book, only infinitely more informed & aware.

At times it seems ironic that we should have to question God or cry out to Him, the God who sees all, surely He should just act. But that is all a bit too automatic and would deny the relationship side of things. God wants us to relate, trust and be patient, something I am not too good at sorting out, but thankfully the Holy Spirit is.

53. Q. What do you believe concerning the Holy Spirit?
A. First, that he is true and co-eternal God with the Father and the Son; second, that he is also given me, to make me by a true faith partaker of Christ and all his benefits, to comfort me, and to abide with me forever: 
Heidelberg Catechism.

2Cor 4:18. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
