Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

Jacob named the place Peniel, which means “Face of God.” A great phrase of the reformation was Coram Deo, which means before the face of God. All of life is to be lived with a sense that it is lived “before God’s ________________ eye.”
What would the limp represent in Jacob’s life going forward?
His tendency to take matters into his own hands instead of _________________ on God. The limp would slow him down just enough to not get ahead of God!
