Jacob is alone (posture). He is afraid. He has to face up with who he was. He has asked God for help.
God meets Him, but not in the form of help. God meets him with aggression.
‼️God is aggressively marking the seekers. There is no option, no backup plan. God is not playing with us anymore!

The face of God is also the Presence of God!
