This year has taught me that life with Jesus is never boring or challenging!
Dealing with health and dental issues.
Debating whether I should continue writing.
Wondering if I misunderstood the vision Papa gave me.
All have made me question myself.
Thankfully, I never doubted Papa’s love or faithfulness.
The only way I am prevailing is by daily drawing nearer to Papa. Resting in His presence.
The story of Jacob wrestling with God has been my anchor in this season.
So Jacob was left alone, and a Man came and wrestled with him until daybreak. When the Man saw that He had not prevailed against Jacob. He touched his hip joint, and Jacob’s hip was dislocated as he wrestled with Him.
Then He said, “Let Me go, for day is breaking.”
But Jacob said, “I will not let You go unless You declare a blessing on me.”
So He asked him, “What is your name?”
And he said, “Jacob.”
And He said, “Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel. For you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.”
Then Jacob asked Him, “Please tell me Your name.”
But He said, “Why is it that you ask My name?”
And He declared a blessing of the covenant promises on Jacob there.
So Jacob named the place Peniel (the face of God).
This season is drawing to a close. Hallelujah!
A season that has taught me that resting in His presence…
Positively changes you with little effort on your part.
Papa’s instructions and wisdom is clearer.
All because there was Jesus!
