I was reading a devotional this morning and it was talking about Jacob and how God changed everything for Jacob but it came at the cost of a limp. In order for God to get Jacob to rely on Him and become what He needed Jacob to be, Jacob needed to be dependent on God. It got me thinking not just about how I came to Christ but all the times God has come in and uprooted everything in my life so that I will be where He wants me. It is never pleasant but I have James 1:3-4 hanging on the wall in my office to remind me that endurance must do its complete work so that I may lack nothing. Sometimes I wish God would let me lack but in reality, that is when I start asking for the hurricane.
Maybe we should be asking for a hurricane, maybe in the storm there is an answer.
Just a thought,
