What in my Life Reminds Me of My Need for God?

I love the story of Jacob.  Jacob wrestles with God and learns 3 things about himself:

1. Who he is: a Schemer (that’s basically what the name “Jacob” means).

2. Who he can be: Israel (the new name God gives him).

3. Who he can’t be: Lord of his own life.

God left him with a limp.  That was his reminder of his need for God.  What in your life reminds you of your need for God?  For me, it’s simple. As hard as I try, I’m not perfect.  When I’m closest to God I can see my sin and imperfections most clearly…and at the same time feel no shame and lots of forgiveness from God, who wants to me to be free!
