Choose the right way......

Genesis 32:1 “So Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.”

Someone said, “God’s way will lead us to the destination chosen for us by God, which is God’s eternal plan for us, but our way will lead us to our ultimate  We have almost reached the end of this year and now it is very important that we take the right course of action in our life. The older I get the more I am convinced that crisis are a regular way of life. The only thing that really changes is how you deal with them. We can let our crisis handle us or we can let God handle our crisis. Did you catch that?

Now, in the scripture given above we read about a man called Jacob, We can learn many multilayered and multidimensional lessons from the life of Jacob and today’s devotion would be a blessing for you. Jacob depended on his own strength for 20 years, he committed many mistakes, walked in pride but now after many, many years, God instructed him to take a ‘different direction’ in his life. God says in Genesis 31:13” I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed the pillar and where you made a vow to Me. Now arise, get out of this land and return to the land of your kindred.” Jacob does not argue with God nor does he murmur and grumble about the big ‘turning back’ that he has to do during the prime time of his life. Jacob arrived at a stage in his life, when he understands that his present sufferings are because of him relying on his strength rather than God guiding his life. Each one of us should be convicted of our sins and rebellious attitude instead of blaming God for our sorrows. Are you listening? Remember GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES!

We give our hearts to God and see him strip away the flesh as we depend on Him more and more - but there is still that core of us that wants to preserve the self. But God has to break us, put barricades in our way, smash our plans and bring us to a stage where a ‘complete surrender’ has to be done. There is no longer a "me" - there is only a "He."
