Jacob wrestking with the Angel, 1861
Jacob had a desire for change. He recognised that he needed that blessing from God. His words as he held on to the Lord were this " I will not let you go unless you bless me" (Genesis 32:26) His passion brought about the desired results. His name was changed. No longer was he the usurper; he was now Israel: God strives.
If you haven't found your passion yet; that thing that drives you to get up in the morning and shout "Thank you God' for the job or the ministry or the job that is a ministry, it's not too late. God our Father is always willing to give good gifts to them that ask Him. (Matthew 7:11) Find that passion for change. Find that desire to be effective and that desire coupled with prayer and the power that comes in the form of the Holy Spirit will help you to overcome the opposition and not only that, also to succeed.
Proverbs 21:5Why not take a few minutes to read:
The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, ...
What's your passion? Is it art or music or writing or science? What have you been doing to nurture it?
If you haven't figured it out yet, what are you doing to make it happen; to tap into that inner valve that releases your true potential and purpose?
