The Victorious Limp

1024x768-0006Years ago I concluded, I never trust a person who doesn’t have a spiritual limp.  You know the type.  The person who never admits a spiritual setback or struggle.

While Christians are called to pursue holiness, that does not make us immune from setbacks or struggles.  In fact, God is in the struggle!  As I spoke on Sunday (August 13) on Jacob wrestling with God (Genesis 32:22-31), it reminded me that God is in the struggles we encounter.  Often, He is the struggle. God can be hard to understand, and sometimes we do not even agree with Him. Yet, He loves us, and we can love Him, in the midst of the struggle.

So, if you are struggling with your faith, don’t despair.  Do not give up.  Keep wrestling with God.  Like Jacob, you may have a limp after the struggle, but it is a victorious limp.
