Vertical Stories – June 2013

God is working in people’s lives at Vertical. Every once in a while we like to share their stories. I hope they are as inspiring to you as they are to me.

I love Jesus. I love my church.

Naming Your “LIMP”

Donnie’s message from this past weekend’s “Summer Blockbusters: Jacob” was such a great reminder of something I hope everyone understands:

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH WALKING WITH “a Limp”.

The reason that Jacob walked away with a limp was the fact that he finally wrestled with God.

[25] When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. (Genesis 32:25 ESV)

[30] So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life has been delivered.” [31] The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his hip. (Genesis 32:30-31 ESV)

Most people would view this on the surface as being a bad thing. “You wrestle with God you’re gonna walk away with a limp!” I do not. Of course I am speaking about a spiritual limp, not an actual physical one.While there is nothing wrong with walking with a limp, there IS SOMETHING WRONG when you don’t know why. Who does that in real life? If you find yourself limping and it doesn’t go away, eventually you go see a doctor, right?!? Jacob KNEW why he was limping. He had lived his life in a way where he was trying to receive God’s blessing in hIS OWN power – now after wrestling with God Jacob was not fighting anymore.

I see people all the time “limping around” because they’ve wrestled with God but they let go:

  • when they turned to God in a true moment of need only to let go because things seemingly got better or even worse…
  • when in a moment of weakness they turned back to the substance that they had been clean of and are ashamed to come back to God…
  • when they can’t get their head above water in life because of a really bad decision they made in a moment of passion…
  • when they repeatedly make the same bad decisions time and time again, KNOWING THEY ARE “LIMPING”, yet don’t understand why.  

Some of you reading this have wrestled with God but forgot and it has left you with a limp and you don’t know why. Here’s an idea: When you “wrestle” with God determine that you won’t let go until God gives you a new “name”:

[26] Then he said, “Let me go, for the day has broken.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” [27] And he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” [28] Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.” (Genesis 32:26-28 ESV)

“I used to be (you fill in the blank), but my new name is “FORGIVEN”, now I walk with Jesus. Yes, I have “a limp” but that limp is a blessing as it reminds me of the day He changed my life.”
