Are You Too Difficult For God 2?

Psalm 34:18 (KJV) “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit."

God had revealed to his mum that he was the chosen one, although he had an older brother. Because he was very close to his mum, he was aware of the prophecy. Soon enough, he got the blessings of his father. How did that happened? He wasn't the first child, neither was he his father's delight. He got the blessings anyways, his father's wish inconsequential. Obviously, a hand stronger than his dad's wish was involved; God had chosen him. He walked around with angelic entourage, heard God's voice, saw angels and enjoyed the supernatural; seeing miracles that defied scientific explanation. Sadly though, he lived as a fugitive; banished from his father's house many years, cheated many times and was forced to marry a woman he didn't love. All the while, God was with him and the angelic entourage hadn't changed, but he suffered for twenty one years. This was the story of Jacob, the grandchild of Abraham, the friend of God.

What might be wrong? How can a man be so blessed by the Lord and yet suffer so much frustration? Your situation might be similar to Jacob's. You may have had beautiful visions, encounters and prophecies, yet your life has been opposite of the things you've seen that you're now left with the same question, “what might be wrong?".

Jacob was too difficult for God to handle, since he won't let God work out his will in him the easy way, he was taken through the furnace of affliction (see Isaiah 48:10). But the mild afflictions didn't work, at last, God himself had to wrestle with him, even at that, God couldn't win so he had to cripple him (Genesis 32:25-28).

If your story is similar to Jacob's, your freedom from affliction will come when you will willfully submit your ambitions to God.

Go into today knowing that “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit" (Psalm 34:18 KJV).

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I quit struggling with you. I yield myself to your will. Amen!
