The Word for The Day: Have you relinquished control?


wigglesworthHave you relinquished control?

Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Genesis 32:24

Looking back on our spiritual journeys, we have held on to our own way too much of the time. When we come to the end of ourselves, God can begin to take control. The Scripture asks: “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” Amos 3:3. We cannot enter into the profound truths of God until we relinquish control, for “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption” 1 Cor. 15:50

Jacob’s name means “supplanter.” When Jacob came to the end of his plans, God had a better plan.

How slow we are to see that there is a better way.

It took me too long to relinquish, and when I did, WOW WEE! I am in so in love with our Lord and His way, not mine! Amen!

This comes from a Christmas gift I got last night from FGGAM Board Member Wanell Pate. Smith Wigglesworth on Spirit Filled Living! Thank you Wanell, we love you! Merry Christmas! Love the teaching’s of Wigglesworth!
