I will let Jesus fight for me!

I ate breakfast with a friend at his church’s Men’s Breakfast this morning. The teaching was of how God changed Jacob and God made the story brand new for me. The pastor said, God gave Jacob weakness (dislocated his hip) so that Jacob would stop depending on himself. God renamed him Israel, because Israel means “God fights.” Now as Israel depended on God, God could fight for him.

I have been getting depressed lately because I have been fighting in my own strength and I have been losing. This reminds me of one of the previous posts “Let go and let God.”

As I listened to the Pastor this morning I realized I need to humble myself and submit. Oh Lord, help me surrender to You and let You fight for me!

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
