Do you ever wonder about the purpose of pain? Pain, especially chronic pain, often feels like punishment. As Jacob struggled with a "heavenly being" (Genesis 32: 24-32), he was touched on the hip socket, resulting in a limp and chronic pain for the rest of his life. Along with his pain, however, came a new name and a new outlook on life and family. God changed his name from Jacob ("the Supplanter"), who had wrestled for blessing his whole life, to Israel ("one who strives with God") because he struggled with God and with humans and had overcome. His struggle changed him, as any true encounter with God changes all of us forever. He now wanted to act to live up to his new name.We cannot always say pain is good or purposeful. Hopefully, pain breaks AND blesses us. Pain refines us as it draws us closer to God and makes us more dependent upon Him. God is the only One Who can bring good out of every situation.You can find the rest of Pastor Tim's thoughts on Jacob's story of pain and blessing at fpcendicott.org/sermons or on the FPC Endicott page on Facebook or YouTube.#fpcendicott #livinghopechurch #youbelonghere #JacobDBAIsrael #blessingsinthepain ...
