Sermon: Jacob – Broken to be blessed

Image by: garryknight

Text: Genesis 32:1-31


‘Lord bless me!’ The prayer of every Christian. Do you know that God has already blessed you? Yes, but you live a hopeless life because of your own shortcomings. God promised you many good things just like he did to Jacob, but nothing seems to work.

Well, I have a good news and a bad news. The good news is still there is hope. The bad news is it’s going to be tough. God says that you need to be broken, so that you become matured enough to use his blessings wisely. The outcome is based on the fact how you react? Therefore let me challenge you. Let God to break you. Why? Let me give you 3 reasons?

1. God doesn’t use shortcuts to bless, Genesis 32:1-6

One day Lion the king of beasts appointed a Monkey as his body guard. One day the two of them went hunting. After some time the Lion got exhausted and fell asleep under a tree, while the monkey stood by side for the kings guard. Suddenly a Fly came from no where and landed on the Lion king’s nose. The Monkey thinking the fly will harm his king drew the sword and attacked the Fly!!!

2. God breaks us to make us whole, Genesis 32:7-12

3. When you are broken you seek God, Genesis 32:12-31

4. In conclusion
