From My Messing It Up to God Blessing Me Up chaos order sign image

Shared by Silicon Valley

REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe

Even when I try to be organized, I'm amazed at my default ability to seemingly mess things up.

I love today's message from the June 18, 2018 devotional Our Daily Bread, showing how God is there, always at the ready to start blessing us, even as we are messing things up.

I hope this message on going from messing to blessing inspires and gives you hope today. 

"Lord, I lift up my many messes to you. Show me the way out. Bring alongside true friends and advisors who will help me get fully within your will for my life. Thank you for the many blessings you've already brought into my life and the new blessings you are bringing in to clear out my mess. Amen."

 

Blessing in the Mess

June 18, 2018

Read: Genesis 28:10–22
Bible in a Year: Nehemiah 10–11; Acts 4:1–22

He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.—Philippians 1:6

I got myself into this mess, so I’d better get myself out, I sometimes find myself thinking. Although I believe in a God of grace, I’m still prone to act as if His help is available only when I deserve it.

God’s first encounter with Jacob is a beautiful illustration of how untrue this is.

Jacob had spent a lifetime trying to alter his destiny. He’d been born second at a time when firstborn sons typically received their father’s blessing—believed to guarantee future prosperity.

So Jacob decided to do whatever it would take to get his father’s blessing anyway. Eventually, he succeeded—through deceit—obtaining the blessing intended for his brother (Genesis 27:19-29).

But the price was a divided family, as Jacob fled from his furious brother (vv. 41-43). As night descended (28:11), Jacob must have felt as far from a life of blessing as ever.

But it was there, leaving behind a trail of deception, that Jacob met God. God showed him he didn’t need desperate schemes to be blessed; he already was. His destiny—a purpose far greater than material prosperity (v. 14)—was held securely by the One who would never leave him (v. 15).

It was a lesson Jacob would spend his whole life learning.

And so will we. No matter how many regrets we carry or how distant God seems, He is still there—gently guiding us out of our mess into His blessing. —Monica Brands

Lord, so often we feel trapped by our mistakes, thinking there’s no future left for us. Remind us that you are the God of Jacob, the God who will never give up on Your purposes for us.
God never gives up on His love and purposes for our lives.
