Rev Vikki Waller
Pentecost 9 - After wrestling all night with a stranger who must have been God, Jacob received both a blessing and a dislocated hip. The greatest blessings and the deepest scars can come from the same experience, to reshape us and bring out the fruits of grace from within us. The fingerprint of God is there – not as the cause of the event, but in the way the event is utilised. God hungers for the best for us, for us to have the love and life we were meant to have; and his love is tough enough to wound us, if that's the only way to bring us into his blessings.
Genesis 32: 22-31; Romans 9: 1-5; Matthew 14: 13-21
