Martyn Lloyd-Jones: Broken By God

Commentating on Genesis 32:30-31, D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said:

“How do you know you have met with God? You limp. You know you have met God when you limp, you’ve been hurt, you’ve been broken by God… 

Jacob after Penuel was never the same again. He was lame, he had a mark upon him, & his name was changed from Jacob to Israel… Jacob, the old Jacob, was no more. Now he is a cripple in a sense but a new man & living a different life… Jacob, the strong self-reliant Jacob, is gone and the crippled Jacob – Israel – relying upon God, halts upon his thigh.”
