Why We Work So Hard for What God Wants to Give

We work so hard at life. Most of us spend year after year trying to get better jobs, better homes, better relationships, even a better spirituality. Yet every day we face the haunting doubt that we haven't done enough. Jacob would have understood. His name means "striver, schemer, supplanter, hustler." And as Craig Barnes reveals, he could have been the poster boy for the American Dream-because like most of us, the ancient patriarch spent most of his life trying to grab what he could only receive as a gift from God. The story of Jacob is our story as well. In our fast-paced, rat-race culture, our efforts and formulas for success will never bring the satisfaction we crave. In Hustling God, Craig Barnes invites hard-running, stressed-out, burned-out people to simply stop. Stop running-long enough to realize we're lost. Stop-and encounter the God who has climbed down the ladder from heaven to earth to find us. Stop-so we can at last receive all the blessing that, in Jesus Christ, God was dying to give us. Only when we empty our hands of our attempts to grasp at life can God fill them with the blessing he's been waiting to lavish upon us all along.
