Brokenness is a tool that God uses to put us in a position to make us realize that we can do nothing without Him. The state of brokenness forces us to surrender to God everything that we thought we had total control of. Everyone will go through painful experiences in their life. The Bible tells us that in this life we would have trouble, but some of us will be put in a position where we are stripped of everything most of all our jealousy and our pride, and realize that somewhere, somehow we got all mixed up and confused about what is important in life. We will feel lost and alone and finally do the one thing that will get God’s attention. We will cry out to our heavenly Father because only He can take our mess and turn it all around for our good.
Humility is the key that unlocks the prison of despair and places us in a position to be healed. Although brokenness has a purpose, God does not want us to remain there. Satan’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy but the answer to getting back what Satan has stolen from us is found in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Once we let go and let God we acquire the wisdom we need to push forward and get the victory. Being broken is so valuable and if you were to ask any Believer who is successful today, they all have a story of brokenness behind them, and without going through everything they had to go through, they would not have reached their pennicle of success they enjoy today.
You are the sum total of the good and the bad experiences of your life. Your heart must be strong enough to allow the broken pieces to co-exist with the wonderful memories you hold dear. Do not get stuck on the past because there are some things that need to be left behind, but the lessons learned through brokenness are to be used to help you avoid making the same mistakes you did in the past. God also wants you to pass on to others your wisdom so that they will be warned of the consequences of certain actions and attitudes not becoming a child of God.
Keep your eyes upon Jesus and don’t get angry at the trials and tribulations that come your way. God is faithful and He has a plan for you but the only way out is to go through brokenness. You will come out a much better person that will be fit for the master’s use. God is the potter and you are the clay. He alone knows how long you must stay in the fire to be refined so that you come out as pure gold.
