Brokenness Produces Character

Post by Evangelista_GP on Wed Jul 20, 2016 2:07 pm


‘The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.’
Psalm 51:17

When we submit to God’s dealings in our lives, He empowers us to reach our full potential by gently breaking areas of our stubborn will that need to be submitted to Him. As these areas are broken, His power within us is released and things begin to change for the better. Power and talent without character and direction, have destroyed many a man and woman. You probably know some of them. So be warned; unless your talent is governed by character, you’re heading for trouble. A horse may come from a line of blue-ribbon champions, but until its will has been broken its power endangers itself and those around it. You’ll notice two important things about a thoroughbred champion horse: 1) It hears many voices during the race but it has learned to respond to only one - the voice of its rider. And that’s God’s plan for you. You’ll get a lot of opinions, but to win in life you must be led only by God. And that calls for humility. ‘He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way’ (Psalm 25:9 NIV 2011 Edition). 2) Its power is realised and its full potential released only when it can be harnessed and directed. So, is God breaking you in similar fashion? Is He putting His harness on you and saying, ‘You can’t live like that anymore, or do your own thing, because I have plans for you’? The word for you today is: ‘You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God’ (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NLT).

Esther 1-2, Rom 10 (Bible in one year)

When I almost failed one of my major courses, I felt like, it's all over. But people encouraged me, and I got enough courage to rise from Average to top. Brokenness I went through helped bring out the best in me

We are all wounded. But wounds are necessary for hishealing light to enter into our beings. Without wounds and failure and frustrations and defeats, there will be no opening for his brilliance to tickle in and invade our lives. Failures in life are courses with very high tuition fees, so I don't cut classes and miss my lessons: on humility, on patience, on hope, on asking others for help, on listening to God, on trying again and again and again.
