    How has any of our hearts been broken for Christ?

    Were you reborn, renewed, restored from your brokenness?

    What does He promise us?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    My brokenness showed me my sins and brought to me the gift of humility

    His love softened my hardness and brought me to Grace

    A worthwhile endeavor this question you raise. Broken-heartedness can be a debilitating affair. And a spiritually infirm state is not what the Lord leads us to.

    From ancient times no one has heard, no ear
    has perceived, no eye has seen any God but You,
    who acts on behalf of those who wait for Him.


    I dwell in a high and holy place, and with the
    oppressed and humble of spirit, to restore the
    spirit of the lowly and revive the heart of the contrite.


    (Isaiah 64:4, Isaiah 57:15)​

    This has become a memorial for my own progress from which I found myself deep within the pit and fastened with fetters I could not break for several months. Ohh, what a profound help it was to experience the cords of love from God’s people that covered me. May I say here, that was performed in a non-Pentecostal environment, thereby I quickly exhausted their spiritual storehouse. When God opened the door through my family to a vigilant body, that is when my wounds found their wonder working Physician, Hallelujah!

    Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

    (Ephesians 6:10)​

    I heard about a preacher of yesteryears who was once preparing to preach from the passage of Genesis 32 (which tells the story of Jacob wrestling with God). And so, the preacher asked a physician friend of his if there was any known medical point of view he may know of to why God touched Jacob’s hip socket during the fight which left Jacob with a dislocated hip from his joint. The physician responded saying the hip socket has the strongest tissue in the human body that even a horse could not tear apart… I think what God wants to know from this story is that the Angel of the Lord must break us down at the strongest point of our self-will before he can bless us. God uses our brokenness, not only to bless us but to bless others, even for generations to come. For it was only when the Lord Jesus Christ allowed His body to be broken with thorns and nails and spear that redemption poured forth like crystal stream from which sinners could drink and live eternally.

    Out of brokenness comes blessing that is sweet.

    Do not fear! Even in your brokenness, God will give you strength and hold you up when you can't hold yourself up.
