Brokenness Brings Breakthrough

  • Before Abraham became the father of many nations, he and Sarah were childless.
  • Before Jacob could be blessed, he was wounded by angel in a wrestling match.
  • Before Joseph ruled Egypt, he was thrown into a pit, sold into slavery, and falsely imprisoned.
  • Before Job’s estate was doubled, he lost everything he had, including his family, his fortune, and his future.
  • Before Moses became the great deliverer, he lost his position, his possessions, and his popularity.
  • Before Joshua conquered the Promised Land, he went through the wilderness.
  • Before Samson crushed the Philistines, he was blinded, binded, and grinded.
  • Before David became king, he was renounced by his family, ridiculed by his foes, and rejected by his friends.
  • Before Daniel could be used mightily, he had to spend the night in the lion’s den.
  • Before Hosea became a powerful spokesman for God, his wife betrayed him, which broke him.
  • Before Peter preached 3,000 souls into the kingdom, he denied his Savior three times and went out and wept bitterly.
  • Before Paul brought the gospel to the Gentiles, he was blinded on the Damascus road.
  • But sometimes God has to break us so that He can remake us.

    I totally agree that brokenness if humbly accepted will always bring us closer to God,it opens our understanding of who God is,He totally reveals Himself as The almighty God,The Great EL Shaddai…the brokenness is sometimes very trying,very testing but ultimately His purpose will eventually be revealed in situations He allows in our lives to build character and resilience and most all when we become truly broken we learn to totally depend on Him and not on our own resourcefulness just like Gideon eventually learned …I have no doubt that He is currently raising an army of men in these end times to show those qualities of obedience,strength of character and most of all total trust and dependence on Him in all situations in life that at all times He will receive ALL THE GLORY and not ourselves.
