“A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench.” Isaiah 42:3.
The reed is bruised and just crushed.
The smoking flax is so dim, it is about to lose the once vigorous flame.
Hear me now as I speak to you these Words. He does not “break” the “bruised reed”.
He does not reach out to finish it off, but to reinforce it. He does not quench the smoking flax! He will not snuff out that smoldering flame, but he will breathe upon it once again.
He had compassion on a “bruised reed” named Matthew and another named Zacchaeus, who were tax collectors for Rome.
He had compassion on a “bruised reed” with a withered hand on a Sabbath Day. He had compassion on a “bruised reed” who was hanging beside Him on a cross at Calvary.
The LORD had compassion on a “smoking flax” named Peter.
The LORD had compassion on a “smoking flax” named Jonah and used him to bring revival to a large city.
He can do it, because He has been a “bruised reed”.
He can do it, because He has been a “smoking flax”
He was literally “crushed” under foot. He was “bruised” in our place and He was completely broken that we might be saved (Isaiah 53:5-8).
The devil was sure the light of The LORD had been snuffed out forever. Jesus became a “bruised reed” and a “smoking flax” on The Cross, but oh three days later that light did rise again stronger than ever.
Our Tender LORD is superior to everything that would crush Him, stop Him or cause Him to fail.
Our Tender LORD is all-powerful and “He is able also to save you whatever the circumstance to the uttermost.” (Hebrews 7:25)
There are people here and you are like that “bruised reed”. You are weak, nearly broken, and unusable in your present condition.
Come to Our Tender LORD right now for I hear these words for you, Reinforce, Restore, and Repair.
If you are not where you need to be with God, Run into his arms. Do it today!
Others are like that “smoking flax”. Your light has grown dim. Oh, you are still serving The LORD, but its all smoke and no light.
Come to Our Tender LORD today. He will trim the wick, put fresh oil in your lamp and rekindle the flame once more. In the eyes of the world you may be broken, however, in the eyes of Jesus, you are not beyond repair.
