The world cares very little for those with broken hearts.
Really! It dismisses its offenses and moves on. Justifying a place of deep hidden shame or rage, and compartmentalizing the warnings God had consistently brought.
People often break the hearts of others by their cruelty, their falseness, their injustice and their coldness.
These stem from a stubborn pride that only The Holy Spirit can address with conviction, and consequences.
Mankind doesn’t like to see people in pain, suffering, struggling! It’s often annoying or, the judgement comes when individuals aren’t prospering or achieving to the level that bullies and cold hearts assume they should by now!
But God cares!
Feeling the deep pruning of some pretty green and fruitful branches these days?
Does it hurt to surrender without fighting the dividing of things of the soul and spirit?
You know that it does.
Friend, your Broken-heartedness draws Him down from heaven. He comes to the broken, the bullied and bruised, with the sweetest tenderness.
Jesus said this about His mission on earth:
“He (the Heavenly Father) has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted,” Isaiah 61:1.
God repairs and restores the hurt, abused and ruined life. He takes the bruised reed, the wilted flower and, by His gentle skill, makes them whole again until they grow into the fairest beauty.
The love, pity, and grace of God ministers sweet blessings of comfort and healing to restore the broken and wounded hearts of His people.
The God of the Bible is the God of those who have been brought low, who BOW LOW, whom He then lifts up into His strength.
God is the God of those who fail and can not go on as it used to be — (not that He loves those who stumble and fall better than those who walk without stumbling) — but He helps them more.
The weak and bullied get more of His grace than those who are strong in their own opinions and actions!
There is a special divine promise which says,
“My power is made perfect in weakness,” 2 Corinthians 12:9.
When we are aware of “our own insufficiency”, then we are ready to receive His divine sufficiency. So in reality, our very weakness is actually a component of strength!
Our weakness is an empty cup which God fills with His own strength. Isn’t that such a beautiful statement?
You might think that your weakness disqualifies you for, strong, beautiful living, or for sweet, gentle, helpful serving.
But really it’s something which if you give it to Christ, He can transform it into a blessing, a source of His power.
Dear friends. I encourage you today to take a moment, right now, and enter into His presence.
Know that His desire is for you to trust Him completely. He will provide where there is no need to grovel. Allow Him to minister to your deepest need, for truly…
…..His grace is sufficient.
In His Shadow,
