|The key to victory!
|Imagine if you will, a beautiful stallion galloping across a meadow, his sleek coat
glistening in the sun, his long mane blowing in the wind. So beautiful, so majestic, so
gifted and powerful; yet absolutely useless to his master until broken. Many of us are
that way. We have so many gifts and talents, so much we could offer God and others,
but absolutely useless to the Master until broken.
David said, "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O
God, you will not despise." (Psalm 51:17)
To be broken is to completely lay aside your personal agenda and yield fully to the
lordship of Christ.
For most of us that doesn't happen until God brings us through a season of heartache.
It's a painful process, but the rewards are enormous.
You see God doesn't want vessels to merely hold the things of His spirit. He wants
broken vessels so that they can poor out into the lives of others.
So, when heartache comes be sure to yield to the process and don't try to fix what
God's trying to break.
