The Need To Be Broken

 

(Mark 14:3) “While Jesus was in Bethany sitting at the table in the home of Simon the leper, a woman arrived with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume made from pure nard. She broke open the jar and poured the perfume on his head.”

(Matthew 14:19) “Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and blessed them. Then he broke the loaves in pieces and gave them to his disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.”

(Matthew 21:44) “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”

 

 

No matter how large a ministry, how effective the preaching, or how powerful the anointing of the Holy Spirit, every Pastor will confess that God had to break them before He started to build them to be useful for His kingdom. When we surrender to Christ, the first thing God does is to empty us of all those things that kept us away from Him for so long. He has to therefore break us first.

We also have the responsibility to let go of everything that was important to us before we knew Christ and that can only be achieved by pouring ourselves out at His feet. Everything and everyone we surrender to Him will be returned to us sanctified and multiplied if it is part of His will. This will require aligning our priorities and our value system with His.

This was the very reason God had to make His people wander for 40 years in the desert before bringing them to the Promised Land. He had to break the mold that was full of idol worship, fear, and unbelief in God’s promises, self-pity, slavery, and a mind that had lived for centuries under Pharaoh’s bondage. He got them out of Egypt but now had to get Egypt out of their hearts.

Only after King Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon was broken by God for seven years to literally live like a wild animal in the fields, could He be restored to greatness for God to receive the glory. The first thing he declared when his mind was restored back to him was that there is no other God worthy to be praised. This is exactly where God wants you.

If you don’t fall at the feet of Jesus and allow yourself to be broken, He will end up falling on you and crushing you. He will do this in order to save your soul even if it means that you will suffer for a season in life.


(“Only when Mary’s alabaster box was broken could its contents be poured out as an act of worship. Only when the loaves and fishes were broken could they be multiplied and the hungry multitude be fed. Are you getting the idea? We all have to be broken.” – Bob Gass)

 

God will break you before He can remake you and mold you back to His original plan. It might hurt, but you will be glad He did it.
