Think on these things: The Strength in Brokenness

Standard

There is an oxymoron throughout the Bible. It says that brokenness is strength. How can this be? How can brokenness be strength? In order to use men and women to their fullest extent, the Lord has to break His servants so that they might have a new kind of strength that is not human in origin. It is strength in spirit that is born only through brokenness.

  • Paul was broken on the Damascus road.
  • Peter was broken after Jesus was taken prisoner.
  • Jacob was broken at Peniel.
  • David was broken after his sin with Bathsheba.

The list could go on of those the Lord had to break in different ways before they could be used in the Kingdom.

When we are broken, we see the frailty of human strength and come to grips with the reality that we can do nothing in our own strength. Then, new strength emerges that God uses mightily. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

Do not fear brokenness, for it may be the missing ingredient to a life that emerges with a new kind of strength and experience not known before. Pray for a broken and contrite heart that God can bless.

Prayer of praise and thankfullness for daily needs met

Standard

Father and Saviour,
Lord I praise you,
You are a divine God who sees favor in a lowly human such as me. I thank you for taking the time out to care for my family, friends and loved ones. I thank you for meeting my needs and feeding me everyday; for clothing me and for some where to lay my head at night. Jesus, I thank for looking out for me from the womb, until now. Lord your are surely worthy of every praise and thankfulness, in Jesus name, amen.

Prayer of Reflection

Standard

Thank you Lord,
My life has not been easy and the more I reflect or look back on the past, in the tough times; it was you who brought me through. When I was hurt, despondent, lied to, disobedient, angry, downtrodden, abused, used and hanging in the balance of life; Jesus you were always there, to get me through. Though in those moments, I might have forgotten to thank you Savior; I want to say thank you now.

Jesus, for those moments of deliverance to come in the present and in the future, I want to extend my gratitude now Father. I pray you will always be there for me and help me never to be ungrateful, in Jesus name amen.

Pray, aim high and stay focused

Standard

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old shotgun and three bullets. Therefore, he decided that he would go out and kill something for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit and he shot at the rabbit and missed it. Then he saw a squirrel, fired a shot at the squirrel, and missed it. As he went further, he saw a wild turkey in the tree and he had only one bullet, but a voice came to him and said, “Pray first, aim high and stay focused.”

However, at the same time, he saw deer which was a better kill. He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattle snake between his legs about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattle snake.

Still, the voice said again to him, “I said ‘pray, aim high and stay focused.” So, the man decided to listen to the voice. He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree and shot the wild turkey. The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer. The handle fell off the gun, hit the snake in the head, and killed it.

And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond. When he stood to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer and a turkey to eat. The snake (Satan) was dead simply because the man listened to God.

 ***Bottom line:

Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God. Pass this on in order that someone else might be blessed. Never let others discourage you concerning your past. The past is exactly that – “the past.” Live every day one day at a time. And remember that only God knows our future and that he will not put you through any more than you can bear. Do not look to man for your blessings but look to the Lord. He can open doors for you that only He is able to do. Doors that you will not slip through but doors that only He has prepared in advance for you in your favor.

Wait, and be still, patient: keep God first and everything else will follow.

 

The Lord’s Prayer

Standard

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name,
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory,
Now and forever, Amen.

The 23rd Psalm

Standard

The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’ sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

Psalm 23, King James Version
