The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are, crushed in spirit. There is something about reaching a breaking point that causes us to seek the Lord more sincerely. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Some things in our lives need to be, broken: pride, self-will, stubbornness, and sinful habits, for example. When we feel our brokenness, God compensates. I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit.
To many of us, broken things are, despised as worthless, but God can take what has been, broken and remake it into something better, something that He can use for His glory. Broken things and broken people are the results of sin. You will use the Bible verses below to continue to trust God.
Psalm 34:18 – The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 147:3 – He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Isaiah 57:15 – For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity. Whose name is Holy; I dwell in the top and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit. To revive the spirit of the ordinary, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
John 12:24 – Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit.
Galatians 2:20 – I am, crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Matthew 11:28 – Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mighty God, I give you thanks for fixing the chaos and brokenheartedness in my life today. I give you the glory for coming to my aid so soon, and I will continue to worship your precious name by the grace of Jesus Christ, Amen.
