(Read 22:31-34, 54-62 Every One Of Us Makes Tracks through the valley of failure. The question is, How are you going to respond?

Standing For God

by Don Fortner “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1 John 2:15 Worldliness is an undue attachment to this world. It is living for this world–its riches, its honor, its joys and its cares. […]

From The Pit To Rule

by George Whitten Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: When Joseph was thrown into prison, his life was thought to be over.

Does He Know Me?

by Oswald Chambers He calls his own…by name… —John 10:3 When I have sadly misunderstood Him? (see John 20:11-18). It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus. A person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge of doctrine surpasses Jesus, avoiding intimate touch with Him. Why was Mary weeping? […]

Stillness And Silence — Standing For God

by Ashton Oxenden “I was silent; I would not open my mouth–for You are the one who has done this!” Psalm 39:9 “Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10 This stillness and silence befits us, when God lifts up His arm to afflict us. It is of little use at such times […]

Hebrews 9:15-22

For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:15

A Life Of Becoming

Probably the greatest obstacle to understanding God’s purpose for brokenness is this: Most believers think of Christianity as something we do. We pray. We read the Bible. We go to church. We sing hymns. We tithe. We do and do—and assume that’s the Christian life. It’s not.

Authentic Christianity is about becoming rather than doing. The life of faith that God designed involves receiving Jesus into our heart and allowing Him to change our habits, mindsets, beliefs, interests, and concerns so we become more and more like Him.

This realization will change our perspective on the heartache we must endure. You see, when we recognize that the Christian life is about Jesus’ persistent work of “re-creation” in us, then the role of brokenness will make more sense. It’s the process the Lord uses to strip us of things that have become—or may one day become—an obstacle to our spiritual growth. He also uses this tool to address issues we may have declared “off limits” to Him, such as unhealthy behaviors or relationships that we rationalize.

God doesn’t want to be Lord of most of your life; He wants to be Lord of all of your life! So He zeroes in on areas of self-will and self-sufficiency to remove everything within us that relies on “self.” He uses brokenness to remove those inclinations so that we can live moment by moment, day by day, in full dependence on Him.

Open your heart, and ask God to reveal any selfish strongholds. Let Him break any unhealthy behavior patterns in your life. He will.
