The Broken Thing

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart-- These, O God, You will not despise. (Psalms 51:17)

We can see throughout Bible history that the people and things that are most broken are used the most by our Lord for His glory. It was when Jesus took the loaves of bread on the two different occasions and broke them, that the food was multiplied and became enough to feed thousands of people with much left over.  When a grain of corn is put in the ground it becomes broken up as it dies and the inner parts of that corn sprouts forth and more ears of corn with 100’s of grains of corn are produced.  When Mary broke that alabaster box, making it useless,  the perfume that was confined in the bottle filled the house where our Lord was at.
It was when Jesus allowed His broken body to be broken to pieces by the thorns, the nails, and a spear, that his inner life was poured out like living waters for the sinner to drink and live.  Those people that are broken in wealth, broken in their ambition, have a broken worldly reputation, broken in their worldly affections, those who are despised by the world, the ones that seem to be plain helpless and forsaken, are the ones that God will use for His Glory. God used people like Moses, Joseph, and David to do His will for His glory. God can take hold of our failures and use us for His Glory.
