Not Easily Broken – Beloved Women – March 13, 2019
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. - Jeremiah 17:14 ESV
Did you know that an egg is built up of eight different layers? The outside layer, which is the shell, is what keeps its contents safe on the inside. In order to get what’s inside of the egg, you have to continually crack it until it becomes broken. Even when the egg becomes broken, what’s on the inside of it is still usable.
On the inside of us, the Lord has placed our gifts, our talents and his anointing which is protected by outer shell - the body. God wants to use what's on the inside of us for the upbuilding of his kingdom. And the more that we grow in him, the more that what’s on the inside of us becomes known.
Life has a way of cracking us to the point where we become broken. The enemies job is to try and break us to the point that we feel like we are unusable by tormenting us through our past failures and mistakes. But no matter how broken we become God is still able to use us. Through His blood, we can find healing, deliverance, freedom, and peace.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You that though my issues may be many and it seems as if they have lasted for eternity that just like the woman with the issue of blood I too will forever find myself chasing after You. For in you I’m made whole again no matter how broke or cracked I may become. In Jesus Name, I pray. Amen.
What areas in your life do you need to be healed? How can you allow the brokenness of your life to be an example for others?
