God Uses Broken Things

Did you know that God likes broken things? Men throw away broken things, but God never ever uses anything until He first breaks it.

David said in the Psalms, “A broken and contrite spirit, Thou wilt not despise, O God.” Most of us are not being used of God because we have never been broken.

Like broken bread and poured out wine, if God breaks you one of these days God can use you. God took a little lad’s lunch and broke it and fed the multitudes.

The prophet Jeremiah said, “Break up your fallow ground and sow not among the thorns.”

You will never have the crop you could have until you put the plow in and the old, hard clods are broken up.

Even the Lord Jesus Christ took that matzo bread at the Last Supper and said, “This is My body which is broken for you.”

Men throw broken things away, but God never, ever uses anything or anybody until they are first broken.
