God’s Principle Of Brokenness

By Pastor Lew Pizzala

 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit” Psalm 34:18

Your level of brokenness before God determines your usefulness by God. Moses lived to be one hundred and twenty years of age.  The first forty years he thought he was a somebody living in the palace of the king; second forty years he found out that he was a nobody, taking care of his father in laws sheep on the back side of a desert.  The third forty years he found out that God could take a nobody and make a somebody out of him.  What made the difference?  Forty years on the backside of that desert broke him.  The reason a “broken heart” and a “contrite spirit” are so valuable to a believer is because they both pull God in.  Why do the brokenhearted think God to be so far away?  A heart that is broken and contrite over sin is a sacrifice that is well pleasing to God. God is more pleased with a heart that mourns over sin, than when the bullock bleeds beneath the axe.

Prayer:  “Help me not to live in a hardened state less I miss your nearness to my life.”
