Broken To Bless

Mark 6:41-44 (NIV) 41 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all.

42 They all ate and were satisfied, 43 and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish.

44 The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand.

 Notice the blessing was in the breaking; the more he broke it, the more it multiplied. there are times that we all feel broken; broken dreams, broken promises, a broken heart. when you feel broken, you go through a disappointment, don’t get bitter and give up on your dreams; the brokenness is not the end, it’s a sign that God is about to multiply.

That’s what David said: Psalm 4:1 (AMP) 1 … You have freed me when I was hemmed in and enlarged me when I was in distress… that brokenness, it may have been meant to stop you, but God’s going to use it to increase you.

The loss, the disappointment, the person that didn’t keep their word, they thought they were hindering you, but in fact they were setting you up for God to multiply. you may have gone through more than your share of bad breaks, but take heart; the more broken you are, the more God’s going to increase. the bigger the disappointment, the bigger the blessing.

 God has beauty for your ashes, joy for the mourning. the brokenness is only temporary. don’t settle in the valley, don’t get comfortable there; the valley is not your home, the Shepherd is leading you through the valley. on the other side, there are new beginnings, fullness of joy, great relationships, health and wholeness, dreams coming to pass.

  1. I prayed for God to break me some years back but when He answered I was taken aback by challenges you'd only think of. But it made my heart stronger than ever, to a point where I'd say I'm now as bold and daring as a lion, just because of that incident. This posts inspires me greatly. I do not pray to be broken anymore though. Lol! I love Jesus.
