When Everything Breaks
I know personally, I pray and ask God, “God, why can’t you make things easier? I thought if I followed you everything would be good and comfortable and nice.” I look back and flip through the pages of the story that God has written of my life and I realize that when God does something amazing in my life, in my heart, it’s when everything breaks.
We rely on ourselves so much and sometimes we forget that God is there to take our burdens, to listen to our worries and doubts. Sometimes, we try to be our own saviors, by relying on ourselves, instead of on Him. It’s when everything breaks that we realize how much we need Jesus as our savior.
The Gospel is about Jesus coming down and being our savior, it’s about people who are broken, people whose lives have fallen apart, who need Jesus. That’s us. We are those people. I’m with you, I want to do all in my power and ability to fix my problems by myself. Coming before God and relying on Him may be difficult because of our pride, our denial that we’re broken and need Jesus.
It’s when you let those walls down, humble yourselves, and let Jesus Christ come into your life, that you find peace and reassurance in the Lord. When everything breaks, Jesus is the only truth that we know. When we are lost, He is the one that leads us home.
In Isaiah 41:10, it says “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you. Surely, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
