Broken, Mended and Made Whole

Scripture John 12:24

I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

Meditation

In the bible God brought several men to brokenness then used them for his purpose. These same men at one time were sinners: Peter was broken of Pride when he denied knowing the Lord at his crucifixion after stating he would never deny him, Jacob selfishly and deceitfully stole Esau‘s birthright and blessing, David committed adultery with Bathsheba the wife of Uriah the same David whom God said was a man after his own heart. Moses who lost all confidence in himself yet led Gods chosen people to a new land.

We have all gone through experiences in our lives that have brought us to our point of brokenness. The journey through transition isn’t always an easy one. One would have to be broken of his former self so that the lord prepares you and makes you better for your next season or just so that you can be more mature and equipped to accomplish the purpose for which he created you.

And the period of brokenness can at times be a long and painful one and may often come with unanticipated losses. You may lose your job, your friendships or relationships, your Joy among other thing. Do not ever despair or lose faith in God because he promises that you shall never be tempted beyond your own limits. Emerge from your season of brokenness stronger. When Jesus was getting ready for his mission, he prayed and fasted for forty days a period where the devil brought so many temptations before him and Jesus kept his faith and focus on his mission. He had had his youth and at that point God was transitioning him into the next face of his life.
