You may feel broken but God word says that you are beautiful and He shall bless you beyond measure. Sometimes God has to break us from our self-dependency in order to bless us as we seek Him as our only source in the midst of our crisis. It may be a health crisis, a financial crisis, a family crisis, unemployment crisis, an addiction crisis.... whatever the crisis of brokenness and barrenness you are facing today... God says, "I am with you always!"
Today with hope, stand firm knowing that "My All-Sufficiency God shall supply all my insufficiency needs. That, My God, shall bless me and I shall have a great testimony. A testimony of healing, miracles, supernatural breakthroughs, promotion, salvation, victory, restoration.... These are my battle scars of evidence in my story that My God has caused me to overcome that which intended to kill me. "
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. (Genesis 50:20)
The breaking process is painful... It uncovers the power of our flesh but the even Greater Power of Our All-Powerful Almighty Sovereign God. As we wrestle in our brokenness, we cling to God and He blesses us, comforts us, transforms us, heal us, save us, sanctify us, rescue us.... in order to use us for His Glory... We may be left with a limp like Jacob.... battle scars of a divorce, single parenthood, surgery, bankruptcy, the loss of a loved one... but the blessings and beauty of God allow these scars to shine and sparkle in the brilliance of the light of God into our brokenness. We are now soldiers for Christ, experienced, equipped and victorious warriors for the Kingdom of God... Kingdom Enforcers... Purpose Driven!! We may not have understood the process, the pieces of the puzzle, but God works all things together for our good and for His Glory.
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.…" (Isaiah 55:8-9)
Our brokenness allows God's light to shine through us and in us... so that we may be a light for Him to help others in their brokenness. God is saying “I Will Bless You, and You Shall Be a Blessing to nations - globally and generationally!”
“We are all wounded. But wounds are necessary for his healing light to enter into our beings. Without wounds and failure and frustrations and defeats, there will be no opening for His brilliance to tickle in and invade our lives. Failures in life are courses with very high tuition fees, so I don't cut classes and miss my lessons: on humility, on patience, on hope, on asking others for help, on listening to God, on trying again and again and again.”

Let's Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for your Word that brings the assurance that my feelings of brokenness are opportunities and potential for your blessings to transform me. Lord, you provide for me as I grieve in my brokenness. Lord you bestow on me a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. I shall be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. So I muscle up my courage and a mustard seed of faith to speak to every mountain of brokenness in my life - Be moved in Jesus Mighty name. In the sight of GOD in whom I believed, that is, God who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which are not in existence yet... I say today that "I am healed... I am happy... I am whole... I am complete... I am satisfied... I am forgiven... I am free... I am delivered... I shall recover it all...I am debt-free... I am prosperous... I am victorious... My children are saved... My household is saved.... My relationships are restored... I am the light beaming of His Glory... I am an OVERCOMER... I am not broken but beautifully blessed!" I am His and therefore I am confident to make all these prayer requests in Jesus name. Amen.
