Breaktime: Broken Pieces
The Lord protects and preserves them— they are counted among the blessed in the land— he does not give them over to the desire of their foes. Psalm 41:2
David had boundless confidence from the knowledge that God protected him while he was in battle. David's struggle was an opportunity for God to show himself to David. The Psalmist, David, experienced many troubles throughout his life, but he consistently overcame those situations.
It is often during the seasons of pain that our confidence in God grows. We all know the saying, “we can become either bitter or better” in the time of trials. We may cringe at the fact that God is doing something even greater through it all. But often, it is in those low times that we call out. It is in the season of pain when our hearts gain strength from relying on God’s love and grace.
It is hard to imagine how God can use those low spots to bring about the change He desires to see in us. We all know the brokenness of Jesus brought us our salvation. God can use the broken pieces in our life to show us more important things. He is our protector. We will receive the blessing when God is our portion.
