Break It!

      In Mark 14, a woman with a precious oil in an alabaster box went to Simon’s house to worship Jesus. According to scripture, she broke the box and poured the oil upon Jesus’ head. Notice , she broke it. This scripture reminds me that there are things in our lives that sometimes need to be broken.

      Some of those things that need to be broken are:
- strongholds,
- addictions, and
- unhealthy relationships
        When something has been broken , it has been shattered - often beyond man’s repair. But, God is able to:
- repair your shattered situation,
- put together everything that the devil has broken and
- return that which the enemy has stolen (David’s Ziglag
- give you double for your trouble (Job), and
- to restore (it, you, them) better than it ever was before.

     Sometimes, God will take the broken stuff and use it as a foundation to make the new stuff. On one occasion in the Bible, after Jesus had preached to thousands of people (Matthew), the people were hungry. Jesus took a child’s fish lunch, blessed it and BROKE it. When He BROKE it, the Bible tells us that it multiplied from two fish and five loaves to an excess of twelve baskets of leftovers.
    He can not use the old broken stuff if you are trying to pick it up and put it back together. You can not have the new and repaired situation if you are trying to hold on to the old broken, busted and disgusted situation. God does not need your help, nor does He need mine. He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20)
    So, I challenge you to break whatever it is that has you bound and give it to Him . Old things will be passed way, all things will become anew. And, as long as you stay connected to THE source, He will shatterproof the new thing in your life and give it abiding power so that it remains stable and fixed for your enjoyment and for His glory!
