BROKEN UNTIL WE’RE BENDABLE TO BE MOLDABLE BY GOD©

Helen J. (Snider) Kircher

God’s glory comes when we are broken to the extent of being bendable, and repentance drives us to our knees. We can then be moldable by God because His presence requires our purity.

Our spiritual vision must increase in our inner most being, which in most individuals is not an “instant maturity,” but a process of change that will come in growth stages from within.

Pain, grief, disappointments, disillusionment and failures in my life have been a growth inhibitor in building a deeper relationship with Him, but He gave me the discernment to admit my total helplessness and inadequacy without Him. When I began to trust Him in every decision made in my life, this generated a slow process of change within me that began to extinguish my pride in making sole self-dependency decisions. When He spoke to my heart, a peace and joy began to grow within me as a fruit of the indwelling Holy Spirit

“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime;
Weeping may remain for a night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.”
  Psalm 30:5 NIV

God is pleased when we seek His favor, and He blesses those who earnestly seek His presence. One of Webster’s definitions for the word “blessing” is, “the gift of divine favor.” When we seek divine favor and embrace the cross, our focus, our attitude and our priorities shift. Broken to the extent of becoming pliable to the Master’s hands, we are ready to be molded by His touch into a new vessel of His manifestation.

“But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred
in his hands, so the potter formed it into another pot,
shaping it as seemed best to him.”
  Jer. 18:4 NIV

“ ... like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand.”  Jer. 18:6 NIV

 

In His Name and for His Glory,
