The author Vance Havner wrote: “God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is a broken alabaster jar that gives forth perfume…It is Peter weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power.”
True spiritual strength lies not in holding on to ourselves or our possessions but rather in allowing God to have His Will, trusting that our good is intimately attached to His. Only by letting God be Himself can we open ourselves to His life and understand better His love.
The great paradox of being a Christian is, we are strongest when others perceive us to be weak. Where in our weaknesses can God touch us and make us whole?
My dear friends, reach out to God, trust Him, allow Him to find you and once found to touch you. “Through faith we are all children of God through Jesus Christ.” Do not be afraid of your destiny, Faith is our greatest virtue.
