God Uses Broken Things

March 24 | Taken from this message by Adrian Rogers

Did you know that God likes broken things? Men throw away broken things, but God never ever uses anything until He first breaks it.

David said in the Psalms that “a broken and contrite spirit, Thou wilt not despise, O God.” Most of us are not being used of God because we have never been broken. One of these days if God breaks you like broken bread and poured out wine, God can use you.

God took a little lad’s lunch and broke it and fed the multitudes. The prophet Jeremiah said, “Break up your fallow ground and sow not among the thorns.” You will never have the crop you ought to have until you put the plow in and the old clods are broken. Even the Lord Jesus Christ took that matzo at the Last Supper and said this, “This is My body which is broken for you.”

Men throw broken things away, but God never ever uses any thing or any body until they are first broken.
