Break Me, O Lord 

Without cutting the chest of the earth you can’t remove the minerals, precious stones, or diamonds within.  Nor can we get good harvests or crops from the ground without the necessary plowing. In the same fashion, without cutting or grinding stones you can’t get a beautiful sculpture. The process of breaking gives a negative impression on one hand, but on the other hand the breaking process carries a positive aspect.

The process of brokenness is very painful for human beings.  It is unbearable according to human thinking. We are very much frightened about the process of brokenness; we forget that it is a natural process. In this world everybody must go through this process. Brokenness is essential for our healthy spiritual growth, maturity, and for our deeper walk with the Lord.                                      \

                                                      “Jehovah is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart,

                                                     And saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.”(Psalm 34:18)

“Brokenness” is defined as one who is affected, the one who has gone through a lot of pain and suffering, sadness, and gloominess. He is weak, needy, hopeless, and helpless. He has nobody to take care of him; he is without life, the fallen one, the broken one.

If we really want to understand the pains of others, if we want to help them in a better way and receive the spiritual blessings, then this process of brokenness is essential and important.

A very few among us can pray this prayer; “Lord, break me O Lord!”

  • It is a difficult prayer.           
  • It is a prayer which is full of tears.
  • It is a painful prayer.
  • This is a prayer of total obedience.
  • This is a prayer which gives the Lord an opportunity to completely fulfill His will in our lives.
  1. The Loaves were broken.  (Matt 14:13-21; Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:10-17)

 In these passages we see an incident where Jesus fed more than five thousand people with five loaves and two fish. In these three passages we see a common thing: Jesus Christ took those loaves, He looked toward heaven and blessed them; He broke them and gave them to his disciples.

After the breaking of the loaves, many people were fed. In order to be a real believer in Christ, we must go through this process. We must give ourselves voluntarily into the hands of the Lord so that He might bless us; He should not only bless us but he must also break us. Without going through the process of brokenness, we can never receive spiritual blessings and spiritual growth. We must die to our self, our ego, our pride—not by murmuring or by compulsion, but we should say, “O Lord, not my will but Thy will be done.

”Jesus said; “Nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”(Luk 22:42)

  1. The alabaster box was broken.  (Matt 26:6-7; Mark 14:3; John 12:3)

 In these Gospels we read about another incident. A woman is mentioned. She showed her love and reverence for Jesus by putting a very precious ointment upon His head.If we carefully read this passage, we see that the alabaster box was broken. This process of breaking showed her reverence. The house was filled with the sweet aroma or fragrance. Behind the breaking of the alabaster box we can see the brokenness of this woman and her material sacrifice. It is thought that the worth of this perfume was equal to one year’s wages of labor.

If we want to show our love and reverence for the Master, and we want that other lives may receive the fragrance from our life then the acts of sacrifice and brokenness are very essential.

“But thanks be unto God, who always leadeth us in triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest through us the savor of his knowledge in every place.” (2 Corinthians 2:14)

If we really want to spread the Good News then the process of sacrifice and brokenness is very important. 

  1. The pitchers were broken.(Judges 7:19)

 In the seventh chapter of Judges we read a very interesting incident of how God defeated the Midianites and the Amalekites. From thirty two thousand men available for battle the Lord chose ten thousand. Then from these the Lord selected only 300 men. Yet the Midianites and the Amalekites numbered like a multitudes of locusts.

“And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like locusts for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand which is upon the sea-shore for multitude.” (Judges 7:12)

 Gideon divided the three hundred men in three groups. He handed them a trumpet and a pitcher and in every pitcher there was a torch. This small army of Israel surrounded the camp of the enemy at night. Then at a fixed time, on the order of Gideon, the trumpets were blown and the pitchers were broken. The light from the torches shone out of the pitchers and created great panic and confusion in the enemy camp. The Lord used the sword of every person against his companion in the camp.

 “And they blew the three hundred trumpets, and Jehovah set every man's sword against his fellow, and against all the    host; and the host fled as far as Beth-shittah toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel-meholah, by Tabbath.”(Judges 7:22)

 These pitchers were ordinary ones made of clay. When broken, the light of the torches gave the enemy the impression that a great army was attacking. These pitchers were broken at just the right time, not before or after the due time. They were broken at the time which was commanded by Gideon. In the same way at the right time brokenness is very essential for us. If we are broken before or after God’s timing we can’t fulfill the purpose that He has for our life. Obedience is very important for brokenness.\

Saint Paulwrites that believers are earthen vessels:

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves;”(2 Corinthians 4:7)Unless we are ready to be broken, the light of the Lord cannot reflect through us.  Jesus said, “Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

  1. The body of Christ was broken. (26; 47 to Matt 27; 50, Mark 15, Luke 23, John 19, Philippians 2; 7-11)

 

For the forgiveness of our sins Jesus humbled himself. He suffered; He was badly beaten and they spat at his face. He was numbered with the wicked.

“Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors: yet he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53:12)

His side was pierced with a spear. A crown of thorns was put on His head. His hands and feet were pierced. His body was broken for our salvation. Through the breaking of Jesus’ body the relationship between a sinful man and holy God was restored. Due to the obedience of Jesus and the breaking of his body, He was given a name which is above every name. One day every knee shall bow before Him and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord.

“…and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:11)

Jesus Christ presented His body to be broken and gave us an example that we must be ready to be broken in order to obey Him.

  • Do you totally obey the Lord?
  • Do you desire for His nearness?
  • Do you want to receive spiritual blessings?
  • Do you want your “fragrance” to reach other people?
  • Do you want others to be spiritually enriched through you?
  • Do you want others to be spiritually strengthened through you??
  • Do you want the light of Jesus to reflect through your life?

If you have this desire in your heart then you need to be broken. Surrender yourself to the will of the Lord; give yourself totally into the hands of the Lord. Give up your self, your ego, your pride.

Perhaps at this moment you are going through sickness, financial depression, spiritual decline, opposition in your church, evangelistic sluggishness; people may say wrong things against you, or you have family problems. It is possible that Lord is breaking you through these events. It is very important that through your free will you submit yourself unto the Lord so that He might break you and many would be blessed through you.  Fully trust on the Lord.

“He does break us but does not allow us to be scattered.”

“For he maketh sore, and bindeth up;

He woundeth, and his hands make whole.”

(Job 5:18)

He has given us this promise: “….. for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee.”(Hebrews 13:5)

May the Lord richly bless you.
