Why God wants to Break Us
God breaks us not so that we will be ineffective. Don’t be afraid of brokenness. Brokenness is the prerequisite to our transformation. God has to break us first before He molds us. Just like a potter molding a clay.
When God breaks us – it is for our joy knowing that we will never find true happiness in anything but in Him. John Piper said it best, “God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him. He breaks us so that we may be conformed to the image of Christ, who himself conformed to the image of broken humanity.
Matthew 16:25 New International Version (NIV)
25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.
I love how Jared Wilson framed brokenness. “God razes us before He raises us.”
