“Who told you to remain in your brokeness? Surely that message was not from God.”~TB
The biggest lie the devil wants you to believe is that you are broken and that you will never overcome your circumstance. It doesn’t help matters when you look to other broken people, cling to their broken solutions, and wallow together in your self-imposed exile. Friends, these lies aren’t from God. The Bible is so important because it helps you navigate these falsehoods. The truth is, you are wonderfully made in Him and His power and spirit lie within you. When you remain in your ignorance, you suffer the atrocities of this world, because you are following the wicked.
Without God, you are like a leaky clay pot, trying to use human understanding to patch your holes! In your stupor, you leak all over the place, infecting one another with evil solutions that magnify your brokenness. Reject those lies that plague your mind and you will find your way to the truth. Look to the Word and you will find that when you rely on God’s Truth, He encapsulates your leaky vessel, sealing any brokenness that once was. In God, your leaky vessel is no more as you have become set aside as His vessel. Once He has claimed you, rest in the truth that He has set you free.
Are you still holding onto your brokenness or are you ready to receive your Holy repairs?

1O God, pagan nations have conquered your land, your special possession. They have defiled your holy Temple and made Jerusalem a heap of ruins.
2They have left the bodies of your servants as food for the birds of heaven. The flesh of your godly ones has become food for the wild animals.
3Blood has flowed like water all around Jerusalem; no one is left to bury the dead.
4We are mocked by our neighbors, an object of scorn and derision to those around us.
5O LORD, how long will you be angry with us? Forever? How long will your jealousy burn like fire?
6Pour out your wrath on the nations that refuse to acknowledge you— on kingdoms that do not call upon your name.
7For they have devoured your people Israel, making the land a desolate wilderness.
8Do not hold us guilty for the sins of our ancestors! Let your compassion quickly meet our needs, for we are on the brink of despair.
9Help us, O God of our salvation! Help us for the glory of your name. Save us and forgive our sins for the honor of your name.
10Why should pagan nations be allowed to scoff, asking, “Where is their God?” Show us your vengeance against the nations, for they have spilled the blood of your servants.
11Listen to the moaning of the prisoners. Demonstrate your great power by saving those condemned to die.
12O Lord, pay back our neighbors seven times for the scorn they have hurled at you.
13Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will thank you forever and ever, praising your greatness from generation to generation.
