Happy Friday be inspired by the words below courtesy of:
‘…there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.’ – Mark 14:3A breaking precedes God’s multiplication. He breaks me to multiply me.
BUT WHY DOES HE HAVE TO BREAK ME?
1. In nature there is no multiplication or growth without a breaking.In physiology or biology it could be by mitosis or meiosis.Every living thing grows through breaking or division.Yet so often we get stuck in our familiar comfort zones and resist breakings not knowing that there is no growth without breaking.So to multiply you, He must break you.
2. ‘But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.’ – 2 Corin. 4:7We are earthen vessels that must be broken for the power & treasure within to be revealed.The breaking process is a humbling process so that you should never mistakenly think that the power is of you. It eliminates any pride in you so that your boast is in Christ alone.
3. ‘…that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.’ – 2 Corin. 1:4Real ministry flows through the broken places.You comfort others with the comfort that you have received. You would have no real comfort to give if you have never been in need of comfort yourself.
So your pain becomes another’s gain.A real anointing comes from real experiences with God.He breaks you to make you a more compassionate minister of the Gospel.Your anointing is not really found on your trophy wall but in your broken places.So He takes you, He blesses you, He breaks you & then He give you back to the world multiplied!The completion of the multiplication process is in the giving back.It is time to give back.
IT IS IN GIVING BACK THAT THE MULTIPLICATION BECOMES EVIDENT! Determine to Give Back to your world today & always.
