Broken but Useable

The Watered Soul: Broken but Useable

Jan 19, 2011

Broken but Useable

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not us. 2 Corinthians 4:7

 

2Cor 4-7

 

Attempting to carry something of value in a broken container is counterintuitive. Yet it's amazing that God chooses to use broken people like myself to carry the essence of Himself.

It is amazing isn't it? That the Lord would chose to use us - broken as we are - for His glory! Thank you, Lord.

Wanda, your words bring me right back to my meditation early this morning: "If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself." - 2 Timothy 2:13

Loved this picture -

And yes, God works in counterintuitive ways. His Wisdom seems foolish to the world. That's at least ONE of the reasons I love Him so...

Those broken containers?

They're still broken, but Jesus sealed them with His Blood and they are filled to abundance with the Holy Spirit!

GOD BLESS!

I'm so glad also that He uses broken vessels or where would I be.

So broken yet worthy to be a vessel for God. I want to be willing and ready.
