God's Pathway of Brokenness

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Many believers fail to consistently rely upon the Lord. Their independence often manifests itself in various ways—self-reliance, self-righteousness, self-centeredness, or some other sinful attitude. It’s also possible that such people might seem outwardly godly, while remaining inwardly rebellious against the Spirit. Unless we come to the end of ourselves and learn to allow Him to work through us, we will never reach our full potential in Christ.

Remodeled Through Brokenness

By Dr. Charles Stanley

It can be tempting to think we need very little improvement. Ask around, and you'll hear many people concede they could probably use a bit of "maintenance" on one or two problem areas (preferably without being caused any discomfort). Yet most will add, "But I'm a good person." Don't be fooled—the Father refuses to settle for humanity's inadequate view of "good enough." (Continue reading Remodeled Through Brokenness.)

    I thank God a minister lead me to this page. I have so much bitterness and resentment. I just pray and hope someone Godly prays for me to become more like Christ and over come. Trust in the Lord with all your heart for His Word is true and so is He. I lost my son when he was nineteen in a plane crash one of the most important people in my life and I believe this article sums up exactly what and why this happened to me and I don't want it to be in vain. Pray for me:)

    I really needed this to bring me back to the "reality" of God and His work in my life and not to be looking to humanity for those fulfilled experiences.
