The Broken Road

For every Christian who has a had a broken heart, been disappointed, sick, and angry, be careful you are in danger of going down the broken road. The broken road is when a Christian gets their eyes off of Jesus and onto themselves. Be careful it is a slippery slope from focusing on yourself, to becoming self absorb, and having a wrong spirit. I have been angry, hurt, and focused on myself. My heart has been divided.

A heart divided will follow the broken road. You have accepted Jesus as your savior. Experienced the joy of your salvation. Walked in the fruits of The Spirit. Had wonderful communion with The Lord and fellowship with believers. Then life happens. The winds of the enemy blow. Are you like the willow tree that bends and sways, but remains firmly grounded in the Lord or has the enemy eaten away at your insides so much that when the wind blows you snap and become broken?

That has been my journey. This is my struggle. If you have struggled with life, had hurts and pain, then maybe you can relate to my journey. It has been a process of dying to self, kicking and screaming all the way. Praise God, I still have a heart that was aware that this is not a good place and not compatible with the Holy Spirit. Praise God, we have a savior who died for our sins! We have a Heavenly Father who waits with open arms for the prodigal son to return home. Back to the narrow path that leads straight to Him.

Whenever we become self consumed, be grateful when the Holy Spirit comes to burn it out, because our God is a consuming fire. He is a jealous God and will not abide in a divided heart. Are you are on the broken road my friend? Are you in need of Resurrection? Only Jesus can take the broken life and make it whole again.

"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:28-29

"He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi... that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness." Malachi 3:3

"You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God.” Exodus 20:4-5
