• “Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don’t need to search any further for security.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Broken or Crushed? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/13/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Jesus once said something interesting. He described Himself as the “stone that the builders rejected.” Then He said, “Whoever falls on that stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” What does that mean?

It tells me that everyone will experience brokenness. Some will experience brokenness in this life by humbly giving up their own desires and letting Christ live through them. Those are the people who “fall on the stone.”

Others will refuse. God may allow them to walk in pride for a while. But eventually, either in this life or the next, He’ll bring down everything that exalts itself against Him. That’s what Jesus meant by being ground into powder.

Have you fallen on the Stone, choosing to humbly submit your will to God’s? Or are you still approaching God in pride, in danger of being crushed?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss
