The Horse is Broken by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/06/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It’s a beautiful thing to watch a horse that’s fast and powerful yet obedient to its master’s commands. A slightest move of the reins can immediately change a horse’s direction.

But before a horse can be useful to its master, it needs to be broken. That doesn’t mean that someone literally breaks its legs. But it means that its will is broken. It becomes compliant and submissive to its rider.

Before you and I can be used by our Master, we need to be broken, too. Brokenness is the shattering of my self-will so the spirit of the Lord Jesus can be released through me.

Psalm 51:17 says: “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” You and I can choose to be broken today. Just submit yourself to His direction and will.

Verse of the Day

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NKJV)
