Matthew 14:19, NLT
Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people.
When Jesus was about to feed a multitude of thousands of people, "He broke the loaves," and the bread was multiplied. Notice the blessing was in the breaking. The more He broke it, the more it multiplied and fed a tremendous multitude, with basketfuls of leftovers.
There are times in life when we feel broken. We have broken dreams, a broken heart. When you feel broken, don't get bitter and give up on your dreams. That brokenness is not the end; it's a sign that God is about to multiply. The more broken you are, the more God is going to increase you. The bigger the disappointment, the bigger the blessing. The more they hurt you, the more He's going to reward you. That brokenness may have been meant to stop you, but if you stay in faith, God is going to use it to bless you. The hurt you feel is real, but the truth is that it is only temporary and is setting you up for God to increase you.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are able to take the broken pieces of my life and transform them into blessings. Thank You that I can bring the hurts and disappointments to You and know that You are going to use them to increase me. I believe for basketfuls of leftovers in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen
