Choose the Pathway of Brokenness.

March 23, 2023 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

So that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow—in heaven and on earth and under the earth. —Philippians 2:10

We will all be broken—sooner or later. We can choose to be broken or we can wait for God to crush our pride. If we resist the means God provides to lead us to brokenness, we do not avoid brokenness—we simply make it necessary for God to intensify and prolong the process.

Those who refuse to be broken will pay a painful price: “One who becomes stiff-necked, after many reprimands will be shattered instantly—beyond recovery” (Prov. 29:1).

For a time, we may succeed in resisting the will of God; He may allow us to continue walking in the pride of our hearts. But eventually, God will bring down everything that exalts itself against Him. There will come a day when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

What is the alternative? Choose the pathway of brokenness.

Make it Personal

Are you resisting the will of God in something? Choose to humble yourself before Him and be broken.
