So here you are and you’ve has just done a Humpty – Dumpty off the wall and shattered into pieces, but yet, though shattered, there you stand, because life doesn’t go away just because does it? Oh, it’s you, but it’s not you, as you stare into the reality of that surreal nightmarish picture. How? Why? What? yeah all the questions but no answers, track you down, beat you up and step on and grind those already fragmented shards of life into the dirt.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t put you back together again. Can’t fix it! Can’t mend it! Can’t make it better! No, it can’t be repaired because it’s yours and no one could ever understand, not in a million years could anyone get it! Not now, not ever! The Good news is, the King can! The One Sovereign King can do it! He’s got the broken pieces! He’s got the skills! He’s got the plan! He’s got the mercy! He’s got the grace! His life was broken too, so yours wouldn’t have to be. Because He was crushed for you, He’s got life for you! And while He holds you in those arms that carried His cross of death, He’s got you in those skilled hands that took the nails! Those same divine hands that healed the sick, and yeah that raised the dead to new life. He’s in the business of putting lives back together again. Reach out to Him! Get with His program and let Him teach you! Allow Him to work His custom plan from the ground up in your life! God’s words through His prophet, Isaiah, to a stubborn and rebellious people, are words to us today in Isaiah 48:17, “This is what the LORD says, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.”
Although it’s a promise first spoken to Israel, It’s a relevant message for those of us traveling this journey of life in need of guidance and help along the way. So, those broken pieces are fixable, our part is to simply and humbly bend down to pick them up and hand them over and let our Sovereign King do the transforming work in us!
