Prepare to be shattered

Prepare to be Shattered and Broken

Once there was a young man who prayed loudly in church and said" Lord I want to be used by you to spread your word all around the world". A very old couple invited him for dinner that night, as the old lady was passing the plates the young man went to take the plate from the old lady and the plate fell. And shattered into pieces, they spread everywhere and even in the kitchen pieces of the glass could be seen. The young man was shocked, the elderly couple looked at him and smiled then said if you want to be used by God to spread his word all around the world, prepare to be shattered because a whole plate does not spread like a shattered and broken one does. Brothers and sisters sometimes God has to break us and shattered us to use us so the glory could be to him and not to us. In our wholeness and prideness we are useless towards God. For God cannot receive Glory when man is puffed up in pride. Look at all those in history, Samson defeated more Philistines when he was blinded then when he could see, Beethoven compose his greatest music when he was almost totally deaf like the last five piano sonatas, the Missa solemnis, the Ninth Symphony, with its choral finale , and the last five string quartets.  The Bible states 2 Corinthians 1:3-6

[3]Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,

[4]who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

[5]For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.

[6]Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.


It is only when we gone through a terrible situation in our lives that we could speak to others who are going through it aswell. If I don't experience your problem I won't be able to help you .So God breaks and shattered us to speak to broken and shattered people. Who is pretty much everyone in some point of thier lives.
