Psalms 34:18 (KJV)
18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Murphy came out of his car and saw how badly damaged it was. A crowd had gathered already, and many were waiting to beat up the reckless drunk taxi driver who bashed Murphy's car. To everyone’s surprise, he only looked up and said “thank you Lord” and drove off. 'How could he not fight or at least get angry' was one of the many comments that ensued. Luis, one of the onlookers who knew Murphy, later met him and asked: “Why were you so calm? You were not even disturbed?” Murphy smiled and asked 'can a broken pitcher hold water?' 'No' Luis responded.

Murphy: Have you noticed that after you became born again, you still do things you really should not do again? You do not want to do them because you know they are wrong, but you still do them?

Luis nodded in agreement.

Murphy: The reason is because you are not yet broken.

Like a clay pot (pitcher), you can no longer hold offenses and sin once you are broken. The reason you respond with anger when pushed to the wall, or give in to evil when under pressure, is not because of the offense or the pressure itself, it is because you still have room for offenses and sin in your heart.

Someone who is broken has come to the end of himself. He has no more confidence in the flesh (or the power of his will), but depends solely on the grace of God and yields his body to the power of this grace. This is the way to live victoriously in Christ.

Go into today remembering that by [human] strength shall no man prevail (see 1 Sam 2:9). But with God, we are more than conquerors.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to fill you with His strength (grace) to prevail.
