Breaktime: Brokenness

Brokeness
11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.  Psalm 51:11

It wasn’t that David feared God taking away his presence as much as a plea for more of God. He was ashamed of where his heart had gone, deep in sin. He is filled with guilt and experiencing a broken relationship with God. The inner man of David no longer sensed God’s nearness even though David is known for a man who chased after God’s heart. David himself had a broken heart.

When our relationship with God is strained, we should feel the distance. We can ignore the problem and continue in the distance, but we all know this only leads to further heartache. The answer in brokenness is admitting the problem, and for David, he asked, desired God’s nearness.

When our heart feels the distance, it shows how much we require God. Genuine contentment comes from the relationship we have with God. We are at our best living in harmony with God, while the opposite of this is living in brokenness with God. God desires to live in harmony with us and like David, we need to come with a humble heart seeking God. Invite God into all your broken places and find His presence consuming you.
