When He can get you out of the way, then He has a chance!
At the age of 40, when Moses was cocky & over-confident & tried to free his people in his own strength, he was a big flop, & had to run for his life without them in a personal exodus of his own.–And it took God 40 years in the wilderness to teach him humility & utter dependence on God, until he no longer even wanted the job!–Then he was ready. He didn’t think he was able, & that’s good!–Because Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity. When you come to the end of your rope, then God has a chance to work.
Brokenness is an uncomfortable place. Sometimes it almost makes you feel like you want to die. But then you’re willing to live–for JESUS! For only from such death to self can life be born anew! Jn.12:24,25: “Let Me make this clear: A single grain of wheat will never be more than a single grain of wheat unless it drops into the ground and dies. Because then it sprouts and produces a great harvest of wheat—all because one grain died. 25:“The person who loves his worldly life & pampers himself will miss true life! But the one who detaches his life from this world and abandons himself to Me will find true life and enjoy it forever!” Gal.2:20; Col.3:3: “For it is no longer you that live, but CHRIST that lives in you, & you are now dead & your life is hid with Christ in God.
So if you feel you are nothing & you’re no good–cheer up! When you’re so weak that you don’t feel capable or sufficient, then God has a chance to take over & do things to suit Himself. Only HE can do it! Just give Him a CHANCE! Let go–& let God! Surrender to Him today!
被破碎是件很难受的事。有时它几乎使你觉得想要死。但之后你便会愿意去活了，为耶稣而活！因为只有经过这样的自我死亡，新生命才能重新诞生！” 被破碎是件很难受的事。有时它几乎使你觉得想要死。但之后你便会愿意去活了，为耶稣而活！因为只有经过这样的自我死亡，新生命才能重新诞生！”我郑重地告诉你们，一粒麦子不落在地里，死了，仍旧是一粒；如果死了，就结出许多子粒来。如果你爱自己的自私生活，为自己而生活，你会想念现实生活！但是，放弃那种自私的生活， 为了我 的缘故, 会找到现实生活，永远享受！” （约12:24,25） “因为现在活着的人不再是你，而是基督在你们里面活着，因为你们已经死了，你们的生命在基督里被神隐藏了！” （加2:20; 3：3）
