Jacob at Jabbok learned that the man who is broken by God can be blesses of God (Genesis 32:24-32). It is the crushed grape that yields the wine.
The first condition of being filled is being empty (II Corinthians 12:9-10).
Is a thing that is broken good for anything? Can we drink from a broken glass? Or can we lean upon a broken staff? But though other things may be at the worse for breaking, yet a heart is never at its best till it be broken; for till it be broken, we cannot see what is in it; till it be broken, it cannot send forth its sweetest odor; and, therefore, though God loves a whole heart in affection, yet He loves a broken heart in sacrifice.
Indeed, as David prays, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise (Psalm 51:17).
Brokenness before the Lord is no easy thing. I am so thankful that the one who broke the bread is the One who first blessed the bread (Matthew 14:19).
