The Breaking and the Blessing ( by FennyWest)

The Breaking and the Blessing go hand in hand

Saint, get this truth and you will understand

All sunshine and no rain will make a desert

And all rain and no sunshine will cause deluge.

 

God is good in all He does, in all His ways

Because His ways are higher than our ways

So trust Him, regardless of what you go through

Count on His faithfulness to bring you through.

 

He is a God Who gives a song in the night

So no matter what, you can stand in you night.

Convince yourself that He is always there

And know without a doubt that He always cares.

What! You don’t want the breaking?

Then you don’t want the blessing;

Because the blessing and the breaking

are two sides of the same coin.

12        Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; Job42:12

10        But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker, Who gives songs in the night,Job35:10

25        For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth; Job19:25

” Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

22   In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.Job1:21-22

14   If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, Till my change comes.

Job14:14

You are glad you left Egypt at last on your way to the promised land and what happens?

You look back and you’re greeted with an armada of Pharaoh’s army in hot  pursuit and the Red Sea in front of you.

Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.

The blessing and the breaking go hand in hand.

God is still in control.

This donkey had a misfortune of falling into a dry disused well.

The owner tried to rescue it but got fed up when his attempts yielded no fruit.

He decided that the donkey was old anyway and the well was a nuisance so he would bury the donkey and call it quits.

He asked his family and neighbours to help him close the well and bury the donkey.

They all took shovels and started throwing dirt on the donkey.

The donkey was horrified and wailed in disbelief asking for a reprieve but it was ignored.

There was silence and the owner thought it was dead.

Looking into the well later he saw what stunned him. With each dirt that they threw on the donkey, it simply shook it off and step up.

And so the donkey continued to shake off the dirty and step up until it came out of the well and strutted off happily ever after.

The donkey got a testimony through its demise and test- a blessing from the breaking.

It is not what happens to you that matters but how you handle what happens to you.

When the breaking comes, don’t despair, it will birth a blessing in the fulness of time.

paul in a basketHe was preaching the Gospel and all hell broke loose.

They stoned him, imprisoned him, beat him with rods, falsely accused him. He endured a catalogue of woes . But through this breaking he obtained a great blessing and was a great blessing and will continue to be a great blessing through his 13 best sellers of all-time.

Breaking and Blessing go hand in hand.
