My Broken Ones

Jeremiah 31: 12 – 13, 12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. 13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.

So many of My people have lives filled with hurt, disappointment, and disillusionment. But have I not said “all things are working together for the good of those that love Me?” Everything that has happened in their lives has been an opportunity for them to know me intimately. Now, in this season I will turn your mourning into dancing. My people will begin to see that the good and the bad that has happened to them, has birthed their giftings, their callings, and yes even the anointing upon their lives

My Son had to be born a man, and walk this earth as man did, so that He could relate to their hearts, their hurts, their disappointments, and yes even disillusionment. His ministry of interceding at My right hand is so powerful because He is familiar with the infirmities of Our people. There is nothing that has touched the lives of My people that also touched His. He was despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, and even still He bears the sorrow and grief of mankind through His intercession.

Those things that came to destroy My own, will make them. Those things that came at the hand of man, and through the wiles of the enemy, have only served to cause deep intimacy, deep need, deep cleansing, and deep repentance in the lives of My own. Ah these, these are the people that I will greatly anoint, and that I will greatly use in these last days. These that have been broken by life, and its circumstances. For you see, first there must be a shaking, and then there must be a breaking, and then the making. I can only mold and make into the image of My Son those that have been broken.

In this season I will pour out My grace, and My mercy upon these broken ones. And I will restore it all. I will restore to these that which they have lost, and the glory of their latter house, will be greater than the former. The sorrows that they have experienced will become My Glory, as I gently and lovingly breathe life into their broken souls, and their broken spirits.

And they will be vessels of honor in the house of their God, and they will arise with My Glory upon them, and I will send them forth and send them out. They will tell of the miracle working power of their God, to redeem, and restore broken lives. They will be to Me a glory in the earth.

Watch now as I raise up these broken ones, restore it all and send them forth for sing the praises of their God. And I will send them forth to rescue the perishing, even those that are drowning in their sorrows. Watch now as I exchange mourning, and grieving over what could have been, what has been lost, and what should have been for dancing. I will anoint these with the oil of gladness, and they will be for a sign and wonder in the earth.
