Do you have a broken spirit?

A lot of people in our time could be considered broken.
I don’t know what to make of it.

The Works of God

Do certain words ever leap off a page at you?

My reading through the Bible yesterday had me in Exodus 6.  God has heard the prayers of the people of Israel and seen their oppression.  Moses has spoken to Pharaoh, and his response is to make it significantly worse for the people of Israel.  Even Moses accuses God: “you have not delivered your people at all (Exodus 5:23).”  God responds, “Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh (Exodus 6:1).”

And the people can’t hear it: Moses spoke thus to the people of Israel, but they did not listen to Moses, because of their broken spirit and harsh slavery (Exodus 6:9).

That phrase, ‘because of their broken spirit,’ crashed into my brain and then exploded.

I know what a broken spirit feels like.  Many of you know it as well when your hopes have been crushed one more time…
