I think it depends upon what gets broken.
What is it God wants to break, do you suppose?
I used to think it was me. My selfish ways, my impatience, my hard heart.
What if God is interested in breaking down our walls of unbelief? What if He wants to break the shackles of fear and bondage? What if that is what brokenness is about?
He has revealed Himself to me as my very Life. In the midst of pain and loss He convinced me that I am His. That because of Him I am a new creation. That He is my peace, my patience, and my sufficiency. I would never have come to see His abundance without the pressure of the trial.
What is it I want to break in my horse?
The bondage of old lies about who I am. Scooter has been rescued -- like me. Jesus rescued me from the Domain of Darkness. Scooter came into our new relationship believing things about me that are not true -- the same way I came into my new relationship with Jesus. Scooter operated out of misbelief and this caused him great anxiety and pain -- and the same thing happens in me when I believe lies about God.
I want my horse to know that my heart is good. That I am for him. That I am trustworthy.
Jesus wants me to walk in these same beliefs about Him. And He is committed to revealing Himself to me as my very Life. Now that's beautiful!
