A Broken and Contrite Heart

Psa. 51:17(KJV) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

A Broken and Contrite Heart Hebrew Meaning

The Hebrew word used here for the word “contrite” does not mean humble – but it rather means “crushed to powder.”

Do you blame God when broken or going through trials?  The state of brokenness, being crushed and oppressed is Not from God.  The Word promises he will Never leave you or forsake you. In fact, He will stay near you during your brokenness, and if you let Him, He will deliver you out of it!

Brokenness is the Lord’s method of dealing with ourself-life—that desire within us to independently from Him.  God’s way of looking at it is dealing with the flesh part of our thinking and actions opposite of God’s way – to bring every area of our lives into submission to His will.

Many times as Christians we Look at Brokenness the Wrong Way Example:

  • Brokenness as chastisement but it is not chastisement
  • Brokenness as punishment but is not punishment.

The Lord allows the process of breaking in your life because He cares about you and He wants you to learn to live“not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit” (Zech. 4:6).

Brokenness In Order For Transformation

We are broken in order to purify or remove from our hearts and mind pride, idols, wrong attitudes, wrong beliefs, sins, etc.  Going through brokenness is painful and not a pleasant experience.  The purpose to change our wrong thinking and actions to line up to God’s ways.

Brokenness involves a bold and active denial of our own ungodly desires. It involves deliberate surrender, sacrificial obedience, discipline and self-control.

Psalm 50:15, “Trust Me in your times of trouble and I will rescue you, and you will give Me glory.”
