Bruised Reeds and Smoldering Wicks

Bruised Reeds and Smoldering Wicks


“A bruised reed He won’t break, And smoking flax He won’t quench, Until He sends forth justice to victory;’ Matthew 12:20

Take a look at a bruised reed on the water’s edge—as soon as slender, sturdy, and tall— now bowed and bent.  Are you a bruised reed?  You had been upright and durable, rooted within the riverbed of confidence.  Then you definately had been bruised by harsh phrases, a pal’s anger, a partner’s betrayal, faith’s rigidity, or your individual failure.

Is there something nearer to demise than the smoldering wick on a candle?  When you blazed with religion.  Then they mentioned your concepts had been silly, your goals had been too lofty.

However the theme of the New Testomony is that God is the pal of the wounded coronary heart and the keeper of your goals.  Christ met folks in any respect factors of ache.  By His contact bruised reeds straightened and smoldering wicks had been ignited.
