Revelation 21:1-4

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

In the world we live in today, it is so easy to discard things which are broken. After all, they’ve lost their usefulness. Broken dishes, broken tools, broken furniture, broken cars, broken relationships - all get tossed away. Seems as if we live in a disposable world.

But we can be so thankful our Heavenly Father doesn’t operate that way. God doesn’t throw away broken things. Oh no, He specializes in taking great care of broken things. Everything and everyone belongs to Him and when things are broken He has a plan in mind.

HE is the only fixer. He longs to restore, renew, and redeem. He makes all things yielded to Him “NEW”. We are broken by sin. We get broken by selflessness. We get broken by suffering. But He has a plan to make you better than you ever were before. Just look what our verses say about this broken sin cursed earth we live in today. Brand New Day Coming!

Broken hearted? Broken Spirit? Broken home? Broken relationship? Broken fellowship? Broken over a loss? Broken over a tragedy?

We can know the One who longs to hold us and wipe away the tears. He uses the broken for His glory!

A Fiery Furnace Moment

by Margaret Cagle

Asked the King, "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,

You didn't bow down to my image; is that so?

If bowing not when the instruments sound,

You will be cast into the fiery furnace bound."

"If this happens," answered the three to the king,

"Our God, Whom we serve will deliverance bring."

Then the furious King ordered the furnace heated.

They thought these young men were defeated.

To worship God was these three men's desire,

So they were cast bound right into the fire.

The King was amazed when he looked in,

For he saw not three, but he saw four men.

"The fourth man is like the Son of God," said he.

The three men came forth, not bound, but free.

The fire had no power on these three men,

For God delivered the three young men then.

A fiery furnace moment came to these three,

But they still stood true to their God, you see.

If a fiery furnace moment comes your way,

Will you trust in God, or will you go astray?

A fiery furnace moment may come in your life.

It may cause you trouble, woe, and strife.

Just stand for the Lord God through it all.

Trust in His guidance as upon Him you call.

2 Corinthians 5:21

21For he (God) hath made him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

God the Father put all our wrongs on the one who never ever did any wrong, so we could be put right with a Holy God.

Our sins are not covered, concealed, postponed, or hidden. When Jesus blood was applied to our hearts they were pardoned - to be remembered no more.

How could this be? God chooses not to remember them. He forgets nothing unless He chooses to.

Thank you Jesus!
