Thought for the Week by Pastor Diana Rutherford

by Struthers Cumbernauld

'Gather up the broken pieces that nothing be lost.' John 6:12

Do you ever feel broken? Heartbroken through the decisions of another, by your own foolish choices or perhaps by the accusations thrown at you by the enemy of our souls?
Satan, who goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, is not slow to tear and wound when he finds an opportunity.

Even the 'broken pieces' matter to God. He gathers them up into His arms that nothing will be lost. Let Him gather you into Himself and comfort you. 'Thy gentleness hath made me great.' Psalm 18:35. When we are comforted in the arms of our God, then we are strengthened.

Satan will not stop fighting for you until you are lost. Never stop fighting Satan! Fight on to do what is right and to win others into the kingdom. By His gentleness He has gathered you (the broken pieces) and strengthened you in Himself.
