A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out, till He has brought justice through to victory.” Matthew 12:20 (NIV)

This past season has been brutal. As Paul said, we have been hard pressed on every side, but not crushed (2 Corinthians 4:8). We may feel bruised and like smoldering wick. But we are not in despair, nor have we been snuffed out. We may be a bit tender, but we have not been destroyed! We may have become calloused and hard, of which we need the Lord’s softening touch! Jesus said “I will not break you or snuff you out.”

Yes, justice is coming, and is intensifying! Keep contending for all God has said and promised over your life, your children, your church, our city and nation! Ask the Lord if there is anything you need to repent for. Ask the Lord to heal and strengthen you. Ask Him to prepare you for the times of revivals, awakenings and reformations that are upon us!
