FIREPROOFED part 2

Are feeling burned?

Continuing my  series “FIREPROOFED ” this weekend.

Part two is dealing with being fireproofed against a Broken Spirit.

Proverbs 18:14 says it perfectly,  The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, But who can bear a broken spirit?

If a persons “spirit” is dysfunctional ….everything else seems bad.

The reality is that there are many things that can burn you and break you.

Here are just a few we must guard against.

1. DECISIONS WE DON’T AGREE WITH.

2. FALSE ACCUSATION ABOUT OUR CHARACTER.

3. THINGS THAT RUB YOU THE WRONG WAY.

4. DELAY OF A DREAM.

5. JEALOUSY (when it seems like others get ahead but you get left behind)

6. REJECTION FROM PEOPLE.

Jesus is the only way to fireproof ourselves from being burned and broken.

His promise to us is found in  Isaiah 43:2 “When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. ” (niv)

Remember, God can’t use you if you are burned out, beaten up, and have a broken spirit.

When it comes to your spirit, Protect it and fireproof it with God’s Word.
