How can I achieve an attitude of brokenness?

Job 42:5-6I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.

Brokenness comes as we more clearly realize God’s holiness in contrast to our own sinfulness. It can give us the distinct impression, as it did to Job, that we are meeting God for the first time.

Ezekiel 20:41When I bring you home from exile, you will be like a pleasing sacrifice to me. And I will display my holiness through you as all the nations watch.

We often need to feel our brokenness before we let ourselves become part of God’s bigger plan. While none of God’s people wanted to be carried away into exile, their homecoming proved to the world that God is powerful to save.
