Matthew 21:44 KJV And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
It can be difficult to understand this verse until the Lord has started to work on breaking you, removing unrighteous things in you and your life that work against His will. I for one never fully understood this verse until this year, more recently, as the Lord began to break areas of my life that needed healing. There are many pieces of us that are like broken bones that were not set correctly as they tried to heal. The Lord must break these “bones” in us in order to set them properly for true healing to begin.
I know I didn’t fully appreciate and understand this verse until I was going through that exact process.
We are broken as we fall onto Christ, removing all unrighteousness, to be made whole through Him. Yet those who choose not Christ will perish.
