"A broken spirit who can bear it?" (Proverbs 18:14 NASB).
The Bible says that no person can bear it when his or her spirit is broken. Not only is it impossible to bear, but it is also impossible for a person to mend. God alone can mend a broken spirit.
"A broken spirit comes from a broken heart," says Dr. Myles Munroe. "When you have had your soul torn, it affects your entire life. It causes you to have a depressed spirit. The trauma of a broken spirit is very real, and it is almost hellish in the sense that no one can save you from it. God is the only one who can repair a spirit."
Dr. Linda Mintle says, "Nothing in God's economy is beyond repair. God does His best work with broken pieces. If you look in the Bible, He takes people who are broken and wounded, and He restores them and uses them mightily. With faith and a belief in Jesus Christ, you can be totally transformed and free. That is a promise."
God promises to save anyone whose spirit is broken and bruised. Turn to Him for healing and renewal.
"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" (Psalm 34:18).
