House Of Broken Branches

House Of Broken Branches…

From ancient times, God promised He would raise up the fallen tabernacle of David. The word in Hebrew for David’s “tabernacle” is “sukkah.” What is a sukkah? It’s a dwelling specifically made of broken branches.

In Romans 11, the apostle Paul speaks of the Jewish people as branches broken off from the Olive Tree. Thus, the Jewish people who turned away from Jesus, though they are the natural branches, they are, for a time, broken off. But in the end times, God took those broken branches from all over the earth and gathered them back together in Israel. And through their broken lives, He built a tabernacle, the reborn nation of Israel, a sukkah made for His return.

The Lord loves to build with broken things, to recycle, to restore, and to redeem – not just sukkahs, and not just nations, but lives. The same God of Israel, the God of broken branches, is the one who will take all the broken things of your life and use them all to build something beautiful – if you let Him.

Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. Hosea 6:1

Lift up to the Lord anything in your life or in those around you that is broken. Seek the restoration, healing, and redemption of the broken branches.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
