In the last three years God has begun to show me the importance of walking in brokenness. To walk in brokenness, you have to let God break you. You have to allow Him to show you your sin, you have to be willing to see it for what it is: sin.
Sin breaks the fellowship, that intimate, sweet fellowship with our Lord. So many of us have become callous to this sin that our hearts are hard. We have a hard time seeing our sin for what it is. We have fancy names for our sin to avoid really seeing them as sin.
True brokenness will lead to revival in your spirit. Once you live with the "roof off with God and walls down with others" you will find a freedom in Christ that is sweet.
If you don't know where to start, can I recommend: Seeking Him bible study. This will lay out a fresh look at revival and why you need it to feel the fresh wind of God's Spirit in your life.
