PUTTING HUMPTY TOGETHER AGAIN

“I said, ‘God, be gracious! Put me together again – my sins have torn me to pieces’”. 

Ps 41:4 EHP 
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. 
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men Couldn’t put Humpty together again. 
(Children’s Nursery Rhyme) 
We sometimes say of a person who seems to have buckled under pressure, “He just went to pieces”. Sometimes the same form of words is used to describe a poor performance by a sports team. And when a church congregation is beset by arguments and factions with a resultant decline in membership we say it again – “That church has just gone to pieces”. 
The psalmist in Psalm 41 had been assailed by a severe illness. What made it worse was the conviction that he was being punished by God for his sins. That thought was enough to knock the stuffing out of anyone. And the man knew he had gone to pieces. In utter despair he turned to God whom he knew was a God who rescued, redeemed and renewed people – he was a saving God. In making this spiritual move the psalm-writer was doing the best thing he could have done in the circumstances. He knew he was as help- less as “all the king’s horses and all the king’s men”. But God wasn’t helpless. He was helpfulness itself. In fact he specialized in putting broken people together again. 
And Jesus Christ came to bind up the broken-hearted, to preach good news to the poor, and to put together those who had gone to pieces by their much sinning or grave illnesses or both. He still puts the broken “Humpties” of this world together again. If you are broken he will put you together again too. 

PRAYER THOUGHT
Lord, pick me up and put me together again.
