Put the trumpet to your lips and give the warning. Be like an eagle over the LORD’s house. The Israelites have broken my agreement. They have not obeyed my law. Hosea 8:1 ERV
A broken heart is a state of extreme grief, intense emotional stress or pain, despair, disillusionment and devastating sorrow, one feels, especially from disappointment in love, the death of a loved one or the ending of a romantic relationship. Our text reveals how the breaking of God’s heart.
Beloved, every child of God has a high capacity to bring great joy to Him and can also bring Him a broken heart and grief, —a foolish child griefs, upsets and brings bitter sorrows to the parents, and vice versa [Proverbs 17:25]. The degree of brokenheartedness a disappointment brings is always a reflection of the depth of love involved. The rejection of God’s promises and rebellion against His teachings, the breaking of His covenant, defying of His revelation, and revolting against His law, gives Him a broken heart, and causes the enemy to swoop down or descend on the Lord’s temple and people like a vulture [Hosea 8:1]. Every child of God as His mouthpiece, is to set the trumpet to his lips, announcing and warning of the danger and impending judgment of breaking God’s heart! Knowing who you’re, that you’re deeply loved by God and that He’s deeply disappointed and heart broken when you disobeyed Him, should be the basis of your confidence, security and hope, as well as driving passion to always please Him, —you’re no longer to live according to the sinful nature, but according to the Spirit, who leads you to stop setting your mind on what the sinful nature desires but rather on what the Spirit desires [Romans 8: 4-6].
Grace upon grace!
