Humpty Dumpty

“God, pick up the pieces. Put me back together again. You are my praise!” Jeremiah 17:14 MSG

How many of you all remember Humpty Dumpty? Humpty Dumpty is a character in an English nursery rhyme. He is portrayed as an egg. The first recorded version of the rhyme dates to late eighteenth century England.

The modern-day version of this nursery rhyme goes like this:

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 Dumpty together again. With the help of the Lord and spiritual insight, let’s take another look at this nursery rhyme from days of old and apply it to our lives today. Let’s break it down shall we.

Humpty Dumpty, what’s in a name you ask? We all know now much it means to have someone call us by name or for us to call others by their names. When God says, “I have called you by your name. You are mine” it means He fully knows who we are, and He claims us as His own.  When he calls you, will you answer.

Sat on a wall, the dictionary defines this phrase as moving from a standing position to sitting. The rhyme does not go into details of what he was doing up there while he was sitting. We just know he sat. However, using my imagination, I see him surveying the land, people, or just taking a break. Now while he was up their taking a break, his eyes got heavy, and he fell asleep. And instead of lying with his back against the wall with some kind of safety net, he laid back he fell. A few spiritual questions arise in my head friends: When you need a leaning post, who are you leaning on? Who can hold us up with one hand and wipe away our tears with the other one? When we take a sit, do so on the hopes and promises of Jesus Christ.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, have you ever had a great fall friend? I have. I called myself just doing things my way. That was the wrong attitude right from the start. I’ve made mistakes, plenty of miss-takes, I have had my share of bumps and bruises. See I was Looking up from inside the dark holes, there were chains about my ankles. Depression and anxiety held me captive, but there was King Jesus full of wisdom and mercy as he reached down in my dark whole and lifted me. He touched me. Yes, he brought back the sun among those dark clouds. Amen.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men, by virtue of Who He is as Creator of all things, God is the sovereign Ruler of the universe. Everything is under his command. He has all power and all authority, and He entrusts roles for his purpose. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again, this is where we get down to the nitty gritty friends, what was missing in their attempt to put him back together was the source. When we are broken, the word describes the Lord as a potter, and we are the clay, we are the work of His hands. He has the power to put us back together again. Piece by piece. We as the clay pot must pass through the fire, for the hotter the furnace the finer the vessel. God sees us as not just marred clay, but fine porcelain. Even in our brokenness, Jesus Christ our potter can put us back together again. Amen!

Remember friends, we are each other’s keeper and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
