Has rejection, betrayal, abuse, trauma, loss, or sin wounded you? Has something happened that has cut you to your core? Are these wounds still fresh and open? These painful spiritual and physical events such leave our souls longing for comfort, peace, and wholeness.
Often, we seek the peace and comfort in things like food, sex, drugs, and alcohol, but these type wounds are spiritual and can only be healed by God and His word.
No matter how it happened or who did it, it was set up by Satan to destroy you. He wants to ruin God's plan for your life and prevent you from receiving God’s best and fulfilling your kingdom purpose. God is ready to take your brokenness and heal your hopeless heart.
Scripture says that Jesus wept. Think about that for a minute. The Lord of heaven and earth wept for humanity. It is not hard to imagine being that He became the Sacrificial Lamb to redeem humanity back to the Father.
We’ve all had our heart broken in some way. In this world, we'll have trouble. We'll have heartbreak. My heart has been broken more times than I can count. I’ve cried so many tears that it seemed as if I’d used them all up, so I can relate to what you are going through, but one thing I’ve learned to do is take it to the Lord in prayer.
Beloved, I’m so sorry for the pain that you endure. I really am. I care because God cares. He hurts with you. Psalm 34:18 says, “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Unlike physical injuries, emotional wounds will not close on their own. Jesus came to heal our brokenness. Brokenness from the Father and the brokenness we endure because of the fallen world we live in. He declared, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18–19).
God cares about how you feel, so much so that He sent Jesus to heal broken hearts. Every broken piece of your heart is an opportunity for His healing touch. He came to heal the brokenhearted. You will be whole again. "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds" (Psalm 147:3). It may take some time, but God will walk with you through it all. You're not alone! He's there to hold your hand and heal you: body, soul, and spirit.
What a wonderful opportunity you have before. You can surrender your broken life and receive the forgiveness and healing Jesus offers. He wants to carry your burdens, will you let Him? He says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28, NIV).
Today, if you will:
A prayer you can pray:
Father, God, thank You for caring about the painful details of my life, and for loving me through every hurting situation. You promised to heal the brokenhearted. Thank You for repairing the damage in my heart and make me whole again. Heal my broken heart and mend my wounded soul. Fill me with the peace and joy that can only come from You. I so desperately need You now. I have been struggling to forgive and let go of bitterness and unforgiveness. Help me. Make me whole. I surrender into Your hands all that is hurting in my life. Father, thank You so much for loving me, and for answering my prayers. And as I meet others whose hearts are breaking, give me the courage and help me to offer them Your healing. In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen.
