Heart Healing

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- September 30, 2010

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3

Like our physical heart, our emotional heart can suffer from neglect. Without a proper diet of truth and the exercise of forgiveness a wounded heart will eventually break. Was your childhood an emotional wasteland? Have you been emotionally starved, or have you exhausted your emotions on others? If so, you are a candidate for Christ’s healing.

Maybe your parents deeply disappoint you. They are unable to connect at a deeper heart-felt level. This wounds your heart. Maybe a physical aliment or lack of training in social skills has crushed your confidence. Does insecurity dominate your self-image? This hurts your heart. Do you weep at night crying out to God for relief, but heaven is silent? Indeed, a heart burdened with emotional baggage longs for the Lord’s love, grace and healing.

Your heart may be crushed under the weight of unmet expectations. The cumulative affect of multiple wounds to your heart has led to a broken heart. You mask these deep hurts in hyper-activity. You work harder, but your heart needs to be softened by Jesus. A heavy heart yearns for healing to avoid angry outbursts and impatient attitudes. “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (Proverbs 15:1, NKJV).

God is our heart specialist. He has never lost anyone on His surgical table of love. To some degree we are all candidates for a divine coronary bypass of forgiveness and truth. Truth is medicinal. It is one of God’s most potent drugs that He administers to a broken heart. He loves you and has a grace-filled plan for your life. He loves you right where you are—He loves who you are. Believe it and let God begin healing your heart.

The truth is, as a follower of Christ, you are a child of the King. You can be grateful because as a believer you come from the blue blood line of King Jesus. Hold your head high and walk with a bounce in your step because you matter to God. You are extremely valuable to your Heavenly father. Believe it and allow Him to heal your heavy heart.

The truth is, we can forgive those who have deeply wounded us because Christ has forgiven us. We have the capacity to forgive dwelling within us in the person of the Holy Spirit. “The spirit is willing, but the body is weak” (Mark 14:38). So, we forgive especially when we don’t have the energy to emotionally engage. We trust Him to heal.

The truth is, you can seek first the Kingdom of God but you do not have to clamor after the approval of people. Believe it, apply it, and let God begin healing your heart. He is your heart specialist. Invite Him to perform heart surgery today with the scalpels of truth and forgiveness. “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32).

What areas of my heart need the healing touch of my Heavenly father?
