Healing is Here

“The Spirit of the Lord God is on me because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners.”

Isaiah 61:1


There was silence on both ends of the phone. I was shocked with no words. I couldn’t believe what I just heard. The words, “We should be friends” destroyed my heart. Those words replayed in my mind. I felt like a prisoner to my emotions. This was another experience of a broken heart, a broken desire, a broken hope and a broken expectation. For my entire life, I have struggled with being emotionally healthy. Especially, when it came to relationships; and this relationship ended with heartache.

The enemy was always whispering to me that I would never be healed of this pain, and I will just have to deal with it. For a while I believed it. I thought that God didn’t want to heal me.

But what the enemy was telling me contradicted what our devotional scripture says. Even though Isaiah the prophet was speaking in this scripture, it was foreshadowing what Jesus will do for humanity. Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted, and bring freedom to the captives and prisoners.

Here are three reminders the Lord showed me:

1) Healing is a Perspective.
How will you choose to see your circumstance? God is big enough to heal you. Because He is a good Father, He wants to heal you. Colossians 3:2 says, “Set your mind on things above, not on the things that are on earth”. This doesn’t mean ignoring what’s happening in your life or it’s saying God doesn’t care about your problems. But what it does mean is to focus more on who Jesus is in the midst of your brokenness and pain. Because we have Jesus, we can speak to something and it has the power to change. Sometimes you must receive healing before you can see it. Pursue Jesus so that He can transform your perspective, and He will give you peace.

2) Healing is a Process.
Ecclesiastes 3: 1 says, “There is an occasion for everything, and a time for every activity under heaven”. A process comes with highs and lows. It is not a linear line. Sometimes healing takes time and that’s okay. God is able to heal right away, but many times He doesn’t. Just because it seems like a delay, doesn’t mean God is late. God’s timing is perfect and we must trust the process. God is always working even in the middle of our deepest pains. Pursue Jesus in the process.

3) Healing is a Promise.
Jesus is faithful, and He always keeps His promises. He came to set us free and to heal us. What Jesus did on the cross freed us. Because Jesus got up from the grave, we are not bound by earthly things. Restoration is our portion. Healing is our portion. Freedom is our portion. Jeremiah 30:17 says, “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord”. Pursue Jesus until you get your promise.

Jesus not only healed my heart and restored me emotionally, but He also began to heal many other things. It was painful, still is, but I had to come to a point where I believed that Jesus could heal me. I continued to press forward with Jesus. You can, too. Believe that healing is here because Jesus is the healer.

Repeat to yourself:
I am free.
I am whole.
I am healed.
I am a child of God.
I am forgiven.
I am not a slave to my emotions or struggles.
I am not what I have done or what have been done to me.

Prayer:

Father, I thank You that you are a healer. Thank you that I am free and healed in You. What Jesus did on the cross made me whole in You. Touch my deepest pain and brokenness and heal me. In Jesus' name. Amen
