Healer of our Broken Hearts

Inspirational Thought of the Day:

Jesus came to free us from the burden of sin and to heal us from the effect of it, as well.

Scriptures of the Day:

Isaiah 53:4-5

“Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. 5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

Psalm 147:3

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

Psalm 41:2-3

“The LORD will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes. 3 The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.”

Psalm 30:2

“O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”

Life hurts sometimes. In our most painful moments we can hurt emotionally and physically and wonder if God sees. Broken, we come before our God and King Who is a Master at fixing broken people. He made us and knows more than anyone what we need to be whole again – Himself.

Healing is needed for many reasons. Some need God to touch them spiritually, some need help emotionally and others need a physical healing. In all of these, God sovereignly uses our infirmity for good, even though it might seem pointless at the time.

I know well what it means to be sick, diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases.  I also know what it is to be healed and what it is to not be.  In all these occasions, I praise His Name.  He is my Jehovah Rapha, (The Lord our Healer).  He heals our hearts from emotional pain, our bodies from physical pain, whether it be on this earth or ultimately in Heaven, and our souls from the pain of sin.

Healing is sometimes a difficult subject to discuss.  Some Christians believe that God always heals, some believe He does not.  Either way, all who are in Christ are healed spiritually for eternity, which is the most significant healing there could ever be.

We are all destined to perish on this earth, and sickness is often one of the vessels which might bring us to eternal bliss with our Creator.  Our bodies were not designed to live forever and our limit is 120 years.  This is not Heaven.  We cannot avoid the fact that we all have an end, but the sting has been removed!  Praise His Holy Name!

Sometimes the most difficult thing to heal is our broken hearts.  The effects of sin are profound and can leave one limping through life, but Jesus came to not only take away the burden of sin, but the effects of it, as well.  The scar of sin may long be remembered, but its crippling effect can be changed into a divine tool of healing instead.  That’s our gift this Christmas and for all of life – Christ our Healer.

Lord, thank You for healing us and for the hope of a complete healing in Heaven with You.  Help us to be content and worship You in whatever thorn you have permitted into our lives, knowing full well that our future hope with You is to be completely restored!

  1. Hi Denise, I just want to say that I’m so glad I listened to your song on Facebook. It touched me so much & was exactly what I needed to hear. Then we became friends on Facebook & our messages back & forth to one another have made me grateful that I now have a new Sister in Christ. This bond can never be broken as long as we keep our Lord in His rightful place, the centre of our lives. That’s not always easy to do as sometimes the old ways creep in & take me by surprise. I was in the depths of despair when I called out to the The Lord & He answered me. I came from a very dis functional family. My mother was an Alcoholic & of course that took precedence over me & my siblings. It all became too much for her & so she separated us. Me she sent to an institution, my brother went to his grandmothers, he had a different father to me & my baby sister ended up with my Aunty & Uncle, who beat her & she died in my Auntys arms. She was only three yrs old. I remember being told by the social worker in the institution that she died of the flu, but in my heart I knew that something sinister had happened, anyway I was told the truth by my Aunty just before going to my Mums funeral. Then my life started to spiral out of control. I was gang raped by a Biker group, twice in the same night & then I decided that I was worthless if someone could degrade me like that & then gloat about it. So I started to medicate myself with all sorts of drugs. Heroine was my first love though, it numbed every emotion & that’s what I was looking for, something to fill the void. Many years passed & many horrific things happened after that but what I want to tell everyone & anyone that Jesus heard my cry & not only did He heal my brokenness He showed me that I am worthwhile because I am a daughter of the King of Kings & no one can ever change or take that away from me. I still struggle with life at time but my Abba Father is always there to show me the ere of my ways & how to rise above the sins that so easily entangle me. My God is An Awesome Sod Who Reigns in Heaven & earth & nothing is too big or too small for Him because He loves His children, enough to suffer & die to pay the ransom to buy us back. Thankyou for your devotion Denise, it inspires me to allow God to keep changing me from Glory to Glory until I meet Him face to face. Thanks for your time. Karen Baker

    • Karen, it hurts my heart that you have had to go through so much suffering. I am so very sorry about that. The hardest thing in such suffering is to be able to trust God when men do evil. God loves you so much and He is faithful to heal us when others break our hearts. Thank you for reading. I will pray the LORD continues to heal you so you can comfort many for His glory!
