Healing is a journey and process

Isaiah 61:1 (AMPC) 61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,

When we are broken hearted, we are broken on the inside. It can also break our personality when we are broken on the inside. When we are broken on the inside it can also damage things on the outside- like relationships with people. The good news is Jesus came to heal our brokenness – on the inside and the outside.

We do not have to be a prisoner to our brokenness and let it control our actions, our relationships, or our future. Healing is a journey and process. If you have a physical ailment you just do not get well all of the sudden. You go to the doctor, the doctor tells you what you need to do to get better and you do it. The same goes for our spirit. We have to go to the Word of God, and follow His word and direction in order to heal our broken spirit.

We can be saved and still live life in a broken state of mind and spirit. Aren’t you tired of being bitter and angry about everything that happened to you in your past and everything that seems to happen to you today that seems unfair and unjust?

It is time to heal, press forward and live life with victory. In order to do that we have to get over unfairness, ask God to help to be aggressive in faith, pray for God to heal us and ask Him to show us what we need to do to heal. God has his part to help us heal, but we also have to do what we need to do to heal as well. God shows us what we need to do and it is up to us to do it.

Isaiah 61:3 (AMPC) To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. 

If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:

Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
