John 14:26-27 (AMPC)26 But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. 27 Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]
Life is not fair but God is just. God doesn’t want us to be hurt and live hurt. God wants to help us through our hurt and to go on and help other people. We can receive healing and not live in hurt our entire lives. When we begin to heal then we can help others who also hurt.
We cannot determine our worth and value because of our situation and how our situation may impact the way people think about us. People can say stinky things. We are valuable because we are created by God and God loves us not because of what others think of us. Words of others can set us back when we are trying to heal in a situation. It is up to us to set our mind and heart to not allow the words of others set us back or derail us from healing and moving forward in life.
We must renew our mind to a different way of thinking about our hurt. We cannot believe the lies in our mind the devil puts there about things never getting better. Renewing our mind is work and takes some effort. When we have been wounded in our soul we must believe that God can work anything out for our good.
How can we renew our mind when we are wallowing in hurt? We study the word and pray. We do it daily and often. Once a week is helpful but daily will help to put our feet grounded on the path of healing. Each day we might take a wrong step which is why it is important to go to God daily and ask Him to continually re-order our steps so we continue to stay on the path of healing and spiritual growth.
When we start to fall off our path into the pit of weariness, God will grasp our hand and pull us out of despair and keep us standing. When we feel we have no strength to stand, God will uphold us.
Psalm 37:23-24 (AMPC) 23 The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. 24 Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.
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
