I have a lot on my mind today and as much as I would love to share it with you we have a family day planned. One of the topics that has been on my heart and God has been so faithful in is healing. He has healed my wounds, my hurts, my heartache, and the ones yet to come he will heal.
I have shared of some of the trials I have placed in my life. There are some still tucked away in the corners of my my heart that God has healed me from-but I am not ready to share. One day.
If you are hurting today know that you can rest your hearts in the hands of Jesus. He hurt like no other and he can relate to how you feel. God has plans unimaginable for our eyes to see. We may never see them on this side. We can trust God to carry us those and wipe away our tears.
I read the Jesus Calling but I I read the kids version. I love the way it is written and I want to leave you with today’s devotion.
The One Who Heals
He forgives all my sins and heals my diseases. -Psalm 103:3 (nlt)
I am God who heals. I heal hurt bodies, troubled minds, aching hearts, messed-up lives, and difficult relationships.
When you come into My Presence, healing begins. Whether you ask for it or not. My spirit goes to work in your life. But when you come to Me in prayer and ask for My healing, amazing things can happen. Remember that I am a God who can do awesome things! Nothing is too difficult for me.
I don’t heal all the hurts and troubles in a person’s life. Why? Because it is those very problems that keep you close to Me. They are the things that help you grow-teaching you to depend on Me more and more. Even my servant Paul was told, “My grace is enough for you,” when he asked to be healed.
While I may not take away every hurt, I will always give you what you need to live joyfully-in spite of the hurts. Just ask.
