Healing the broken hearted

Please take time to Rest in His healing grace…

Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

This is Jesus speaking to our heart. He is telling us that He Himself has taken all the hurt, wounding, rejection on the Cross. He did it that we might find healing in His Love. – Love heals.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

This is only possible in Christ Jesus. He is in the Father, and the Father is in us.

Isaiah 53:4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we did esteem Him smitten by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And with His stripes we are healed.

In Christ we are healed.

Psalms 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 

The Bible calls us to meditate on His Word, in this way we find peace where there was once anxiety.

In short, we become as Jesus; one with His Life.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

“Leave the broken, irreversible past in God’s hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him.” ~ Oswald Chambers 

How do you see yourself?

Your self-image determines how you feel about yourself,
which determines how you behave,
which determines the outcome of your actions,
which confirms your self-image.
So, would you like to see yourself in a better light?
Then look in the Mirror of His Word to see who you truly are!

Bearing Fruit

Seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness – berries and fruits everywhere; the result of months of preparation beneath the surface. Nature has dutifully carried out Gods instructions to both provide food for all manner of creatures and to reproduce of its’ kind.

The Bible teaches us to do likewise: to bear the fruit of his Spirit, to love others, to give, serve, bless and forgive. And yet in common with all of nature, we have an enemy that seeks to subvert Gods plan. This enemy is ever working deep beneath the surface of out hearts to bring us into fear, condemnation, hopelessness and offense. He knows that if he can discourage us in God’s plans, he lives to tell another lie!

It’s good to remember that what we put in to the ground of our heart is what we get out. The farmer or gardner knows only too well the necessity of preparing the ground for sowing or planting; and the effort it takes to weed and protect its’ growth. How much more are we to work diligently to apply God’s Word so as to bear fruit with patience.
