There is Healing for Your Broken Heart
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
Are you feeling broken-hearted today? If so, you are not alone.
The human condition is one of heartbreak, because of the sin-broken world we live in and our own predisposition to breaking each other’s hearts. “For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander,” which all add up to heartbreak. (Matthew 15:19).
But the Bible says that God is near to the brokenhearted (Psalms 34:18) and, even better, that Jesus came to release us from the bondage of our own hearts. Here is what is called the good news: “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And [the] opening of the prison to those who are bound;” (Isaiah 61:1) Jesus read these words in a synagogue, saying, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing,” (Luke 4:17-21) meaning, “that’s talking about Me.”
We don’t have to struggle alone in our pain or give in to despair. The Bible tells us that He gave us life and breath so that we would “reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from any one of us,” (Acts 17:27). You aren’t alone in your broken heartedness. Reach out and ask Jesus for His healing today.
