When God puts us back together there’s more than an external picture of being put back together like a broken vase, or the cleansing of red to white. God does an internal working in our heart, soul, and mind that is a healing of sorts as well.
He wants to reach down into the innermost parts of your soul where no one else can go to mend and fill with grace. To rid you of shame, guilt, sorrow, pain, insecurity, and more. These are works only God can do; no human has the ability to fill your void and depths of the heart.
Jeremiah 30:12 says in one breath that our hurt is incurable, and indeed it feels like that sometimes doesn’t it? But then in the next breath, verse 17, God says He will heal and restore. At first glance it appears these two verses contradict each other, however, it’s more of a message about how proper healing takes place.
Proper healing doesn’t come when we bypass the process and seek the world’s comforts. Rather, it comes when we seek God. The difference between healing and not healing lies in the source. You want your heaviness to lift and your soul to feel peace? Then turn to God. Do you desire to feel free from the shame and condemnation? Turn to God. Do you imagine what it feels like to experience wholeness and restoration? Turn to God. He’s the answer to your healing.
When we pursue God we experience grace, restoration, and healing that no past can grip onto. No longer can it hold you back from what God has in store. Tomorrow we look at how purpose prevails.
