On healing of the heart


Things we say every day cannot only impact people in a positive or a negative way, it also tells the world about us. Have you ever heard someone just blow up, spew ugly words, and get happy? No, normally, we would ask ourselves whether that person was having a bad day. Truth of the matter is that there are things in our hearts that need to be healed. God sees the heart, not the outer appearance. In the book of 1 Samuel, Chapter 16, God sent Samuel to anoint David to be the next king. In verse 7 God told Samuel: “Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; é for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

The heart is symbolic of the spirit of man. Different things affect us in different ways. We become happy, when good things happen, but difficult situations sometimes leave a hurt in our spirit that must be resolved or it will manifest by the way we speak and act toward others. A person that is told they will never amount to anything will never amount to anything. A person that is told they can do anything if they try very hard will usually accomplish a lot. How do we resolve these issues? We can either do it ourselves or let God take care of the situation.

Hebrews 4:16 says: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” In Matthew 11:28 God tells us: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” We do not have to carry all these situations in our heart. God is inviting us to come unto Him if we are carrying a heavy load in our hearts. He is there to help us and give us rest. We can come boldly unto Him and tell Him the situation. Many times we can’t talk to others but we can talk to Jesus and as we talk to Him, He will show us what to do about the situation. We can lay our problems at His feet and walk away a free and joyful person. Jesus not only came to save us from sin, He came to bear our grief and carry our sorrows so that we could live a blessed life. Why should we carry the load when Jesus already did?
