The Emergency Room for your Heart
When life has run you over and you are critically wounded, where is the emergency room for your heart? A person can’t go to the hospital for a broken heart, for a destroyed life or emotional pain that throbs without ceasing. There is no modern medical facility for any of these types of sufferings. Some may even say that they hurt more than physical pain.
But there IS a place where your heart can receive emergency care and treatment. The recovery rate is better than any medical treatment available—it’s 200%- you not only are healed but you are a BETTER more IMPROVED person you have ever been.
And you don’t need to travel anywhere to get healed, wherever you are, you can be treated on the spot. Some people worry that they don’t have health insurance and they can’t afford the cost—but it’ s FREE. Can you even THINK of a better deal than that? I sure can’t. Oh, and any follow up treatments or counseling is offered for your life-time and at no monetary cost.
How could this be so good? Well, it’s Jesus. He is our Healer, Redeemer, Counselor, Father and Friend. Just think about the names Jesus was given upon His birth…Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
I don’t know about you, but those names are all names of a person that I want to be cared for by. God has designed every inch of us, and knows ALL things about us. What a comfort that is! Deep down, I think that is one of the most desperate questions we have, “do you really know me?” and that is immediately followed by “do you love me, even knowing all that you know?”
Look at the healing and loving words God has for those who hearts are in critical condition.
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Luke 5:31 And Jesus answered and said to them, "It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick.”
(PS: If you are alive right now, you need to be healed from SOME wound that Satan has attempted to destroy you with. It’s not a question of DO you need healing, but a question of CAN you admit you NEED the healing that only Jesus Christ offers?).
Matthew 8:16 When evening came, they brought to him many possessed with demons. He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick;
Psalm 34:18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Now you know where to take your heart when you need emergency treatment, no ambulance required, no waiting room to cause you more anguish, just get down on your knees and call upon your Father. He is there, He knows you are reading this blog right now. I just LOVE that! Don’t you?!
I’m praying for healing for your hearts, the peace of God that transcends understanding, and for God’s love to fill our cup so much that it overflows!
Your sister in Christ,
