No.. I’m not talking about a misplaced object..I’m talking about something that God might be doing. In every season of our lives God is doing things..both in us and around us. One of those things that He is continually doing is healing. He loves to bring healing to His people. For some reason we fail to realize this..causing ourselves to suffer more than we need to. We find ourselves in difficult circumstances and we react to our situation with strong emotions. Often these emotions are over-reactions.. we wonder how we will ever live through this season in our lives.
God is doing something in the midst of this pain. He is showing us that we are not only reacting to the present but also to the past. He is unearthing something that He wants to remove..old pain that sits below the surface of our lives..keeping us from living fully. It is our responsiblity to pray and ask Him for healing.. remember He never forces Himself on anyone. He is the one who can make us whole..removing the knives that are stuck in our hearts…healing the deep wounds.
He takes pleasure in this process because He knows we will be more free..more joyful..more able to live the abundant life. He pursues us..waiting for us to ask Him to reveal what He is doing. I’m sure He grieves as we experience the deep pain that will eventually cause us to cry out to Him. He is patient..never anxious and unrelenting in His love for us. His plan for us includes inner healing.. healing of emotions..healing of our broken hearts. If we seek this..desire it and pray for it.. God will do it.
Looking beneath the surface our lives is a habit we can develop..we can teach ourselves to seek His purposes in every situation.. to realize that He has a reason for everything and nothing is wasted. He will lead us to people, books, movies etc.. all designed to help us understand our journey and bring us into greater freedom.
Remember..He loves you and He wants to bring you out of the darkness into His wonderful light!
“Everyone tried to touch him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone.”
