We are amazed at how many people have gone through heart tests recently. One friend needed a stint and may need two more. One friend found that her heart is fine, but something else may be going on. Another friend, a teenager, is being tested for generational heart disease. Wow. Even Danny went through heart tests a year or so back. Thankfully his tests came back free and clear. Yet everyone seems to be touched in some way by diseases of the heart.
None of us are immune to issues of the heart. Whether it’s a friend who wronged you or left you high and dry or it’s one of life’s harder situations we all have to deal with it. One crushing blow might not destroy us, but blow after blow weakens the heart and can make us decide to be more careful about who we trust or what we do. Only a touch from God can renew us and give us a strong heart for His Kingdom.
Oh beloved, you’ve been dealing with heart issues haven’t you? Unforgiveness. Rejection. Death. Heartbreak and more…these things cause extreme pain and you’ve been feeling the effects for some time now. The Lord wants to tell you this morning that He is close to the broken hearted & He saves those whose spirits have been crushed. Trying to fix yourself will only result in more cynicism and isolation. Skepticism gives the heart only more problems. You are not the sum of your fears or heartbreaks. You are meant to live fully alive and completely heart healthy. Others may have broken your heart but God will heal it. Hand Him all your brokenness and watch as He heals you from the inside out and sets you free to share His love and tender care with others who come along your way.
God loves you and He’s for you. This is why you can trust Him with all your issues. Run to the Word this morning and let Him apply His healing Word to your every situation. Letting God touch and heal will give you a brand new heart. Thank Him today for His precious gift of healing as you live in the Light of His Glory and Grace.
