7 Bible verses to help you find emotional healing and wholeness in Christ

One of the main reasons Jesus came to earth was to bring about the ministry of healing. While much of recorded healing in the gospel was physical, the ultimate goal of Jesus was complete and total healing, not just of the body but also of the spirit that would bring salvation, and of the soul that would bring emotional wholeness.

While the struggle over physical sickness is very real today, so is the struggle over emotional sickness. Many if not all of us are struggling with some level of depression, anxiety, fear or distress that we need to be completely healed from.

The good news of the gospel is not just that we now have healing over our spirits leading to eternal life, but as we are healed spiritually, God also progressively works to give us freedom in every single area of our life. God wants to heal your spirit so that you may enjoy Him for the rest of eternity, but He also wants to heal your emotions so that you may enjoy life here on earth experiencing His joy and peace.

Here are seven scriptures that point to the emotional healing that comes through Jesus Christ.
