When you feel too broken for God to fix you

In life, we spend so much on repairing broken things -- broken cars, broken plumbing, broken gadgets and many other material things. However, there are some things on this earth that cannot be restored by human hands nor can be painted off with a few hundred dollars in repairs.

A broken marriage, a broken morale or a broken spirit -- these things are beyond human repair and can only be restored by the loving kindness of the Savior.

So if God can heal my broken heart, why hasn't he done it yet? And if he hasn't healed me yet, what is my assurance that God wants me to be healed?

The first question can only be answered through time and through faith, believing that God will restore at the proper time with the proper means and that He is able to do so. Our assurance that God will heal is found in the Bible. Here are three simple truths that the Bible reveals about God and your inevitable healing revival.

God wants to heal you

It is God's desire to heal His people, and He will heal those who put their trust in Him in due time. The loving nature of God cannot keep Him from bringing forth healing to the heart and to the soul. Psalm 147:3 says "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."

The only question is are we allowing God's love to enter our hearts and do a mighty work in us? Do you want to get healed? This was the same question Jesus asked the leper in John 5:6 and it's the same question he asks us today.

God is near

When we are hurt, it often feels like God is not by our side, but the scripture assures that God is there most especially when we are hurt. Psalm 34:18 tells us "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." When our hearts are breaking and all hope seems lost, that moment, God is by your side and bringing comfort, rest and restoration in a way that you have never experienced before.

God paid for your restoration

What is our greatest assurance that God will heal us? It's not because we've worked for it, but because Jesus has already paid the ultimate price for your full healing and restoration. Our assurance of healing is not our works, not our situation, but it is rather the cross that brings assurance of our healing. 1 Peter 2:24 says "He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed."
