“He heals the brokenhearted, And binds up their wounds” ( Psalm 147:3).

Once any of us is injured resulting into a wound God has given the body a delicate process of its own to bring healing. From stopping the bleeding the body isolates the damage against further attack by releasing certain cells that fight off bacteria and eventually clean it out. These compassionate cells then rebuild it with new tissue that leaves often a bold scar. The healing process cannot be rushed for it has its own proved and effective mechanism for a lasting outcome.

While there are physical wounds we also know emotional wounds caused by hurt from sour personal relationships. Even with these wounds God has also left a process of healing. When we are hurt our bodies react either by retaliating with attack to level out the damage or we withdraw to brood, and we know both routes can only deepen the wound. An emotional wound is just as complex as a physical wound.

God desires that all our wounds are healed, whether physical or emotional. ‘For I will restore you to health, And I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the Lord, Because they have called you an outcast, saying: “It is Zion; no one cares for her.” ( Jeremiah 30:17). Also, he says, “He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake” ( Psalm 23:3).

For our wounds to heal God asks us to bring them to him. For he says, “Yet it is I who taught Ephraim to walk, I took them in My arms; But they did not know that I healed them” ( Hosea 11:3). We should not struggle with wounds on our own when the healer is there and has a certain and sure winning way. For as Jeremiah 17:14 says, “Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; Save me and I will be saved, For You are my praise”.

Simply said, whatever might be our wounds, physical or emotional, the best way is to take them to God the creator of life who certainly cares and has the best healing formula.

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, for those wounds which we suffer in life today I bring them to you for you have the best process to bring healing and health to the body, for your glory, all this I pray in Jesus’s name.

    “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful”( 2 Timothy 4:7).

    Fighting may be looked at as a non-desirable way of life, especially by those who are pacifists. In fact, throughout Christian history there are many who have literally taken Jesus’s admonition of “turn the other cheek” in Mathew 5:39, to mean nonresistance in the face of attack. The fact that Jesus rebuked the Apostle Peter for drawing a sword against his captors  ( Mathew 26:52), means giving in to those who attack them, as a sign of humility.

    Yes, of course there are moments where Christians must practice that humility and give in to those who attack them well remembering His word, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay, says the Lord” ( Romans 12:19). However, that said, Believers in Christ would be mistaken to imagine that they must not fight for their faith, whenever under attack. For in reality, the faith of believers is under constant attack from Satan, who comes to “kill and destroy” ( John 10:1).

    Faced with this, Paul went at great length to advise Christians to “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” ( Ephesians 6:11). To ward of constant attacks by the enemy Paul challenged us to “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,  and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” ( vv 14-17).

    Paul is telling us that if you think that ours is a walk over faith where you are not going to fight back against the attacks of the enemy you are very mistaken. Fight we must, and hold our ground. The devil respects that! And when all is done, we can then gladly say, “we have fought the good fight, finished the race” and thank God Almighty we are free at last!

    Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I rise ready to resist the attacks of the enemy, by wearing the full of armor of God, and with the sword of the Spirit, fight back to victory, this I pray in Jesus’ name!
