The reason God came to earth was to save us, heal us, deliver us.
Most of us aren’t even sure what we need to be saved from, healed of or delivered out of! We might have a good beat on our physical problems, but we have become so accustomed to our dysfunctions that our soul sickness seems normal.
We all have holes in our souls. Here is one way to find out what we need to be healed from: whatever it is that I do that makes me want to hide from God (shames me), those are the areas I need to be healed in.
Those things that we want to hide actually hold the keys to our healing. If we will let those instances turn us toward God and allow the Physician to take up our case, He will prescribe abundant amounts of His love and truth to heal us.
We need His love to drive out fear and let us know we are not alone, no matter how shameful we feel. We need His truth to correct our misbeliefs — the thoughts that are keeping us trapped in a cycle of hurting ourselves and others — so we can think about ourselves the way He does.
The good news is: We don’t have to hide any more! We can come out into His light and love and be healed. God can and will heal us from our sicknesses and sins, no matter how chronic and debilitating they are.
God has come to save me. I will trust in Him and not be afraid. The Lord God is my strength and my song; He has given me victory. (Isaiah 12:2)
