Have you ever sought help for a desperate need and been told, "Don't worry; just keep the faith and everything will be fine. Confess your sins, and the Lord will take care of everything. If it's real serious, go to a psychiatrist."
Believe me, God is not pleased when His people are given these "band-aids" to cover deep wounds. In fact, in the book of Jeremiah, He severely rebukes His ministers: "They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly, Saying, 'Peace, peace!' When there is no peace" (Jeremiah 6:14, NKJV).
Know that the Lord does not want you going to bed night after night with your wounds "healed slightly." He is doing a new work in His Body - a deep work in which He is cleansing the indescribable inner hurts that nobody sees. This is the day when "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds - curing their pains and their sorrows...they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivers them out of their distresses. He sends forth His Word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction" (Psalm 147:3; 107:19-20, AMP).
This is the work of Jesus - God's living Word! (See also Luke 4:18).
Don't settle for a superficial treatment of your innermost hurts. Starting tonight, the Lord wants to do a penetrating, miraculous work in your life. Cry out to Him and let the Master Surgeon (Jesus) have His way. Not only will you be healed, you will never be the same again!
God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:
Heavenly Father, thank you that You are a God who does not want the wounds of His people healed lightly. See the hidden hurts of my heart and prepare me to receive total healing, cleansing and deliverance. I want to be a clean, pure vessel, perfectly molded for Your use. Thank you for caring so much! In Jesus' Name, Amen.
