But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds”, declares the Lord,” Because you are called an outcast, Zion, for whom no one cares”.
No one can see what is going on in our mind, and we often hide how we really feel inside. Our emotional pain may not be visible, but it is felt deeply.
You may sometimes feel as though you do not fit in because many of your friends are married and have children and you are single and do not have children. You may not be a part of the popular crowd at work, or you may feel alone if you are different, or hold different values, or opinions to others. But you are not alone in how you feel, I believe we have all experienced different forms of hurt in our lives. We may be walking and getting on with our lives, but we are wounded.
There is a saying that I remember hearing when I was a child, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.” I do not believe that is true. Words do hurt.
Unkind words spoken in childhood, in educational institutions, in employment, or in relationships still ring in our ears and hurt our heart. But the Lord is declaring today, that He cares about YOU, and the wounds that have been inflicted on you, and He will restore your emotional health and provide healing. Pray his word of promise over each painful part of your life each day and believe that He will restore you day by day. Keep repeating and holding on to His promise, “I will restore you to health and heal your wounds”, declares the Lord.”
