When you are going through challenges and experiencing crises moments, you might feel like God does not care about the deep pains and hurts that you have internalized in your soul.  Now it has become a part of you, that has made you build a defense wall around you to hinder people from developing relationships with you.  It is time for a change, it is time to keep it real in the presence of God because He care so much about you.  He wants to know how you are doing today, who offended you at work and why you are so angry that you are unwilling to forgive and let go .

Keep it real for God to heal your broken heart. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3). When you are wounded or hurt and you let go in complete transparency, He initiates the healing process for He is the Restorer of your soul.  During the healing process He removes every obstruction that the physical eyes cannot see in the wound that slows down the process,  Once its complete He bandages up the wound.  

Keeping it real in the presence of God is important for us to develop a deeper level of intimacy with the Lord.  He wants to know what you are going through, where it hurts and the pains that you have numbed in your heart in pretense that everything is okay.  When you are broken, crushed, bitter about life challenges, the ups and downs of life.  Maybe offended by the way you are treated by your close friend, business partner or confidant. Speak to Abba Father, pour it out to Him, open up the wounds of bitterness, unforgiveness, offence, grudges so He can bind the wounds and make your heart whole again.  Get into a one to one, me to You, Daughter to Father conversation in the secret place. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. (Psalm 34:18)

Perhaps you are wondering where to start because there are a lot of junks, toxic wastes stored up in your heart and you think it is too much for Almighty God to handle.  I have good news for you, His yoke is easy and His burdens are light (Matthew 11:28-30).  He has been waiting for so long to hear your voice.  If you sow in tears, you will reap in joy, if surrender in fear you will experience the abundance of His faithfulness.  Nothing is too difficult for God to handle, He is not the Author of confusion but the Author and Finisher of your faith.  Start today not tomorrow by entering into His presence, enter God’s rest and open up your heart to Him.  No more STOP SIGNS placed at the entrance to your heart.

Be encouraged to comment on the challenges you experience of keeping it real in the presence of God and be an inspiration to someone out there who needs encouragement or feels like they are all alone on this journey.

 

You might be feeling discouraged, downhearted, broken and distraught or even suicidal.  Maybe you think there is no God and have disconnected from Him, this has brought you to  a place of frustration, restlessness, hopelessness and depression.  You know what,  all hope is not lost so do not give up on God because Jesus heals the broken hearted and sets the captives free.  There is healing in the name and blood of the Lamb.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds Psalm 147:3.

So who is Jesus Christ? Do you really know Him? Because I thought I knew Him perfectly well but everyday I still get to know more about His awesomeness, the power in His name and anointing. Everyday is a new day of submission to my Lord and Savior Jesus learning who He truly is. Also how to walk and work with Him,  until you fully know and understand His true Identity and character of Jesus Christ and He gives you a divine revelatory knowledge of Him as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the Holy Trinity, it absolutely impossible to comprehend and embrace that Jesus heals the broken hearted.

WHO IS JESUS  

Son of God Jesus Christ came down in human form to suffer the pains and sufferings for our sake.  Heavenly Father sent His beloved Son because of the great love He has for us that those who believe in Him will not perish but have everlasting life ( John 3:16).

Redeemer: Jesus paid a costly price for our sake that He might redeem us through the power of the blood of the Lamb that was slain.  He was wounded for our transgression, chastised for our sins and by every stripes He took on the cross we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). On His crucifixion death, sicknesses and diseases, all our pains and sufferings was nailed to the cross and on the third day when He resurrected a   Divine Exchange took place to transform lives and restore back our with relationship God through His Son Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit.  As redeemers sickness has no root in our bodies, broken lives are made whole, burdens are taken off our shoulders.
Healer: He is Jehovah Rapha, our Healer and restorer of our soul.  He mends the pieces and binds up our wounds because He is the potter and we are His clay.  If your have been broken, crushed and wounded why don’t you go to the Master Healer, Jesus as He heals your broken hearted
Lover of your soul: He takes us at the apple of His eyes (Zechariah 2:8).  We are precious, honored and loved in His sight (Isaiah 43:4).  He loves to know your thoughts, emotions and every action you take.  So He can direct our footsteps, renew our minds and give us a soft heart (Proverbs 16:9, Ezekiel 11:19, Romans 12:1-2).
He is God, the first and last: When you start with Him, endeavour to see the end of the matter with Him.  Because the end of the matter is better than the beginning.  Behind the scenes He is working it all out for your good because He is God (Hebrews 12:2, Revelation 1:17).
Provider: He is your provider, Jehovah Jireh (Genesis 22:8).  All your needs have been provided for by your Heavenly Father through Christ Jesus.  And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus Philippians 4;19. You need to develop the ability to trust Him in the midst of all the challenges, trials and tribulation you are experiencing (Proverbs 3:5-6).  Despite it all nothing shall separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:34-35).

There is so much to write about but I would like you to pause and think about Christ love for you, that surpasses all understanding.  Take time out to reflect on the things you are grateful to God for and appreciate Him for who He is.

HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR HEALING

1. Surrender: Complete surrender at the foot of the cross, nailing every pains, hurts, brokenness on the cross where Jesus was crucified.  Keep it real with Jesus, expressing your thoughts, feelings remaining in submission to Him.  When you surrender all to Him, you decrease that He may take full possession of your live with the full awareness that its not all about you but all about Him Jesus.  Surrender is an act of worship and reverencing God the author and finisher of your faith

2.  Let it go:  This is the difficult part because sometimes it is difficult to let go of those pains, brokenness caused by those that offended, betrayed, denied, disgraced you.  With Jesus by your side, He will make it easy because He knows what it feels like when He came in human form down to this earth .  Ask Him to teach you how to forgive your offenders, forgive yourself for the guilt and pains you have felt.  Do not carry the burden anymore, lay it the foot of the cross for His yoke is easy and His burdens are light.

3.  Receive healing: When you let go of it all then He starts to work through you in unity with the Holy Spirit that pours His love in you.  You give Him all your burdens, pains, hurts and receive His overflowing love, empowerment to walk in the fullness and righteousness of Christ

4.  Remain in Him: Once you have received your healing, do not go back to your old ways.   Remain in His love and your joy would be complete.  Remain in His word, maturing to be more Christlike.  Spend time in His presence seeking Him wholeheartedly. Your life becomes a living testimony for His name to be glorified in you.

Jesus heals the broken hearted and set the captives free.  It is a journey process that continues as He keeps molding, remolding until your are perfect in Him.  I pray that you would receive your complete healing in Him through Christ Jesus that was crucified on the cross, in the blood of the Lamb that was slain.  May He pour His spirit into your hearts and fill up every emptiness till it overflows in Jesus name. Amen

Forgive

Father in heaven, we thank You  for Your Son Jesus Christ who was crucified on the cross of Calvary.  We thank You for Your blood that washes away my  sins, purifies my heart and cleanses me from all unrighteousness.  I confess that I am sinner and have  sinned against You,  Father I humble myself before you and surrender my life, all that I am to You.  Forgive me of  all my sins, both the sins of commission and omission.  Teach me how to forgive those that have mocked, persecuted, humiliated and offended me consistently and that have caused me to shut down and placed a stumbling block to my relationship with You.  So that my prayers might be answered as the Word of God says if I have anything against anyone forgive, let go of the issue so that Your Father in Heaven may forgive you.  In Jesus Name Amen.

And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” Mark 11:25-26 NKJV

Amen

  

 Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. 5    But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole Isaiah 53:4-5 amp

Building trust is essential in every relationship especially marriages.  You might have been hurt in the past and such relationships might have failed you several times that you held back to avoid anymore triggers.  Trust is a key part in every relationship, your employers must trust you to employ you or  your must show some reasonable position of reliability to be employable.  Friendships require trust to build healthy relationships.  Sometimes you trust someone then they stab you in the back consequently  anger,disappointments and so on creeps in gradually.  When this happens run to God and take refuge in Him.  You know what, your sole trust should be in God.  He is perfect and complete, there are no flaws in Him.  On the other side human beings are imperfect with their weaknesses and flaws.  Your refuge or place of safety should be in the Lord.  Trust God more than man and He will never forsake or fail you.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans Psalm 118:8 NIV.  

To trust God means to having complete dependence, reliance and support in Him.  It is your ability to cling to, lean on at all times and have total confidence in Him that He will see you through every problems or challenges you experience.  Trusting God to me means my wholes being (spirit, body and soul) clings to Him, even when I don’t understand what’s going on, I still lean on His own understanding and permit Him to direct my path.

My trust is fastened to God as I lift my life to Him.  And I am certain I will not be put to shame because I trust in You.  O Lord, I give my life to you.      I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced,   or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat Psalm 25:1-2.   As I let go, He takes control.  Though it may seem like I am forgotten, though it may look like I have been left behind in this race, I know certainly that He never forgets those who put their trust in Him and keeps me in perfect peace because my eyes are fixed on Him (Nahum 1:7, Isaiah 26:3-4)

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You! 4 Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the eternal Rock Isaiah 26:3-4 NLT.

Prayer

Father I thank You for today and what You have done in the past.  I pray for those who are loosing faith and trust in God at this hour, time and season that You would strengthen and give them perfect peace that surpasses all understanding.  Their eyes would be fixed on You and You alone, I pray oh Lord that they will shift their focus from the situation and trust You more because with You all things are possible.  I declare that with You all things are possible so Lord have Your way in their lives and take control in Jesus name.  Heal their hearts of every pains, bitterness and unforgiveness that they have experienced as a result of broken relationships.  You heal the broken hearted and set the captives free so where the spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty.  I declare liberty in every area of their lives and fulfillment of Your will and purpose that whatever they have asked You in Your name according to Your will they will receive it in JESUS MIGHTY NAME I PRAY and everyone says AMEN.
