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
