All of us are in need of healing. The question is: why? The answer to that question can be located through an understanding of the fall of mankind. When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, something monumental took place, and not in a good way. Not only did a curse come upon the earth as a result of their disobedience, but the curse of being emotionally ruled also affected the soul of man in an unprecedented way—the curse of being emotionally-ruled. From that point on, the mind, will, and emotions of men would be fragmented and broken as a result of their sin nature. Fear and selfishness would now dominate people’s thinking, and they would have the tendency to be ruled by their emotions instead of the Word of God and the Spirit of God. God wants to heal the brokenness of our souls and get us to the point where we are no longer ruled by our feelings. The truth is, the reason we react to hurt, rejection, and pain the way we do is because we are coming from a position of being already broken in our souls. However, when we realize that God has redeemed our emotions and made us whole through our relationship with Jesus Christ, the things that once had the power to hurt us cannot affect us in the same way anymore. A “whole” heart cannot be broken. In order to get to the place where we are whole in our souls, we must first accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and then begin the process of renewing our minds with the Word of God. When God heals your heart, nothing can break it, but reclaiming that position of wholeness in Him means we must be consistent in our pursuit of the Word. Spending time meditating on the reality of God’s healing power, and who we are in Christ, is essential to repairing the broken soul. Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” God’s power, which is His love, is working within us right now! His love is mending our broken hearts and repairing what has been damaged by sin. As our thoughts become aligned with God’s Word, His highest and best will begin to take shape in our lives. We must know we are unconditionally loved by God in order to truly become whole again. The blood of Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice, which brought the mind, will, and emotions back into fellowship with the Father. There is nothing we can do that will separate us from His love. Our part is to be completely transparent with God about our issues rather than to try and mask them. We must also recognize that God’s grace and mercy are on hand to carry us through the personal challenges we experience in our souls. Nothing is too hard for Him. Sin and brokenness has already been overcome. Our job is to hide in Christ to receive the freedom, deliverance, and healing that has been made available to us. I encourage you to examine your heart for any areas that may be wounded and broken. Bring those things to God, and receive the full benefits of salvation, which include healing of the soul.
