Wounds must heal from the inside out. Inside Jesus we find that healing.
A friend shared lies her mom had spoken over her from childhood. Mean, nasty, life-altering lies that had kept my friend in bondage most of her life. And as she was sharing, another friend, said, “The pain is too much.”
Your pain may be too much for a human to carry. That’s why we have Jesus. That’s why He came, and that’s why He’s here for you. That’s why He wants to heal your hurt. Because He is the one who made your heart and with His love He can restore and remake anything and anyone.
Regardless of how deep the past, regardless of how painful what happened, or what even may be happening now. Regardless of the lies, regardless of the half-truths spoken over you, Jesus is The Truth – the whole truth.
The pain is too much – that’s why Jesus went to the cross.
The pain is too much – that’s why He carries your burden.
The pain is too much – that’s why He heals the broken-hearted and binds their wounds.
The pain is too much – that’s why He captures every precious tear you cry and He will wipe every tear from your eyes.
The pain is too much – that’s why He gives you power to overcome by His blood and the word of your testimony.
The pain is too much – that’s why He loves you enough to carry you, that’s why He will take everything you have gone through, every painful moment, and will turn it to good. And that’s why He won’t ever leave you or forsake you.
The pain is too much – that’s why He came to earth, that’s why He died for you, that’s why He conquered death and rose again, that’s why He offers eternal hope, and that’s why He is here, right now, holding you close.
The pain is too much – that’s why He is the healer, restorer, and redeemer. That’s why we have Jesus.
The pain of sin (ours and others) is too much, yet because of the sacrifice, mercy, and grace of Jesus we are given new life. His grace. His forgiveness is the key to eternal life and the key to our healing.
Wounds must heal from the inside out, and inside Jesus you find your healing.
