Sometimes life deals you a curveball. You get blindsided by a crisis, health issue, or even the loss of someone close. This can have a devastating effect on you and can lead to a pain that doesn’t go away. Jesus offers healing for the brokenhearted. He can take that heart, which is grieving and make it whole again.
The Spirit of the Lord God is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners;”
Bring the Good News
Chapter 61 is another of the Messianic prophecies. It talks about how Jesus going to bring the Gospel while at the same time minister to the brokenhearted, captives, and prisoners. A short reading of the Gospels tells us that this came true. He preached the good news that God had sent him. At the same time, he did heal the brokenhearted. I think of the mother who was burying her son, and Jesus came upon the funeral procession and raised him from the dead. There was also the demon-possessed man whom Jesus cast out a legion of demons and sent them into pigs.
Jesus is still healing people and setting them free. People all over the world are finding new life through the Gospel. When they discover that the redemptive power of the Cross can change their life, they are changed. The freedom that comes from their sins being forgiven and the new life that is breathed into them is revolutionary. Jesus can do that in every person’s life.
Healing the Brokenhearted
Healing for the brokenhearted happens through the power of the Holy Spirit. When we receive Jesus as our savior, we are filled with the Spirit, and He is there to guide us in our faith and grow fruit in our life. He is also capable of bringing deliverance for those who need it. If you are struggling with the pain of a broken heart or need deliverance, he can do it. Don’t suffer in silence. Seek help today.
