He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Overwhelming scars tend to remind us of the difficult past. Always bringing to remembrance hurtful
situations, previous hardships, or unchangeable circumstances, that possibly placed a deeper scar than
most may realize. Scars can take place on the physical body, but the deepest scars rest upon our
emotional or spiritual side. The past, at times, reflects itself into our future, much like gazing into a
mirror. It seemingly appears that there is no quick fix to the lifestyle chosen. Many of life's scars are
completely out of our control. For example, one might be reared in a negative environment thus paving
the way for inevitable mistakes. Some scars are self-inflicted. Those areas of life that would led to very
strict or uncompromisable results.
Life exists of two roads: one leading toward prosperity; and the other
toward destruction. At the end of every road there stands the consequence of the path chosen. Many
who have chosen the wrong path in life's unbeknownst adventure find themselves overwhelmed at the
previous mistakes, allowing their personal and family lives to fall deeper into hopeless outcomes.
Apparently, giving up on life and the future of any plan of reconstruction toward a brighter day. Within
ourselves, personally, this feat is impossible, but according to the Bible, "with God all things are
possible." (Matthew 19:26)
So many times, we as individuals look at the past events in our lives and
allow it to dictate our destiny. Attention friends...today you must realize that as long as there is breath in
your body hope still exists. God's grace and mercy can pull you from any disastrous situation, heading
down the wrong road, and turn you back down that innocent trail toward victory.
Today, we must
embrace the fact that Jephthah (Judges 11:1-3) was rejected and considered an outcast by his own
family, but, God led Jephthah away from a messy outrage into a goodly place (Tob). Inside of the land
of Tob, Jephthah met other men (verse 3 - vain men = having no success) who had been experiencing
the same ridicule from life in general. Over the process of time, the people who rejected Jephthah
returned unto him for assistance. Remember, during your recent past, people dear to your life may have
given up on you; family, friends, etc... But, always keep in mind, "there is a friend who sticks closer than
a brother." (Proverbs 18:24) God is able to heal any and all situations. Hopefully, on your course to
prosperity God will allow the broken relationships to be healed, as HE did for Jephthah. Keep in mind,
to stay focused on the destiny and on the road to recovery.
The scars of one man, Jesus Christ, was
enough to permanently erase all of your scars whether they be personal, emotional, or spiritually. Isaiah
54:17 "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against
thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD."
YOU CAN MAKE IT!!!
