Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/23/15

This week’s scripture is from Isaiah:

Jesus Christ 4“Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering … and by his wounds we are healed.”  (Isaiah 53:4,5)

We know the Lord heals, for when we get sick or injured, we generally get well, and at times the Lord does miraculous healings when illness or injuries that should be fatal or terminal are dramatically turned back and the person afflicted lives or is restored to health. Yet it is not just our physical bodies that the Lord heals, for the Lord is concerned with more than our physical well-being. The Lord also heals our soul. He heals the brokenhearted; He heals us emotionally and mentally from wounds and trauma that life has inflicted upon us. He heals our suffering. If we will bring our brokenness before Him, the Lord is faithful to heal us in the way we most need to be healed, for all are broken and all need His healing touch.

May the Lord bless you with healing, body and soul.
