"By His wounds you have been healed."
Healing takes place on many levels in life: Physical, spiritual and psychological.
Relationships exist on many levels in life: Physical, spiritual and psychological.
There exists you on the outside. The "you" we all see and think we know. The "you" that you allow us to know. We only seem to share parts of who we are with others. At levels deeper within ourselves there are things we do not even admit to ourselves, nevertheless share those things with others. We would be vulnerable to hurt on every level.
God knows all these things and He exists for us on all levels. He knows your thoughts before you even are consciously aware of them. He knows when you are afraid but hiding it from others. He knows when you are lying and trying to cover it up. He knows the deepest desires of your heart and He has taken on the pain of your deepest hurts in life.
Whatever is deep inside of you churning or resurfacing causing pain in your life, it is time to hand it to the Lord.
Words of my heart, Laurie
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”1 Peter 2:24
