“He Heals the Brokenhearted”

broken hearted

Psalm 147:3-5 (TLB)

“He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great he is! His power is absolute! His understanding is unlimited.”

I love these verses and I love thinking about how God knows all the specifics about everything.  He knows everything about everything that He created.  He created you and the stars and there is no limit to what He knows!  This is a powerful thought isn’t it?

Before this verse that causes us to ponder His greatness is the verse that says that He heals the broken in heart.  This time of the year always causes me to think about people that do not look forward to celebrating the holidays.  This can be an extremely painful time for people.   I would dare to say that there is more depression in people this time of year than none other.  For many, the holidays is simply a painful reminder of the past that they can only revisit in the precious, silent memories of their heart.   I lost both of my parents very close to Christmas and also my very special Grandmother.  I embrace the precious hope of seeing them again someday because I know they are in Heaven.

Today I want to encourage those of you that He that has given every single star a name knows and understands the pain of your heart.  Whether it be that you have lost a loved one to death, divorce or there is broken fellowship with someone special to you, He is able to bring you comfort.  He is able to come close to you and touch your heart and bring His touch of healing to it.  Our Lord is great. Nothing is impossible with His overwhelming power. He is loving, compassionate, and wise beyond all measure.  God bless you.
