Your heart condition is important. Heart checks help us become aware of potentially fatal issues hidden from our view — heart problems.
Just as physical heart checks are essential, spiritual checks on your soul condition are vital. Many times, things are going on inside us robbing us of the fullness of life Jesus intended.
Hurt is one of the hidden issues in the hearts of many. Over time and through various painful experiences, hurts can accumulate in our soul. When these get inside you, they poison your thinking, damage your emotions, and get in the way of good relationships.
Walking through life without some pain is impossible. We’re hurt by people along the way. Everybody experiences emotional pain. It’s not the hurt that destroys you, it’s what you do with it. Far too many allow their pain to become their identity. It becomes the focus of their lives. They refuse to face it, work on it, deal with it, or seek to overcome it. It lays in their soul generating toxicity through all their life actions and systems.
A hurting heart is curable! God comes near to those who are in soul pain. Take a look at this assurance in Psalm 34:18 (NIV) “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Are you carrying the heavy weight of pain in your soul? Is your heart hurting? God is with you. He’s close. He’s nearby, ready to bring healing. Let Him in and give your hurt to Him. He’s the heart healer!
