3030 Challenge: Day 16


If you’ve been hurt in the past, then you don’t have to spend your life being miserable, angry, bitter, resentful, or full of self-pity. And you don't have to hurt others.

Isaiah 61:1-3

In the Bible, we see over and over that God is a God of healing and restoration. Isaiah 61 clearly shows us that He longs to help people who are hurting. The world is full of wounded, heartbroken people, who have been mistreated or abused in some way. And they’re pretending to be okay, desperately hoping other people will think they’ve got it all together.

The truth is, none of us are perfect, and we all go through hard times and get hurt by someone or something. It’s important to understand that hurting people hurt people. And many times when people abuse others, they are acting out of their own pain.

The good news is if you’ve been hurt in the past, you don’t have to spend your life being miserable, angry, bitter, resentful or full of self-pity, hurting others. Through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and by studying God’s Word regularly, you can receive complete healing in your soul—your mind, will and emotions. God can restore your life and make you whole!

It will take time, diligence in studying the Word, and lots of prayer to walk out the healing that is yours through your relationship with Christ. Just remember that in Christ, you can overcome sin and access the power of God so you can experience the promises in His Word.

And the promises of God belong to anyone who is born again!

Walk It Out

Consider any areas of your life in which you need healing and restoration. Then study Isaiah 61 and Luke 4 to get a greater understanding of the healing power that’s available to us in Christ.
