There are people, events, situations and circumstances that are bound to challenge your existence. Hopefully they will not mirror the Job experience. But they will affect you mentally, physically, emotionally and/or spiritually. When you grieve, mourn, or experience pain and despair there is a corresponding cry of the soul. Even if you try to hide it or pretend it doesn’t exist, it is there. The good news is God hears every cry of the soul. He created us to communicate that cry to Him alone. That’s why it seems as though no one can fully understand what you’re going through. Or you may wonder why nothing or no one can effectively resolve your situation. Turning to God is the solution and remedy for every cry of the soul. He interprets, understands and He heals. Why shouldn’t He? He is the Creator and He knows you very, very well… before you were born… every hair on your head. Some people are nay-sayers because they choose to doubt there is a God or they lack faith in Him. But Abba is the Father on every spiritual birth certificate. His signature is all over existence.
One of the keys to achieving healing, wholeness and well-being is to acknowledge that you don’t like what you’re experiencing. When you acknowledge your feelings it’s easier to receive help. Then the next step is to yield to God’s help. Through faith in God, prayer, praise and the scriptures, you will be able to make necessary transitions from the effects of any crisis, affliction, tragedy or trial. When you study the scriptures you will begin to understand who He can be in your life. You will discover who you are in Christ Jesus. Peace, restoration, healing, wholeness, and well-being becomes accessible to you.
My goal is to simply point you to the truth, which is the eternal word of God, the scriptures. My late pastor, Dr. Robbie Horton told me one day that “some things are caught–beyond seeing, hearing or being in the midst of that something. When you recognize your need for what is presented, and you’re determined to receive or embrace it, then you will allow it to process and change you.”
Whatever state you’re in for whatever reason(s), prayer and the scriptures are a source of comfort, healing, guidance and direction. Through a personal relationship with God and praying the scriptures, you have the keys and access to emotional, physical and spiritual-well being and wholeness.
