THE MESSAGE

DONT WASTE YOUR SORROWS : GOD HEALS THE BROKEN HEARTED AND USES THEM TO HEAL THE BROKEN HEARTED

***********************************************************************************************

1. PROXIMITY

The Lord is close to those who are broken hearted and crushed in their spirit. There are many experiences in life that can break our hearts such as disappointments, deaths , hurts , failures ,missed opportunities, loss etc. At such times we may be lonely and feel forsaken by others. But the wonderful promise is that the Lord is close to us at such times . We must realise the close presence of God and allow him him to minister to us and heal our broken hearts.

PSALM 34:18

" The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. "

PSALM 51:17

" The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. "

PSALM 147:3

" He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. "

2. POSSIBILITY

The Lord heals our broken hearts and wants us to minister to others who are going through the same experience in their lives. Whenever we go through an experience of brokenness in our lives , we are in an unique position to be used by the Lord to minister healing and restoration to the broken hearted . The wounds of Jesus ministers healing to our lives . In the same way , we can allow the Lord to use the wounds in our lives to minister healing to others . We must allow the Lord to heal our wounds and then we can use that healing experience to reach out to others and enable them to experience the same healing in their lives. Instead of mourning over our heart breaking experiences , we must see the possibility of using them to become a channel of healing to others.

JOHN 12:24

" I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. "

2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4

" Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,

who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."

I PETER 2:24

" He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. "

3. PITY

The Lord is seated on the throne of Grace with a heart of compassion towards us because He can sympathize with all our weaknesses. During His life on earth , the Lord has gone through all the trials and tribulations and temptations that we go through in our lives and He understands our pain and sorrow and humiliation and temptations . Therefore we can approach Him confidently in our times of brokeness because He understands us and sympathizes with our weaknessess and He is ready to shower His grace and mercy upon us.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

********************

ISAIAH 53:3-5

" He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,and by his wounds we are healed. "

HEBREWS 4:15-16

" For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin.

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. "

4. PARTNERSHIP

The Lord went through a path of suffering and pain to fulfill His mission on the cross. If we want to know the Lord intimately in our lives , we should be willing to be a partaker in His sufferings . The Apostle Paul realised that if he wanted to Know Christ in an intimate way , he should have the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings . If we do not want to share in the sufferings of Christ , we cannot really know Christ in an intimate way. Therefore whenever we go through a path of suffering and brokeness , it is an opportunity for us to know Christ intimately because we are sharing in His sufferrings.
