God continues in Jeremiah 29:12-14. ” ‘In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me. I will be found by you,’ says the Lord. ‘I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and bring you home again to your own land.’ ”
God’s thoughts toward you are for peace. His plans in you are for healing. He promised the all-surpassing power of His love. He will accomplish His hope, His future, and His well-being in you. When you seek Him, He hears you. He lets you find Him to bring you back from your captivity, whatever it is. His best for you is peace, wholeness, and security.
God’s beloved one, be blessed with the love of Christ for healing. The psalmist said that His body was troubled, and His soul was greatly troubled (Ps. 6:2-3). Be blessed with peace and hope being restored to you. The body may react physically under duress, the soul weeps. It is a total body reaction. Be blessed, spirit, soul, and body, to be healed in the root cause of all disturbance of your peace. Be blessed to reject all lies at the root. Let the power of the Holy Spirit address the lie, and be set free.
Hear the good news: It’s not too late. In the defining message of His life in Luke 4:18, Jesus said that He would set the captives free. If you feel captive in any way be blessed with His love, redemption, and power to flood you and release you. Be blessed in your brain, your mind, and your memory, particularly the part that is holding on to any issues. Receive the compassion of Jesus to address every emotional concern. He is mighty to deal with depression or other aftermath or backlash. Receive the light of His healing grace into everything that is out of God’s order.
God said to Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” And Paul replied, “I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” (2 Cor. 12:9-12).
Beloved, boast in your wounds by declaring that the power of Jesus is in you to heal them. You have the treasure of your life in a human “jar of clay” to show that He is your all-surpassing power to accomplish His plans for your welfare (2 Cor. 4:7).
Be blessed today in the name of the Prince of peace (Isa. 9:6).
