Spiritual and Emotional Healing
Sin, abuse, neglect, rejection, betrayal all cause significant emotional and spiritual pain that hurt just as physical pain does. God, our Great Physician, can ultimately heal our broken hearts and bind our wounds, healing, and making us whole. Spiritual and emotional healing is often a process with steps that we need to put action behind. Use these scriptures to guide your heart and mind toward full recovery.

Our Gracious God
Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee. LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.
This 33rd chapter of Isaiah is called a Pindaric, a type of Greek poetry in the style of Pindar, which is interesting considering that Isaiah was Hebrew. The influence of this passage is to disclose the deception of the Assyrians, the Israelite enemy. Their plea, asking God to be gracious, to be our strength and salvation in the time of distress, is critical to spiritual and emotional healing. Does your healing come from the graciousness of God?
Elohim Ozer Li, God My Helper - Psalm 54:4; we thank You for being our Helper. We praise You with a spirit of oneness for Your Grace.

Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
