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.

The Season of Healing (Time to Keep Silence and A Time to Speak)
To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck [what is] planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.
If you haven’t heard someone say, “you’re doing too much,” then you have most likely been in silence. Active people are not in silence; however, there is a season to be still. When seeking spiritual and emotional healing, being busy can cause you to be distracted from the voice of God. There are times when He speaks in a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12) instead of screaming at us from Heaven as we would expect a mother to do. Dealing with Kairos as God’s purpose for a season or timing, there are times to speak maturely and spiritually. When we speak as the oracles of God (1 Peter 4:11), there is an obligation to expose things as He permits (Ephesians 5:11, Proverbs 31:9). What motivates your spiritual talking time?
El Nekamoth, God that Avengeth - Psalm 18:47; we thank You God that avengeth for we are helpless without You. We praise You for the time of purpose and our understanding of healing and restoration. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who respect the Spirit’s leading, so that; we who do His Work will hear His Voice and obey. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
