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 Truth Is In Jesus (Strange Fire 04)
John 14:25-26, 27
These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
What did Jesus say? Jesus said He leaves us peace, His Peace. To make sure that we understand, He gives us a comparison, but not as the world gives. The peace of the world is temporal, and His peace is eternal. There is an occasion in some Christian worship services where congregates "pass the peace." The ritual requires a smile, a hug, or a handshake as a greeting; however, all we can do today is smile and blow kisses. The gesture is a symbol of blessing, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those who worship Him in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24). Paul understood and demonstrated the teaching of Jesus and made a practice of greeting the Ecclesia, the Body of Christ. Paul begins every letter saying, “Grace to you, and peace” (Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:3; 2 Corinthians 1:2; Galatians 1:3; Ephesians 1:2; Philippians 1:2; Colossians 1:2; 1 Thessalonians 1:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:2; 1 Timothy 1:2; 2 Timothy 1:2; Titus 1:4; Philemon 1:3). Is there a reason we are troubled and afraid; could it be because of a strange fire?
Elohe Tsadeki, God of My Righteousness, Psalm 4:1; we thank You for being the God of My Righteousness, the Lord of our atonement. We praise You for eternal peace, His Peace that is beyond anything the world can give. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who have troubled hearts so that; we who allow the Spirit to teach us will neither be afraid and embrace His Peace. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
