The Gospel for the Broken Hearted

November 23, 2010 at 8:02 2 comments

Instead of listening the voices in our head that accuses you wickedness or repeating to you-self how you were abused but instead talk scripture to yourself.

Matthew 11:28 says, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will you rest. (NIV)

Paul urges us to: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

(Philippians 4:8 ESV)

In Romans 8 God promises us,

[31] What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? [32] He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? [33] Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. [34] Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. [35] Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? [36] As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

[37] No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. [38] For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, [39] nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:31-39 ESV)

God spoke through Jeremiah and said this:

[10] “For thus says the LORD: When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will visit you, and I will fulfill to you my promise and bring you back to this place. [11] For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. [12] Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. [13] You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. [14] I will be found by you, declares the LORD, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the LORD, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.
(Jeremiah 29:10-14 ESV)

This passage is good for addicts and for those who have been abused by some one. I was abused physically and emotional by my father. For many years I was in exile but God said to me that his plans for me are give me a future and a hope. God can bring back from your addictions or from your abuse and give you peace.

Charles Haddon Surgeon had depressive disorder that kept him from the pulpit many times and he lied in bed quoting scripture to him-self because his thoughts accused him of his sinfulness, but reminded him-self of the Gospel.

The writer sent a letter to some Jewish Christians the Hebrews,

[5c] “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” [6] So we can confidently say,

“The Lord is my helper;
I will not fear;
what can man do to me?”


(Hebrews 13:5-6 ESV)

When we are struggling with your abuse God will never betray you or forsake you.

Remember the Gospel:

God the Father struck down his son to redeem a people for
him-self. When Christ died on the cross two things happened for us his death end our sinfulness and he gave us his righteousness.
So when the Father looks us he sees his Son. When we believe Christ died for us we become blameless in our Father’s sight. As soon as we believe our Father fills our souls with the Holy Spirit giving us joy and peace.
