Healing Are The Wounds

Healing Are The Wounds…

Proverbs 27:6 says, “Faithful are the wounds of a friend…” The word translated as “faithful” is the Hebrew word “aman.” Aman can mean many things, but one of its meanings is “to nurse.”

A strange thing, because “to nurse” would seem to be the very opposite of “to wound.” The wounds of a friend can actually nurse and bring healing, especially when that Friend is God.

The Lord allows His children to be wounded – to know hurt, emotionally, mentally, or physically. But He promises to work all things, even the wounds, for your good. That means whenever He allows a hurt or a wound to touch your life – even that is for your good. God will use every hurt in your life to bring about a greater blessing; a deeper relationship with Him, spiritual growth, or healing for your soul.

So here’s a new way to look at the hurts and wounds of your life. Every one of them has a purpose to bring you a blessing. Seek God for that blessing, even when you don’t understand it – and that wound will turn from hurtful to healing.

So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. 1 Peter 4:19

Bring your wounds to Him and receive the healing that comes from His wounds.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
