Jeremiah 30:12,17 This is what the Lord says: “‘Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing. But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord, because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.
Recommended Reading: Jeremiah 30
When God puts us back together, He wants to reach down into the innermost parts of our soul where no one else can go to mend and fill with grace. Jesus is the only one who can take away our shame, guilt, sorrow, pain, insecurity, and more. Nobody has the ability to fill your void and depths of the heart as God does. Jeremiah 30:12 says in one breath that our hurt is incurable, and it feels like that sometimes doesn’t it? But then in the next breath, verse 17, God says He will heal and restore. Restoration and healing doesn’t come when we bypass the process and seek the world’s comforts. Rather, it comes when we seek God. The difference between being restored and healed and not restored and healed lies in the source. You want your heaviness to lift and your soul to feel peace? Then turn to God. Do you desire to feel free from the shame and condemnation? Turn to God. Do you imagine what it feels like to experience wholeness and restoration? Turn to God. He’s the answer to your healing. When we pursue God we experience grace, restoration, and healing that no past can grip onto. No longer can it hold you back from what God has in store.
