The Healing Salve of Jesus

He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. Psalm 147:3 King James Version

When children fall and hurt themselves, they want their mothers. They know that their mothers will make it all better. When my nephew was little, he used to tell me “Momma will make it all better.” It is the same when Christians get hurt. We want Jesus because we know that He will make it all better. Only Jesus can see into our hearts and only Jesus can make it all better.

When we are discouraged, heartbroken, depressed, lonely, and really believe that nobody loves us, Jesus gently applies His healing salve of compassion and understanding to our hearts. He holds us close to His heart as He tenderly wipes the tears from our eyes with His kisses of unconditional love. Thank God for the healing salve of Jesus.

Has someone said something cruel to you or done something to hurt your feelings? Do you feel like nobody cares about you? Are you lonely and discouraged and heartbroken today? If so, run into the waiting arms of Jesus. He will apply His healing salve of compassion and understanding to your heart as He tenderly wipes the tears from your eyes with His kisses of unconditional love. Jesus really does love you and He really does care when you are hurting.
