We read in Luke 4:13-21 (KJV) (shortened):

13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him [Jesus]… 16 And he [Jesus] came to Nazareth… he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day… 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised… 20 And he closed the book… 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Fortunate is the man or woman who has never experienced a broken heart. Adam and Eve must have been brokenhearted when their son Cain killed their other son Abel. Abraham and Sarah must have been brokenhearted for so long when they could not have a baby. Jacob must have been brokenhearted when his wife Rachel died, and when their son Joseph suddenly disappeared.

I lived with my grandparents for a few years in early childhood; during that period, I missed my parents deeply; when I was united back with my parents, it took some years before the sadness in my heart went away; even children can be brokenhearted. I went from hopeless to feeling hopeful; from unwanted to feeling loved; the love from my parents healed me; so I know that brokenhearts can heal!

Jesus states in Luke 4 that one of his mission is to heal the brokenhearted; to give hope for hopelessness; to give love in place of pain. The passage that Jesus read was from Isaiah 61 verses 1-2, and in verse 3 it goes on to say:

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…”.

Wow, what beautiful promise – Jesus gives beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for the spirit of heaviness. I want this to be my experience today and every day. I can’t stop the troubles of life from reaching my shore like waves of the sea, but I can have Jesus be my sea wall breaking the waves and stopping them from eroding my peace, my joy, my health, and my hope.

I pray you let Jesus heal your brokenheart, Amen!
