“Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body. And refreshment to your bones.”

Proverbs 3:7-8 (NIV)

Sin causes all kinds of problems. Sin produces disorder in every aspect of life.

It stirs up strife and sickness, it grabs onto a person deep within their bones.

But, when we turn to God, and accept Christ as Savior, a profound healing process begins inside us.

“He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.”

Psalm 107:20 (ESV)

True fact about healing, it HURTS. God’s Word is like a fire, that reaches all the way into a person’s bones.

“But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.”

Jeremiah 20:9 (NIV)

Healing means suffering, but the product of healing is joy and peace. Just as a woman suffers while delivering a child, we suffer when God delivers us from sin.

“A woman has pain in childbirth because her time has come; but when she brings forth her child, she forgets her anguish because of her joy that a child has been born into the world.”

John 16:21 (BSB)

“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

James 1:2-3 (NIV)

The process of deliverance is difficult, and at times you may feel like giving up, but if you put your trust in Jesus, He will renew you. Trust God, as you learn and grow into perfection.
