Topic: His Presence, Word and Touch to Heal
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 61:1-3; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Luke 4:18
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,

Jesus Christ  did  not  waste  the  power  of  the  Spirit  of  the  Lord upon Him. He used the anointing to heal the broken-hearted through His  PRESENCE, WORD AND TOUCH. No situation  appeared before  Him  without  a  solution.  He  solved  problems,  unlocked mysteries,  provided  answers  to  questions  and  settled  turbulence in  people’s  hearts.  People  are  disillusioned  and  the  ministries  of men  and  women  of  God  and  the  Church  must  provide  answers to  their  state  of  despair.
An  example  of Jesus  Christ  healing  the broken-hearted  is  when  He  restored  the  hearing  and  speech of a  deaf  man  who  had  a  speech  impediment.  This  man’s  relatives must have been broken-hearted to see him sick.  
When Jesus Christ healed  him,  the  observers  of  the  miracle  remarked  that  He  had done  all  things  well (Mark 7:31-37). It  was heart breaking for  the sick  man not  to  be  able to hear or speak  well.  He  could  not  enjoy  the  environment  which  he  was  in. He could  not  take  advantage  of  the  opportunities  around  him.  The challenges  he  faced  made  life  difficult  for  him  and  those  around him. Jesus Christ withdrew him from the crowd and healed him. If you are  broken-hearted  in  a crowd, He will isolate  you and heal you.
The  Son  of  God  was manifested  to  destroy  the  works  of  the devil  including  broken-heartedness (1 John 3:8).  
Many  of  the  activities  of  the devil on earth are intended to cause broken-heartedness in people. He  steals,  kills  and  destroys  to  break  people’s  hearts. Jesus  Christ  does  not  reduce  the  impact  of  the  works  of  the devil  on  us.  
Neither  does  He  watch  the  devil  destroy  us  only  to come  to  us  and  console  us  verbally.  He  destroys  the  works  of  the devil  comprehensively  and  irreversibly.
Prayer:
1. Pray and declare that you will dwell in the presence of the Lord forever.
2. Pray also that the Word of God in your mouth will be a healing balm to the broken-hearted.
