Call to me and I will answer you. Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV).
If you want to be healed, you must call out to Christ. You must summon Him. The psalmist says, “I pray with all my heart; answer me, Lord!” Psalm 119:145 (NLT). And the prophet reminds us that God says, “Call to me and I will answer you” Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV).
“Call to me …” Do you want your memories healed? Call out to Christ. Do you want your emotions healed? Call out to Christ. Do you want your thoughts healed? Call out to Christ.
If you want Christ to heal your broken heart, you must secure a meeting place with Him, give yourself back over to Him, come under His authority, make a connection, and establish a forum – an environment – a safe place in which the broken places of your heart can surface.
Here’s a simple prayer to invoke Christ’s presence:
Christ, please help me draw near to You and You to me. Envelop me in your presence. I receive your Lordship and accept your right to rule my life. “Search me, O God, and know my heart” Psalm 139:23. I am totally yours – body, mind and spirit, and I give you my heart – all of my heart – including the broken parts of my heart. For I know You are the One who has made my heart (cf. Psalm 33:15), filled my heart (cf. Psalm 4:7), instructs my heart (cf. Psalm 16:7), probes my heart (cf. Psalm 17:3), sustains my heart (cf. Psalm 105:15), knows the secrets of my heart (cf. Psalm 44:21), and gives me the desires of my heart when I delight in You (cf. Psalm 37:4). Christ, please help me to draw near to You and You to me. Thank You. Amen.
