Does The Bible Tell Us Jesus heals the broken hearted? If so where can I find it?
In speaking of Jesus, the Lord declares this to Israel:
Ezekiel 34:15-16 (NKJV)
15 I will feed My flock, and I will make them lie down,” says the Lord God. 16 “I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick; but I will destroy the fat and the strong, and feed them in judgment.”
This is the Lord’s promise to bind up the broken, but it’s spoken metaphorically. As a shepherd binds the wounds of a sheep, so will the Lord bind up His people, healing them by giving them a new, resurrected body. This is the essence of the phrase “to bind up the broken.” Jesus heals the broken hearted
On the other hand, the phrase “heal the broken hearted” does not appear in the Bible, though the thought is present in other ways. For example, when speaking of how God comforts martyrs, the Bible says:
Revelation 7:14-17 (NKJV)
14 And I said to him, “Sir (My Lord), you know.”
So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
God wipes away our tears in the sense that He promises us a future of glory in new, eternal, sinless bodies living in a Kingdom with Him where we will not have reason to mourn. That is the Bible’s promise for all believers. Meanwhile, the Bible reminds us that we will have difficulties in this life, and there is no promise that the Lord will resolve those difficulties during our lifetime: Jesus heals the broken hearted
John 16:33 (NKJV)
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Jesus says we will have tribulation in this world, but because Jesus has overcome the world, we can know we have better things waiting in the Kingdom to come. Jesus heals the broken hearted
