Healed Healers - Part II (5 of 6)
Last week, we talked about how God desires that we be healed healers.
Isaiah 58:11 The Lord will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. 12 Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.

God rebuilt us from the burnt stones and the rubble of our sinful past and He uses our testimony to bring stability and healing to others.
REPAIRER - Repairer of the Breach. A repairer that fills in the gaps, the holes and the missing pieces in people's hearts and lives with the love of Jesus. Jesus' love fills the gaps and repairs the broken and missing pieces. We as the church help turn the focus away from the missing pieces to helping them find WHOLENESS in Him!
RESTORER - Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. We can help people come out from the shadows, from the prison of hiding and come to a safe place. The church is to be that place of safety and healing.
