Then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” (that is, “Be opened!”) And immediately the man’s ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
Many of us find ourselves bound, stuck, struggling, or hurting in some way or many ways. Just as Jesus “groaned” in today’s scripture reading…God groans in yearning to heal us in our brokenness. Jesus healed this deaf man as he had healed many others of physical, emotional and psychological problems. He knows exactly the healing that you need. He is the Divine Physician. Call out to Him. Then…have faith that the healing you need will happen. But remember…the healing you want might not be the healing you need. God’s objective is that each of us becomes the full, unique person that each of us was created to be. You are on the path to becoming your “true self.” Trust that God knows best the path, the experiences, and the healing that you need to become whole.
