Emotional Healing

Isaiah 58:8 (NKJV)

Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

Bible Commentary

Isaiah 58:8 is a Bible verse from the Old Testament where God promises healing and a breakthrough of the glory of the Lord.

If you read the 58th chapter of Isaiah, you can see this is a promise specifically noted as a reward for proper fasting, or in other words, fasting God’s way.  


The common understanding of fasting is sacrificing food for a specific period of time. In place of the time and attention given to food, we instead focus that time and attention upon the Lord—prayer and studying the Bible.

The people’s argument in Isaiah 58 is that they had been fasting, but God wasn’t responding. God reveals that He is more interested in our attitude behind our fasting than the act of fasting, when He uncovers the truth in their hearts in Isaiah 58:3-4 and says:

“In fact, in the day of your fast you find pleasure,
And exploit all your laborers.
Indeed you fast for strife and debate,
And to strike with the fist of wickedness.


He knows the selfishness and lust in our hearts to win, whether it’s our favorite political candidate, sports team, climbing over our co-workers to reach the top or oppressing our subordinates to stay on top. Our sacrifices mean little if it’s for our own honor.
