1. "I will heal him," "I will lead him also." We all need guidance, as we move on through this wilderness.
2. Another part of the healing is the happiness of mind which Christ bestows upon His reconciled people. I will heal him and restore comforts unto him.
3. Then, too, will follow praise. "I create the fruit of the lips." The songs of heaven will be begun in your souls, even now upon earth.
4. Peace, settled peace. "Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord: and I will heal him." There is in that one word, "peace," a treasury of blessedness which you may forego all else to buy.
