HEALING IN THE INSIDE

I found this brilliant article. It’s all about How Jesus has come to heal the inside as well as the outside. We all need to Jesus to heal our wounded spirit and broken hearts in different seasons of our lives. I know it’s been true in my own life

Quote from John Wimber of the Vineyard Movement

While sickness of the spirit is caused by what we do, sickness of the emotions is generally caused by what is done to us. It grows out of the hurts done to us by other persons or some experience we have been exposed to in the past. These hurts affect us in the present, in the form of bad memories and weak or wounded emotions. This in turn leads us into various forms of sin, depression, a sense of worthlessness and inferiority, unreasoning fears and anxieties, psychosomatic illnesses, etc. Included in this are the present-day effects of the sins of the parents in the bloodline of a person. Thus, healing of past hurts touches the emotions, the memories and the person's bloodline.

Quote from John and Paula Sandford of the Elijah House

"Christian healing comes then not by making a broken thing good enough to work, but by delivering us from the power of that broken thing so that it can no longer rule us, and by teaching us to trust His righteousness to shine in and through that very thing. Those who are healing by restoring the self-image are causing people to trust in something repaired in the flesh, a practice reshaped in their old carnal nature, doomed sooner or later to failure. Whereas the Lord heals by leaving the broken part right in place, overcoming it by its nature. Our trust as Christians can only always be solely in His righteousness in us, as us, for us!"

Experts Tend to Agree on Certain Things

People have problems that sometimes remain untouched by conversion, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, Bible study and personal prayer and devotional life.

Hidden in the recesses of the subconscious mind are hurts and wounds that are surrounded by feelings that still adversely affect people in the present.

The focus of healing of past hurts is to release those hurtful memories in such a way that they no longer have a negative effect on a person's present or future experience. This is primarily done through the act of forgiveness.

Receiving and Releasing Forgiveness

From Luke 4:18 (author's paraphrase)—Jesus came to "heal the brokenhearted and set at liberty those who are bruised." You must acknowledge that Jesus took your pain and carried your sorrows. "See Me," says the Lord!
