Today’s exhortation – inner healing cont..
I’m aware that recent exhortations have been deep. However I believe it’s because The Lord wants to do a deeper work in us. I also believe what The Lord is doing is getting rid of the root instead of the leaves. E.g. I had a friend who suffered from severe back ache and the root of it was anxiety. Unless the anxiety was dealt with, the back ache would’ve come back even if it had been physically healed. Similarly, we may ask to God to heal us from something, but if He heals us, that condition may come back because the root hasn’t been dealt with. This root may be a soul hurt, generational sin or resulting curses, ungodly beliefs or demonic oppression. All these areas are connected.
Take an alcoholic and think of the number of hurts caused by them. Usually the immediate family and friends get affected. They do anything to fund their habits, by lying and stealing from family and friends. The trail of hurt, disappointment or shame left behind can run deep. The resulting curses can be alienation, destruction or death that causes major hurt to all involved. It becomes a vicious cycle as their kids grow up to repeat the same mistake. Jesus’ work on the cross is so powerful and has made a way for us to be completely free. We’ve not even scratched the surface of all the benefits available to us through Jesus. May He make known to us the hidden treasures in His redemption so we may receive them. Amen
