Lord Heal my wounds so I can Grow..
Many of Gods people have joined the Body of Christ and because many leaders are so ill trained and even carnally minded:
People have tried to forget "what lies behind" and not been trained and taught to allow God to deal with what lies behind. The childhood bruises that we not only acquired outwardly but in the inner man as well.
Wounds in our spirit causes:
· Spiritual imprisonment
· Occult Involvement
· Lustful characteristics
· All kinds of Defilements
Picture a conduit that joins two people without going through Christ. Transference of unclean spirits,harmful spiritual influences, bonds that join two people can go through that conduit. That's a soul tie.
Christ should be the only bond that joins two people in the Body of Christ.
The Source of Soul ties
1. Intentional submission of your will to another
2. Self Induced Bondage
3. Unintentional Submission of the will
What do I mean by rejection?
It is something
· in the emotions
· and in the heart
· An attitude
The opposite of rejection is acceptance
Some of the most common words to describe rejection would be:
· The feeling of being unwanted
· Not really belonging
· Somehow on the outside looking in
· But never knowing how to get on the inside
That's the kind of attitude, the kind of inner feeling that I'm speaking of.
The most common and the deepest wound that human hearts experience .
Isa 54:4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.
Isa 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
Isa 54:6 For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.
This is the picture of a wife deserted, distressed in spirit. A wife who married young only to be rejected. (It could also be the other way around to the male).
Isaiah picks out two things most commonly associated with rejection:
"You will not suffer shame"
"You will not be humiliated"
Shame and humiliation.
· To have given yourself without reservation to another person,
· to have poured out Love upon them
· To have made yourself available to them
· And then discover they have rejected you
This often brings an open shame and humiliation (that's the outward/external association)
The internal Isaiah calls a "crushed spirit". Other versions call it a "wounded spirit" or a "broken spirit".
Proverb 18:4 says
Pro 18:14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear (or lift)?
Wounds in the spirit are difficult to define. They are even difficult to diagnose because they go deeper than the human mind or the human memory.
Great damage comes to the character and personality of people who carry wounds in their spirit because often they are not actually conscious of them because they have:
· Covered them over
· So the memory won't recall them
· and the mind won't face them
But they still live deep down in the spirit and cause character flaws
And hinder growth
What causes rejection?
We've seen the example of a poor/bad marriage
But there is another common cause that can be even more damaging and that is lack of love from one or both parents in childhood.
Love that is unexpressed, still doesn't meet the need of a child's need to feel loved.
The love of a father is extremely important in a child's life. The love a father brings real and needed security.Children who have not grown up knowing the expressed love of a father grow up:
And many times with the wound of rejection.
Knowledge is the first step to healing!
