Assessing the Wounds
There are three levels of injury:
Understanding the Wounded
As Christians, we must not be naïve about suffering this side of Heaven.
Scripture is filled with inner wounds of God’s people: Jacob, Hannah, Job, Jeremiah, Peter, and Jesus.
Signs that someone is struggling with an inner wound:
God invites each of us to consider His healing touch.
Cleanse the Wound by Processing the Pain
A wound that is not properly cleansed gets infected and can become a chronic wound; it never heals.
Once we cleanse a wound, a scar begins to form and healthy healing can begin.
Choose the Path of Forgiveness
There are only two paths away from offenses and wrongs: unforgiveness and forgiveness.
God’s Healing is Possible Through Faith
Psalm 38.5; 1 John 1.9
Faith practices to incorporate in your daily life:
God’s Healing is Promised Through Jesus
Matthew 11.28-30; Isaiah 53.3-5
God’s Healing is a Process
Sometimes we are instantly delivered; sometimes God takes us through a process of releasing our burden and receiving healing.
