Everyone has a story. It doesn’t matter if you grew up in a perfect family. Each of us has had to deal with the effects of sin and the sin nature. From the moment we are conceived, Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy our lives. Thank God, He sent Jesus to redeem us and bring us an abundant life
If you’re a Christian, you became a new creation in Christ when you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Old things passed away and everything became new (2 Cor. 5:17). That means you received a new spirit instantly and became alive to Christ.
But God didn’t intend for it to stop there. He also wants to remove the old things in our souls—the hurts, brokenness, insecurities, and deep-rooted emotional issues.
First Thessalonians 5:23 (NKJV) says, “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
God redeemed us completely through the blood of Jesus. That redemption includes the devastation the enemy caused in our lives before (and after) we received Christ. That devastation affected our souls and emotions and caused us to fall into a pattern of dysfunction. BUT JESUS WANTS TO RESTORE EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES, INCLUDING OUR SOULS AND EMOTIONS. He came to heal the brokenhearted (Luke 4:18).
Jesus wants to restore everything in our lives, including our souls and emotions.
I’ve seen Christians who think, “I’m born again. Everything has become new,” yet they live defeated. Why? Because they haven’t been real with God and let Him deal thoroughly with their hearts and emotions and the effects of the sin nature in their lives.
You may be dealing with some form of brokenness. Maybe you’ve learned to cope with it. God doesn’t want you to cope with brokenness and dysfunction. He wants to completely rebuild your life.
Jesus is the Master Builder, and He wants to come in and be your Master Builder. God has plans for you. Contrary to the enemy’s lies, you are not here by mistake. God placed a seed in you that holds His purpose for your life. THE LORD DESIRES TO BRING YOU TO A PLACE OF WHOLENESS AND REBUILD YOUR LIFE TO THE POINT WHERE YOU ARE UNRECOGNIZABLE TO YOURSELF. But you must let the Holy Spirit deal with the root of your hurts and fix them.
Allowing the Lord to uproot those hurts in your soul is a process. It starts by first renewing your mind to God’s Word. James 1:21 (NKJV) says, “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” Second, you must learn to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
Following the Holy Spirit’s promptings helped heal me from years of anger, hatred, and resentment toward my father. He divorced my mother and abandoned me when I was 3 years old. I didn’t grow up with a father who loved me. As a result, my life was chaotic and dysfunctional for many years. I made life choices rooted in rejection, insecurity, and abandonment. It wasn’t until my 20s that I made pivotal choices that brought me healing, freedom, and deliverance.
One of those choices was obeying the Holy Spirit’s prompting to forgive my father. That step of obedience opened the door for me to lead my father to Christ and baptize him 20 years after I had
God wants you to know how to yield to His promptings daily. Whatever He prompts you to do, be quick to obey. You don’t want to have to deal with the consequences of not obeying God.
The Heavenly Father wants you to experience true healing and freedom. He has given you everything you need to walk in wholeness and see Him build your life into something beautiful. Simply give Him your heart and soul so He can completely transform you.
