God is Serious In Loving You – Part 6
God is serious of you loving you, as He is serious of you loving Him. He made you in his image. You are joint heirs with Christ. If you don’t love yourself, then you are in self-hatred. That means you are despising God’s creation of you! That is sin and you need to repent of it!
When we have separation in any of these areas, then it affects you in six areas: mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, and financially.
A person with a broken heart struggles in discerning the voice of God. They usually are not hearing the acceptance. They are hearing shame and fear, self-criticism, judgment, self-judgment, self-condemnation, etc. It sounds like their own voice. Why, either God is going to talk to your spirit or Satan is going to talk to your spirit 24/7. There are only two kingdoms out there.
When we agree with the voice of the enemy over and over then a stronghold is formed that we believe is true. Example, the enemy tells you that you committed a sin that God will not forgive and you feel rejected by God. You begin to believe and live out what you believe. Proverbs 23:7 “7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”
A person with a broken heart, loose sight and never come to understand their identity in Christ. When we have a broken heart, you don’t believe the promises. You will have a hard time believing it. Why, because your heart is like a bucket with holes in it. This insures our brokenness continues because we become overcome, rejection, abandonment, fear, shame, guilt, etc.
The nightmares usually progresses often bringing diseases with it because the person with a broken heart get caught up on the performance wheel – performance, perfection, doing, trying, perfecting. You will madly strive to prove to the world and to yourself that you have value or worth. Or just shut down and live in a silent merciless hell of isolation or a little of both.
The Lord became a curse for us. He gave us the tools to recognize, to discern the voice, reject it, and cast out vain imaginations.
Remember what Paul taught us:
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (KJV) for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;):
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Focusing on God’s truth and denying Satan’s lies is therefore is like “reprogramming” of our minds, or a failure to deal with the deepest sinful power of the flesh. It is, in fact, God’s way in which the underlying power of sin is overcome by the power and life of God.
Step 1 Acknowledging and properly expressing the hurt.
“He restores my soul…” Just what does restoration of our human spirit entail?
It includes mending or repairing our psyche and emotional stasis. Restoration allows our human spirit to soar – to function as God in tends – and to contribute its part in attaining the incredible potential in God’s Plan.
Steps To Heal A Broken Heart
First, know the Lord cares for every hurt you have ever had in your life. The Lord wants to take your pain.
Second, make a list from your earliest memories to the present of everyone that has ever hurt you physically, mentally, emotionally, verbally, events and places where you were hurt, etc.
Third, be honest with the Lord. You might be surprised of feelings and emotions that surface as you write your list out. It is very possible to have a broken heart for years – and yet fail to admit it and to deal with it because of emotional hurts because of age, and or way of self-protection, or going into denial! How did the Job respond to the horrendous tragedies that killed his seven sons and three daughters?
Many people are stuffers and don’t deal with emotions – that is not God’s way:
Job 1:20-22 “Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshipped. And he said: ‘Naked I came from my ‘mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.’ In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.”
Step 2 – Dealing with anger, resentment, bitterness, and hatred and releasing those emotions.
First, done be afraid of your emotions or the pain you feel. Second, give yourself permission to feel the pain and give God permission to pull up the pain. Because when you start writing your list out and you feel like crying over a situation, go ahead and cry and release the pain to the Lord. See yourself giving your pain over to the Lord and giving this person over the Lord by forgiving them.
Our emotions have an amazing capacity for good – and for evil (or bad). Failing to deal with strong negative emotions can have devastating consequences. When we feel angry over someone or something that is indication of unforgiveness, bitterness, and/or broken heart.
Ephesians 4:26-27-“Be angry, and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.”
You might even feel angry, resentment, bitterness or hatred over a person or situation as you make out your list. Be willing to forgive these people. Unresolved anger is like a spiritual cancer. It tends to grow and spill over into all of our relationships. It will separate you from others!
Many of our relationships – marital, family, work, etc. — need emotional and spiritual healing. Unclear and unloving communication is the biggest problem in relationships.
Proverbs 25:28 — “Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls”
Ephesians 4:31-“Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.” (These must be re placed with forgiveness and love for others). Bitterness becomes a spiritual poison. We must not allow its presence in our lives.
Acts 8:23 — As Peter said to Simon the Sorcerer, “For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.”
Have you ever hated anyone? John says, “if you hate your brother, is a spirit of murder.” That doesn’t mean you want to kill them but you hate them and that is a spirit of murder. They have spirit of bitterness, bitterness being supported by unforgiveness, unforgiveness being supported by resentment (Matthew 20:21-24), and resentment being supported by retaliation (Romans 12:17-19) and retaliation being supported by anger and anger (James 1:18-21) being supported by hatred (Titus 3:3-5) and hatred being supported by violence (Gen 6:13) and violence being supported by murder (John 8:42-44, 1 John 3:15).
Sometimes we fail to relinquish — or release — the hurt, the pain, and the agony. “God can heal a broken heart, but He has to have all the pieces.” That means every time an event or person comes to mind that bring ill feeling, and then release the hurt to the Lord.
Releasing the hurt and being at peace with ourselves Philippians 4:7 – “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Step 3 – Forgiving Others, Yourself and God and what happens when you don’t!
Are we willing to forgive others, even if they have hurt you and don’t feel like it?
Remember, it is not an emotion to forgive or even an option. It is a requirement that we do or else it separates a person from God, others or ourselves that cause problems in the spiritual walk. We don’t have the right to carry the offense or take justice in our own hands, as it is not our job, “…vengeance belongs to the Lord…” (Psalms 94:1). Remember, forgiving does not always mean it is wise to re-establish or to continue a relationship. God does not expect you to stay in, to continue, or to reestablish an abusive relationship.
