What Inner Healing is

What Inner Healing is.

Pastor Manny

“God’s methods are many, His principals few, the methods may vary, the principles never do.” Al  Ells

Inner healing or, more accurately deep-level healing is a ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit aimed at bringing healing to the whole person as expressed in the Hebraic  understanding of wholeness.  David expressed it this way: “Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You make me to know wisdom.” Psalm 51:6.

From that standpoint we are provided a much closer understanding in the Greek method of expressing wholeness from compartments, of our Tri-part being as expressed in 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

Since the majority of human aliments are closely tied to damage in the emotional and spiritual areas, I.H. focuses there.

looking inI.H. seeks to bring the power of Christ to bear on healing the roots from which damage springs. The soul of man provides a rich potting soil for the cultivation of memories which serve as nutrients of long term memories. Specific bad roots are often uncovered and related bad fruit exposed such as, unforgivness, anger, bitterness, rejection, low self esteem, fear, worry, and sexual issues.

Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Inner Healing is the renewing of your mind.

As we go through life, we get hurt. When we are hurt, we do our best to keep from falling apart or reacting in such a way that our behavior is considered socially unacceptable. Either way, we suppress our honest (truthful) reaction. Ideally, we would have dealt honestly with each hurt at or soon after the time it happened. But in the course of our lives we stuff the hurt and believe the lie that it’s ok, just go on.

This unwillingness to “keep a short account” with our hurts, leaving them to fester within us results in mild to severe disruption in three relationships: with God, with ourselves, and with others. Disruptions in these areas create most of the garbage, rats like to feed on.

The ideal relationship with God would see us as new and growing creatures (2 Cor.5:17). United with our Lord and one with Him in spirit (1 Cor. 6:17), filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4) and living as close to the Father as Jesus did (John 5:19, 30).

The ideal relationship with self would see us accepting, loving, and forgiving ourselves as God accepts loves and forgives us. We are full –fledged children of God (1 John 3:1; Rom 8:14-17; Gal 4:4-7) as joint heirs with Jesus. Such a relationship frees us to totally forgive any who hurt us.

The ideal relationship with others, would see us as accepting, loving, and forgiving others as God accepts, loves, and forgives them as he has enabled us to accept, love and forgive our selves. We relate in a healthy, constructive manner with all others, especially Christians.  We relate properly to all God-ordained authority.

These are the ideals. In reality we are far from these ideals. So we find spiritual illness in our lives as the results of factors such as sin, neglect of our relationship with God, wrong views of God, and anger at God for what He allows to happen. In addition, we may have inherited a generational spirit or curse and be under satanic attack due to the garbage within us.

Such relational illnesses tend to show up in emotional problems. Our reactions to what others have done to us or what we have done to ourselves often result in damaging attitudes such as guilt, anger, bitterness, forgiveness, and fear.

Improper family conditioning often ushers in responses such as perfectionism, performance orientation, and a critical spirit and feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness.

Note: That, it is the reaction, not the hurt itself that becomes the problem. This proves out so many times in sessions with wounded people. Wallowing in even a legitimate reaction, then, results in the build-up of the emotional garbage demons feed on.

We often have the right to be angry or even take revenge. But Jesus knows if we hold onto that right, the inner infection will destroy us. So He says, “Give it to me.” He is concerned with how you reacted to what happened to you and the fact that you are holding on to it. He is saying “give it to me so I can free you up to receive healing in this wound on your emotions.” As long as you hold onto it He cannot heal you.

Emotional Illness is often signaled by a fear of facing the past. Our brains (spirit brain knows everything because it is linked to the person of the Holy Spirit, physical brain) record everything that happens in our lives. However, they also hide and suppress the recall of the heavy stuff. This is helpful for immediate survival, but if it is kept buried, it infects the present.

Many of us have suppressed hurt for so long and know so little of what to expect if we let it surface that we respond with fear at the very suggestion of dealing with the past. And the enemy is very active in encouraging such fear. Hiding our inner stuff without dealing with it, however, affects the three relationship’s mentioned above.

    Welcome. Yes you are right on. The problem is many of us do not know our true personality. We have many masks we wear to get by.
