Chapter 1 - Her Healing
“But for you who fear my name, the sun of
righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings.”
Webster defines healing as a transitive verb which means to make sound or whole; to restore to health; (an undesirable condition) to be overcome; to patch up (a breach or division);
to restore to original purity or integrity. Webster also defines healing from an intransitive standpoint by saying healing means to return to a SOUND STATE. The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia defines healing in a like manner. It defines it as making whole or well,
to restore back to health, repair injuries and spirit caused by sin; restoration and deliverance of the afflicted, and it is applied to the forgiveness of sin. In order to heal, we have to make a conscious decision to take responsibility for our own actions and our ability to accept or reject the actions of others. In order to begin the process
The Foundation of Her Heart
In order to heal, we have to make a conscious decision to take responsibility for our own actions and our ability to accept or reject the actions of others. In order to begin the process of healing, there are some steps that need to take place; these aspects are building blocks that will help you get to the root of your behavior, unbecoming characteristics, and self-hatred,
and will support you mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Let the Healing Begin!
THE 3 RS OF HEALING
The 3 Rs of healing represent- Recognition, Repentance, and Release. These are the three building blocks that will help tear down any strongholds that have you bound. Recognition (Identify) Recognition is the first step in the process of healing. Recognition requires one to research and identify certain behaviors, characteristics, or actions that have caused pain,
hurt, anger, or insecurity in your life. Recognition is the acknowledgment that there is a problem. If you cannot acknowledge that there is a problem, then you will never
seek out a solution. Recognizing that there is a problem is normally difficult due to the fact that no one wants to admit that they are flawed. Life has dealt a difficult hand to many of us, and we need to learn how to play those hands effectively to get the best results.
This is not a process that happens overnight; it will require time and effort on your part.
Every emotion, action, and defense mechanism has a root or beginning. What happened in your life to create this spirit of anger?
Where did the attitude “I don’t need a man, I can do anything a man can do” come from? What happened in your life that broke your trust to the point where you do not trust anyone? Why are you always expecting the worse in every situation? These are just a few questions you should ask yourself in order to get to the seed that created the fruit of anger, rejection, guilt, bitterness, unforgiveness, etc. Each individual that reads this will need to identify their
own fruit and the seed that was sown to create this fruit. Once the seed has been identified and you recognize it, you can now begin the repentance process.
READ THE PRAYER OF REALIZATION
For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant us to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith-that we, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ
that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. AMEN. -Ephesians 3:14-21
The Foundation of Her Heart
Lord, Open my eyes to your wonders, (Psalms 119:18) that I may see me through your eyes. Show me the areas in my life that need firm resolutions. Make me susceptible to the hidden places that have been packed in darkness for years. Shine your light on and through
my life. Search me O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts (Psalms 139:23). Help me see the person I have become from all the hurt, pain, unforgiveness, and unresolved issues! Help me to understand how these seeds grew roots and produced this unproductive fruit. Open my eyes, Lord, so that I may know what to repent and ask forgiveness for this day. Today, I thank You for showing me who I am -- currently -- so that I am working towards who
you have called me to be. AMEN.
The One Who Now Sees
Repentance (The Race for Forgiveness)
The most important aspect I want you to walk away with here is that no matter what someone else did, said, or did not do, remember you are responsible for your own actions and behavior. As humans, we give other people too much control and authority over our lives. Repentance is the act of changing your mind and action. Repentance allows us to confess our sins, actions, and reactions. This confession brings us into humble submission and correction to walk upright and no longer be weighed down by the fruits of corruptible seeds.
When you repent, you are repenting to God — not for entertainment nor to say you did, but for cleansing and anew start mentally, physically, and emotionally. Repentance shows remorse and sorrowfulness for your actions against man and God. It is a sign of the desired change, as well. True repentance brings a change of heart, mind, and actions. 2 Peter 3:9 states: “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”
Now that we have recognized there is a problem and repented, let us work on part 2 of repentance, which is forgiveness. Did you honestly think this was going to be easy?
No, it is not easy, but it is truly worth every tear and pain that you will feel. Know this, if there is pain in the process, it means healing is available.
The QUESTION IS: HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?
The Release: Forgiveness Forgiveness, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is the act
of forgiving someone or something. Webster states that forgiveness is “the attitude of someone who is willing to forgive other people.” Many people are bound by unforgiveness and honestly have no clue that they are bound. There is a reason that God calls us to forgive. Ephesians 4: 32 states, “Be kind to one another tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as
God in Christ forgave you.” How can we repent to God and ask for forgiveness but refuse to forgive others? Not everyone that has wronged you, hurt you, or mistreated you will ask
for forgiveness. Some of those who mistreated you will feel they have done nothing wrong. So, this is what you have to do to free yourself— FORGIVE THEM AND YOURSELF!
(whether they ask for forgiveness or not). Make a choice today that you will not go another day bound by someone else’s actions. Today, choose to forgive those that are dead and gone
who never asked and those whom you felt never deserved forgiveness. After you have adopted the attitude of forgiveness, release all the pain, hurt, negativity, and insecurities that came with it!
Release(A Breath of Fresh Air)
The one thing I noticed when defining release is that in order to release, you must understand that it is your personal choice and responsibility to free yourself from all that you have
researched, recognized, and repented of. Webster defines release as allowing ( a person or animal) to leave jail, a cage, a relationship, etc.; to set ( someone or something) free; to stop holding ( someone or something); to allow ( a substance) to enter the air, water, soil, etc. Defining release opened so many avenues of discussion, but we are going to restrict it
to only a few.
Do you understand that in the healing process, you have to choose to want to be healed? You have to decide whether you are going to do the work of researching your own life for issues. You have to decide whether or not you will repent and forgive. You have to choose whether or not you will release it all. Skipping any one of these steps will cause your end results to become a false-positive. False-positive means you feel good for a moment until that damaged seed begins to dig its roots deeper.
As someone who has had to take my own advice, I would advise you to move while the anointing is operating in this area. If the subject is being presented, then the anointing
is present for deliverance. The anointing to release makes matters so much easier than trying to do it in your own power and will.
While you are walking in this season of release, know that it doesn’t mean that you haven’t done wrong or that others haven’t wronged you, but it does mean that you trust the forgiveness of God more than your ability to hold on to hurt and pain. In this season of healing, remember this, 1 John 1:9 states that “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to
forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Recognize that there is a problem, Repent for holding onto the pain and trying to make others pay for how they hurt you, and release it by casting all your cares upon the Lord and Savior. Walk in the beauty of forgiving yourself and others.
Read The Repentance Prayer - Psalms 51:1-13
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your word
and blameless in your judgment. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall
be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and
take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you.
The One Who Forgives and Is Forgiven
Pray the Prayer of Release - Luke 2: 29-32
Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for
revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel. Father, Help me to walk in peace, in joy, and in love. Let this release be one that will magnify your name and
bring glory to the body of Christ. Let the cleansing of my heart and the renewing of my mind be a path of light that leads me closer to You. Lord, release every hurt, pain, heartache, bad thought, and every ounce of jealousy, anger, pride, envy, manipulation, and every idle word that was spoken out of emotion. Lord, I cancel the evil assignment created by my own words and deeds. I refuse to walk in condemnation, but I choose to release it into your hands and walk into my freedom, healing, and deliverance.
