It can be easier at times to hold onto hurt and pain then to actually deal with it. Unfortunately this makes a nice place for the enemy to manifest bitterness, hate and unforgiveness. We intentionally don’t pray about it or share it… we pretend it doesn’t exist.
Thankfully, God always has His divine and gentle way of bringing out those areas that we keep hidden. Don’t be ignorant when this happens. The Word of God tells us repeatedly that God is a God who loves us; who gave up His Son for us and has the best interest for us. And He can heal us.
Hebrews 12:14-29 warns against refusing God. Verse 15 says:
“See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many”
Dealing with our ‘stuff’ and getting healing doesn’t change God- it changes us. Let us swallow our pride and hurt and bring it to God in boldness and humility. Jesus is waiting for you to leave it at His feet so He can say to YOU: It. Is. Finished.
Psalm 147:3-“He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.”
