Healing the Inner Man

Healing the Inner Man

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.(John 8:36)

Healing of the heart or soul (inner man) comes through relationship with our Heavenly Father through His Son Jesus Christ.  Once we are saved we go on a journey of learning how to abide in Christ and how to live as Sons of God.  We learn how God sees us and thinks of us and we fall more in love with Him.  We see that He is our perfect Father and unlike our earthly parents or authority figures He would never abuse us or harm us.  We learn to trust Him because He is always faithful.  This is a learning process that comes through studying the Word of God to understand who God is and His great love for us.  Healing comes to our souls as we step out in faith and forgive those who have offended us, pray for those who have used us, and ask God to keep changing our hearts.  When we are tempted we choose God’s way because we love Him and are so thankful to Him.

Healing principles:

  1. Repent of your sins – be open with the Father about what you feel and struggle with and cry out to Him for help – be humble – HEBREWS 5:7-9
  2. Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so you may be healed – let the Spirit of God show you what to pray for each other – JAMES 5:13-18
  3. Forgive those who have hurt you and bless them – LUKE 6:27-31
  4. Obey God no matter how you feel – let the fruit of the Spirit come forth daily – GALATIANS 5:22-24
  5. Practice the spiritual disciplines daily: prayer, confession, fasting, worship/praise – stay connected to Jesus (abide in Him) – JOHN 15:5-10
  6. Walk in the Spirit – rely on the Holy Spirit to lead you in everything – ROMANS 8:5-6
  7. Serve God, help the needy, focus on helping others not yourself! The less you focus on “self” the more free you will be – ISA. 58:6-14
