Quote inner healing:

Inner Healing: When we are forgiven all our sins at the cross, but continue to harbor resentments against others, we bring all our debts – in full weight, like those of the unforgiving servant, back on ourselves! Can there be any more compelling reason for inner healing? –  If we will just allow the Holy Spirit to search our hearts to reveal areas where we are not living to the standard of Jesus words and then repent by letting go and letting God restore us to wholeness through His forgiveness, mercy, favor, grace, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost which then builds in us inner strength to stand strong as Christians and run the christian race with vigor”

– Monday Ogwuojo Ogbe – Otakada.org

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.”

― Danielle Bernock, Emerging With Wings: A True Story of Lies, Pain, And The LOVE that Heals

“The initial confrontation of the root is the most critical part of this journey.”

― Bruce Lengeman, To Kill A Lion

“Be a pain transformer,

not a pain transmitter.

This is the only way

the world will heal.”

― John Mark Green

“The damage and invisible scars of emotional abuse are very difficult to heal, because memories are imprinted on our minds and hearts and it takes time to be restored. Imprints of past traumas do not mean a person cannot change their future beliefs and behaviors. as people, we do not easily forget. However, as we heal, grieve, and let go, we become clear-minded and focused to live restore and emotionally healthy.”

― Dee Brown, Breaking Passive-Aggressive Cycles

“Having my defenses down felt good. I didn’t realize how much energy it took to carry my armor. My wall of protection kept bad stuff out, but it also kept good stuff from coming in. Guarding my heart is important, but not at the expense of being known by people who love me.”
― Shauna L Hoey

“At sixty one, I was at the top of my professional career, a wife, mother, and grandmother with many wonderful friends–and absolutely terrified….I was unaware of living as multiple identifies, but did spend my life running away from a ‘me’ I could neither understand nor tolerate….The first step to becoming one whole person happened to me the day in therapy when I became aware of the three adults who had been living in separate compartments in my brain. I saw them and they saw each other….A perfect three-point landing.”

― Janyne McConnaughey, Brave : A Personal Story of Healing Childhood Trauma

“Healing is painful. It means disinfecting deep wounds. It means experiencing the pain for a season in order to put in the past for a lifetime.”

― Emilyann Allen

“As sons we have that choice: we can own what was done to us and choose to do better or we can do worse and continue a theme of broken men. [Broken men break other men. Broken men break women. Broken men break families. Broken men create broken legacies ].”

― Ross Victory

“True Healing is not found in going backward, but becoming something new in Christ.”

― John M Sheehan

Key Verses:

Matthew 6:6 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) But when you pray, go into your [ most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you in the open.

Matthew 7:24-27 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) 24 So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [ obeying them] will be like a [a]sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock.

25 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

26 And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid (foolish) man who built his house upon the sand.

27 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great and complete was the fall of it.

Revelation 3:18 Amplified Bible (AMP)

18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold that has been heated red hot and refined by fire so that you may become truly rich; and white clothes [ representing righteousness] to clothe yourself so that the shame of your nakedness will not be seen; and healing salve to put on your eyes so that you may see.

Luke 21:34-35 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

34 But take heed to yourselves and be on your guard, lest your hearts be overburdened and depressed (weighed down) with the [a]giddiness and headache and [b]nausea of self-indulgence, drunkenness, and worldly worries and cares pertaining to [ the [c]business of] this life, and [ lest] that day come upon you suddenly like a trap or a noose;

35 For it will come upon all who live upon the face of the entire earth.

Matthew 18:23-35 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

23 Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a human king who wished to settle accounts with his attendants.

24 When he began the accounting, one was brought to him who owed him 10,000 talents [probably about $10,000,000 ],

25 And because he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and his children and everything that he possessed, and payment to be made.

26 So the attendant fell on his knees, begging him, Have patience with me and I will pay you everything.

27 And his master’s heart was moved with compassion, and he released him and forgave him [cancelling ] the debt.

28 But that same attendant, as he went out, found one of his fellow attendants who owed him a hundred denarii [about twenty dollars]; and he caught him by the throat and said, Pay what you owe!

29 So his fellow attendant fell down and begged him earnestly, Give me time, and I will pay you all!

30 But he was unwilling, and he went out and had him put in prison till he should pay the debt.

31 When his fellow attendants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and told everything that had taken place to their master.

32 Then his master called him and said to him, You contemptible and wicked attendant! I forgave and cancelled all that [great] debt of yours because you begged me to.

33 And should you not have had pity and mercy on your fellow attendant, as I had pity and mercy on you?

34 And in wrath his master turned him over to the torturers (the jailers), till he should pay all that he owed.

35 So also My heavenly Father will deal with every one of you if you do not freely forgive your brother from your heart his offenses.

Hebrews 12:15 – See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled

Luke 9:23 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

23 And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [[a]disown himself, [b]forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, [c]refuse and give up himself ] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [[d]cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also ].

Now, let’s explore The Secret of inner healing in the secret place – 3 True Life Stories of the consequences of healed or unhealed inner wounds for James, Josephine and Busola

I would like to provide you some introduction to inner healing in the secret place that can help us appreciate these stories and also take step towards wholeness in our spirit, soul and body.

Inner healing is the discipline of digging deep, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the secret place, to discover whatever roots might be springing back to life, and to bring them to effective death on the cross. (Hebrews 12:15)

Inner healing in the secret place requires us to go deep into our hearts to replace all unbelief to the word of God one step at a time (Hebrews 3:12)

Inner healing in the secret place is the continual process of daily dying to more and more areas of our sinful hearts as the Lord reveals them. (1 Corinthians 15:31; Luke 9:23)

Inner healing in the secret place is the continuous sanctification process whereby our mind is being renewed so that we can be transformed (Romans 12:2)

Transformation is the process by which the Holy Spirit changes every wrong thing in us into blessing.  Our deserts are transformed into gardens, our weaknesses into strengths ( 2 Corinthians 12:9), our degradations into glories ( Isaiah 61:3)

Inner healing in the secret place does not erase a memory or change our personal history. Rather, it enables us to cherish even the worst moments in our lives, for through them God has inscribed eternal lessons onto our hearts and prepared us to minister to all who have suffered in the same way (Hebrews 2:18).

We know we are healed and transformed when we can look back on everything with gratitude. In whatever way, we have sinned or were sinned against, God has written wisdom and knowledge into us so that now we can help others (2 Corinthians 1:4).

Sanctification and transformation are God’s intention for everyone – He purposes to accomplish these two through many means – secret place prayer, Bible reading, trials and testings, good works that write lesson onto our hearts, the witness of brothers and sisters, teaching, sermons, etc. Another of the primary means He uses to sanctify and transform is inner healing

As we go through our counseling series, the aim is to change individuals – and indeed, the entire body of Christ – into a “mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13)

Let’s look at the 3 true live stories now

True story 1 –  James sleeps around, drinks excessively – can’t stop it! Loves the wife dearly.

Matthew 7:1-3 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

7 Do not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves.

For just as you judge and criticize and condemn others, you will be judged and criticized and condemned, and in accordance with the measure you [use to ] deal out to others, it will be dealt out again to you.

Why do you [a]stare from without at the [b]very small particle that is in your brother’s eye but do not become aware of and consider the beam [c]of timber that is in your own eye?

James is born again, love his wife, enjoys good marital sex. But James confessed that he went to drinking joint (bar) compulsively and, while there, would meet some woman with whom he would go out and commit adultery.

“I don’t understand myself. I love the Lord. I love my wife. I want to be faithful. I don’t even like the taste of alcohol! And the sex with these women is so bad it’s repulsive. Why do I do what I don’t even want to do?”

James’s father had been an alcoholic and a woman-chaser. As a boy, James had hated that and judged his father for it.

God’s laws are absolute. The boy had dishonored his father. Life would not go well with him in that area, and the same judgment would be meted out to him as he had meted out to his father.

He will do what his father had done until repentance set him free.

He understood and repented of his judgments against his father. From that moment on, he was free. Nor has he suffered another moments compulsion to sin in those ways. He took the case to the foot of the cross and left it there.

True story 2– The effects of Josephine’s bitter-root expectancy against her Father

Hebrews 12:15 – See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled

Bitter-root judgment operates by the power of law; we will reap what we have sown (Gal 6:7, Hebrews 12.15).

Bitter-root expectancy is merely psychological. It is self-fulfilling prophecy: “I expect life to go in a particular way and it usually does.” Whether or not it really does, we look at life through the lens of our unconscious expectations and treat others in ways that tend to bring back on us what we expected in the first place.

Josephine’s father was gone most of the time. When he was home, he scarcely noticed and rarely complimented her. Josephine’s response: to develop a bitter subconscious expectancy that all men would treat her like that.

Later, when men began to notice her, they were puzzled as to why they did not treat her as courteously as they did other women. Intended compliment got left unsaid, somehow, or were spoken so awkwardly they seemed like put-downs. Men forgot to phone her, though they planned to and doing so was their normal pattern. Why? Because Josephine bitter-root expectancy was tempting them to err.

But bitter-root expectancy does not possess the power of bitter-root judgments. Our expectations cannot coerce others to sin with the same force that our bitter roots coerce ourselves to sin. People have free will; they can resist. However, the strength of our expectations can require some incredibly strong resistance on their part!

True story 3 – The effects of Busola’s Bitter-root judgment against her father

Hebrews 12:15 – See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled

Busola’s father made her work the family farm like a laborer or fieldhand, although she was a child, while he stayed in the house and got drunk. When Busola came in from the fields, exhausted, he accused her – especially as she grew into adolescence – of having sexual affairs with one or another of the laborers (farmhands).

Busola grew into a beautiful woman, she married, unaware that she had made a very bitter-root judgment against her father. It was not long before her husband lost his job. But instead of looking for another, he made her go to work while he stayed home and drank. When she came home, he would accuse her of having sex with men at the office.

After several years of this hell, Busola divorced him. It was not long before she found another husband. But within six months he had quit work and she had to find a job to support them both. Incredibly, he, too, began staying at home drinking and – when she came home- accusing her of adultery. No amount of scolding, pleading or arguing on Busola’s part made any headway. Secular counseling only increased her determination to divorce him, which she did.

Along the way, Busola became a Spirit-filled Christian. Although she had never expressed forgiveness towards her father or brought that pattern of judgment to death on the cross, she thought her anger was all taken care of. And now that she was a Christian, she thought she had grown at last into some wisdom. So, she searched carefully, found a Christian man who happened to be quite rich, and married him. She thought she had it made.

Within a year, he made her go get a job. More incredible yet, although he had never been a drinker, now he began to stay at home and get drunk. And – you guessed it. When she came home, he began to accuse her of illicit affairs at work.

Do you see the power that bitter-root judgments have to defile others and affect, even in some cases (what their implicit permission, of course) control their behavior?

Jesus told us the story of a man whose debt was forgiven in Matthew 18:23-35. The servant was forgiven ten thousand talents who would not forgive his fellow servant of a tiny sum.

When we are forgiven all our sins at the cross, but continue to harbor resentments against others, we bring all our debts – in full weight, like those of the unforgiving servant, back on ourselves! Can there be any more compelling reason for inner healing?

Busola was so mad with men that she resisted seeing the causes of her problem – partly because she would have to admit her role in it. When she finally did see, she did not repent. It only made her angrier at them. She blamed the men in her life: They should not have gotten drunk. They should not have falsely accused her.

The facts were all on her side, but God looks on the heart to reveal motives: “1 Corinthians 4:5 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)So do not make any hasty or premature judgments before the time when the Lord comes [again ], for He will both bring to light the secret things that are [now hidden ] in darkness and disclose and expose the [secret ] aims (motives and purposes) of hearts. Then every man will receive his [due ] commendation from God.”

Busola was passing judgment before the time of the Holy Spirit’s coming to disclose her own motives. Had she been able to repent, God would have praised her for standing and trying to do what was right, despite her history.

Busola will not repent, and left without receiving healing.

Some fasting and prayer are unnecessary if we will just obey what the word of God says.

Now, lets explore the 5 goals of biblical counseling 6 of 12

5 Goals of Biblical counseling: The immediate goals of counseling are:

            -To guide the counselee in identifying and stating his problem.

            -To provide scriptural counsel for dealing with the problem.

            -To help the counselee find salvation, forgiveness, healing, deliverance, comfort, and answers to problems through the application of scriptural principles.

            -To promote biblical change that will transform lives. 

With this in mind, the following spiritual foundations should be emphasized: Salvation, water baptism, baptism in the Holy Spirit, sanctified living, spiritual warfare, and developing the Fruit of the Spirit.   The Word of God, prayer, and membership in a Bible-believing church are also essential.

As a biblical counselor, you are not aiming for self-improvement or rehabilitation.  You don’t want a patched-up version of the old person.  Rather, your goal is total transformation through Jesus Christ:

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

(2 Corinthians 5:17-21)

As a biblical counselor, you are to lead people to experience transformation that results in new life, reconciling them to God through Jesus Christ.  You are Christ’s ambassador, and He is making His appeal through you to a lost and needy world.

The end results of biblical counseling can be summed up in three phrases.  The counselee must eventually:

            -Admit it: Admit that what they are doing is wrong or that what was done to them was        wrong.

            -Quit it:  If what they are doing is sinful, they need to ask forgiveness from God and quit doing wrong.  If what was done to them by others was wrong, they need to quit nursing it and rehearsing it, and they must forgive their offender.

            -Forget it:  When God forgives, He forgets.  The counselee must do likewise–forget the      wrongs they have done and those they have suffered from the sinful actions of others.

The bottom line is, on the basis of God’s Word:  Admit it, quit it, forget it.

Before concluding counseling, be sure the counselee is involved in a local church.  If not, refer them to a church where further Christian growth,  fellowship, and spiritual counsel can continue.

At some point in biblical counseling, a counselee must either accept or reject what God has to say regarding their problems.  When the Word of God is rejected, no further progress can be made in terms of biblical counseling until the counselee agrees to what God says about his issues.  Jesus asked His disciples, “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord’ and do not do what I say?”  (Luke 6:46).  A person cannot truly acknowledge Jesus as Lord unless they totally commit to doing His will.

The Old Testament leper, Naaman,  initially rebelled against the Word of the Lord from the Prophet Elisha.  Eventually, however, Naaman obeyed that Word and he received total restoration.  No more leprosy.  New skin.  A new life!  As a result, Naaman acknowledged that there was no other God in the world other than the one who had just made him whole  (2 Kings 5:15).   That is the testimony of those who receive and act upon the Word of God you deliver in biblical counseling.

DO NOT SEND THEM AWAY – When a weary, hungry, weak crowd gathered around the disciples, these men asked Jesus to send the multitude away:

Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, “Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here.” (Luke 9:12)

But Jesus replied, “You give them something to eat”  (Luke 9:13).

There are multitudes of spiritually hungry people who are too weak to go any further down the road of life.  Will you send them away, or will you give them something to eat? 

Like the disciples, you may feel inadequate for the task–they only had five loaves of bread and two fish.  But these weren’t just any loaves of bread and fish. These elements were supernaturally multiplied because of the  blessing upon them.  You hold in your hands the Holy Scriptures–the supernaturally infused nourishment that is blessed by God and desperately needed by a spiritually hungry world. 

God’s cry through the Prophet Hosea was “I would have healed them…”–but His counsel was rejected (Hosea 7).  The balm of Gilead is only effective when applied (Jeremiah 8:22). 

As a biblical counselor, your purpose is to apply the spiritual balm of God’s Word and share the bread of life with hurting men and women. 

God’s stated purpose is that…  “…My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it”  (Isaiah 55:11,NKJV).

Prayer

Father, we thank you once again for the lessons you have brought our way as we meet hurting people everyday on our journey here on earth. Give us a heart of sympathy Lord God. Help us to be alive ourselves to the fact that there is nothing you cannot do as we make ourselves channels of your blessings to others who are hurting at this time. Give us a tenacious heart that is driven by love for you first and foremost. Thank you Lord for giving us the grace to represent you correctly as we raise the dead, spiritually speaking to a new life in you in Jesus name, amen

We declare every inner wounds requiring healing exposed, as we commit to forgive and repent, we declare total healing of our spirit, soul, body and all that concerns us this day and beyond, we declare hopeless and helpless situation as a result of the wounds restored to the glory of your name, the name that is above every other name, the name of Jesus Christ, in Jesus name, amen

Our Father and our God, We thank You for the privilege we have to gain access to your presence 24/7.

Now, experience all round-success this week and beyond as You are led by your closest friend – The Holy Spirit!

Remember, we are one in Christ Jesus – Only in unity we can have lasting and far reaching impact – Engage!

Ephesians 4:4-6 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) [ There is ] one body and one Spirit—just as there is also one hope [that belongs] to the calling you received—[ There is ] one Lord, one faith, one baptism,One God and Father of [ us ] all, Who is above all [ Sovereign over all ], pervading all and [ living ] in [us] all.
