I read something a few minutes ago that broke me heart and moved me to tears of intercession. For the first time I heard someones heart and it broke mine. Although I’ve been told some things, for the first time, I actually see. It has never been broken down for me like that. Worse yet, I see how I may have contributed to wounding someone who is already greatly wounded. God help me!
I’m not going say much more. I am just going to commit myself to prayer for that person. Not going to say much more. I feel really bad. All I can say is father forgive me for I didn’t really know what I was doing.
You see I too have my wounds. I sustained some stuff from my relationship with my Dad. And it has shaped me into who I am today. I am acutely aware that I need to change. But its time for everyone to be healed so that we can move on with life.
We ALL exhibit snake-like behavior at times. All of us. We are not that, but sometimes our behavior is that way. But God can change that terrible nature within us ALL. I’ve done it, we’ve all done it.
Sometimes we think a person is our answer, but they aren’t. They have their own issues. That’s why God wants us to get healed FIRST. Believe me when I tell you no person or love of a person can heal us. It’s really only in God. When you think you have found the answer apart from him, he will let us know that is not it either and we will inevitably end up with more wounds.
I got more clarity today. Listen folks. Even the most brilliant, smart successful person can be a walking wounded. But God is the healer. He alone! You have to believe it. God can and will deliver!
King James Version (KJV)
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
