I’ve noticed that sometimes people who hold leadership positions or who are influencers of some type, are the last people to ask for help, or to acknowledge that they too are broken people who are navigating life by the grace of God just like everybody else. Not me though, from the start of this devotional writing journey and honestly, throughout all my walk with God, I’ve made a point of simply being honest. I know, because God has shown me, that transparency is one of my greatest strengths and weapons against the enemy. I know that sometimes I need help. I know that without God I am completely helpless. I know who I am.
When God named this series of devotionals “Deeper”, I knew that meant that He was about to move into some really deep places within my heart and I had to be willing to deal with some really hard things, all the while sharing about the journey and being very honest about it all. That has proven to be so very true.
During the week I had, where the enemy was attacking me directly and God even told me I was under attack, I told Chris that I felt like I should get a SOZO session. SOZO is a type of heart healing prayer. I reached out to Bethel Church’s Transformation Center and scheduled a skype session and had it last Saturday. It was amazing. God really moved in places inside of me that I didn’t even know I still needed healing. These were places that I’ve prayed through previously, but God is gracious and He knows how much we can handle during each time of healing, so sometimes an old wound must be revisited a couple of times just to lend healing to every different facet of the heart. I ended the session receiving some really great and encouraging words straight from God. And was once again reminded that if I want to continue to mature in my faith and as a person, then I must ALWAYS be willing to surrender to the hand of healing and revealing in my life.
Prayer Moment: Do you remain open to God’s hand of heart and emotional healing in your life? Have you hit a point where you think, “I’m good, I don’t need any vulnerable healing because I’ve grown past that?” If that’s how you feel, then I still encourage you to really dig deep into this moment, and like a child, ask, “Daddy, do I need to seek out more heart healing?” Allow God to be honest with you. Allow yourself to be honest. Maybe you’ve never had heart healing. If that’s you and you would like to receive more information, then please reach out to me and I can direct you to a couple of different methods so you can find what works best for you.
God, I ask You to reveal to me any and every part of my heart that is not fully healed. God, I don’t want to live out any belief that is hinged on a lie. Reveal to me where I have believed a lie and now hold it as a truth. I only want to believe You, God. I surrender to You once again. Move in me and grow me into the person You designed me to become. I am Yours. In Jesus name, Amen.
Those who trust in the Lord are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. Psalm 125:1-2
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Psalm 34:10
