Every manifestation of evil has its origins in the areas of a person’s life that have been buried. For inner heart healing to take place they must be brought to the surface and exposed to the light of God’s love, word, grace, forgiveness and healing. Your spiritual destiny can be greatly impacted by things that took place many years in the past. Hindsight is not twenty, twenty because those events are still viewed in darkness. When our past has not experienced a full measure of redemption then it becomes an unstable platform that can’t support a fully mature walk. Our emotions lie to us and the enemy is there in the past to reinforce that lie so that we think its better to allow it to remain there buried. Victims of any kind of abuse, assault or mistreatment have a vested interest in “not going there” because it aids their ability to cope with how terrible that past experience may have been. The problem is that it covers up painful memories that need to be healed. How they are seen becomes warped by the soul over time. Many decide to keep those events hidden in the past and away from the light. This negates the authenticity of their pain and keeps them from getting help and healing. Because of this many struggle with all forms of addiction to suppress and mask the pain. You may have put this off for far too long but now is the time to make a doctor’s appointment with “The Great Physician”. His light of love that reveals also heals. The most difficult times in our life can be touched by His resurrection life. Draw near to the Lord. Invite Him to shine His resurrection light into those hidden places of the heart. He wants to make who you are in eternity a present and greater reality. That is resurrection life. On that day when you come forth from the tomb of the past everything will appear as new as you see it in the Sonlight of Eternity.
Heb 4:15-16 “For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to understand and sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities and liability to the assaults of temptation, but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning. Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace…”
