No Matter Who You Are, There is Hope
No matter who we are... a businessperson, salesperson, construction worker, blue collar worker, computer whiz, professional person, mother, father, husband or wife - life can be very cruel and hard, giving us emotional wounds and scars that affect our lives in a very negative way. On the outside, we may look good, but on the inside many of us are hurting from the emotional wounds we've picked up along life's journey.
None of us are exempt from being emotionally hurt from time to time, but you need to know that God's desires for you to be healed of these wounds. Even King David had wounds that needed to be healed.
Psalms 109:22 For I am poor and needy, And my heart is wounded within me.
Unfortunately, the person we have become has been shaped by these wounds and their results. The wounds have produced major strongholds in our lives that render us ineffective and unproductive. This is why many people are unhappy with the way their lives are turning out. They have failed to deal with these important issues and as a result they are impaired from having a life filled with God's riches and abundance.
As individuals it is important for us to break free from the bondage of the past if we are to be successful in the present and the future. Your life doesn't have to remain as it is. Too often the bondage of the past impairs us to the present and the future. We are looking through the present and future through the glasses of the past.
Some people have already acknowledged and dealt with their wounds and have received healing and are living successful lives as a result; and there are some who have accepted their wounds and are coping with life as best as they can. And then there are those who are barely able to function because they have become so injured as a result. Which one are you!
Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
