Today, I want to share with you how to pray when you find yourself rehearsing the pain you feel from betrayal, abandonment, traumatizing events or other relational wounds.
Why do we want to do this? Because we are instructed in the word of God to cast down every vain imagination that set’s itself up against the knowledge of God. What is the knowledge of God for you? That you forgive and even BLESS your enemies!
Here’s the truth: I have been betrayed. Abandoned. Let down. Who hasn’t?
But every single time the enemy came in to steal my peace and my hope…like a FLOOD the spirit of God lifted up a standard, and I was promoted. I believe this in part was due to what I am going to share with you today so listen, this is one of the best tips I have for you if you still feel stuck in the pain.
I don’t believe you are trying to stay stuck. I know I wasn’t. But until I did this one thing consistently, I was not able to let go of the resentment and rage I felt in my soul towards this person. I know that does not sound very “Christian” but it’s real.
Many times we just give people platitudes, like it’s normal to feel angry. Time will help you heal….but here’s the truth. That will not set their soul free from the darkness that saturates it. That will not enable them to overcome the spiritual warfare they are under. We have to learn to be disciplined with our bodies and thoughts in order to cultivate a lifestyle of Christian stewardship.
When you are or someone you are mentoring is indulging in vain imaginations, it becomes a literal addiction for escapism in their soul. Vain imaginations are just as bad as addictions we form to numb emotional pain. The problem is this only leads to deeper darkness and isolation. It’s like leaving a prison cell with a roommate and being taken to solitary confinement.
Only this one thing I share with you will bring them to a suffering that will mature them in their faith. It’s BASIC Christianity to pray for those who mistreat and persecute you unjustly and you can absolutely worship God through pain until you get peace. Your promotion is on the way!
In today’s video, I am going to tell you exactly how to pray and bless them so you can be promoted into more spiritual authority.
