He Sent His Word to Heal Us

He sent His Word to heal us.” Psalms 107:20

I know from experience the power of God that is released through His Word.  In Psalms 107:20 the Psalmist David said God sent His Word to heal us.  His Word it is more powerful than any two edged sword or a surgeon’s knife.  It’s like laser surgery; it penetrates quickly.

Allow the Truth of God’s Word to penetrate your soul, cutting away all the false ideas and distorted thinking that is designed by the enemy to work like a cancer destroying your faith.

In the past I have written devotionals to bring comfort and encouragement because we live in times where there are troubles on every side. But now, the Lord has prompted me that it is time for the Body of Christ to be healthy and strong in order to rise up above the present darkness.

So allow the devotionals to focus on the Word that will go deeper.  Let the Word root out the issues, the lies, and distorted truths that you have believed that are contrary to God’s ways. If we are children of the All Mighty God we are not wimps, we are overcomers of this world and we are strong in the Lord.

Properly Dealing With the Pain of Rejection

“You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” (John 8:32).

Rejection occurs when someone does not receive or accept you for who you are. It is an error on the part of the one who is rejecting another, not the one who is experiencing the rejection. If you have experienced rejection, it does not mean there is something wrong with you. In Scripture, Saul did not see who David was, Joseph’s brothers did not see who he was, and the Jews of the day did not see who Jesus was. 

The enemy plants lies in our minds at the moment of rejection.  We are then held captive by the lies of rejection, because the lies dictate how we feel about ourselves.  Rejection is not a sign of weakness, although those who suffer from the pain of rejection become weary and even weak. Jesus understands your pain because He too experienced rejection. “He came to his own and his own did not receive him” (John 1:11).
Many people try to get rid of the pain by purposing to forget what happened or by blocking out the person who hurt them. However, the pain that remains is a constant reminder of the rejection. The minute someone says something that triggers the lie they believed, the pain is instantly felt.

Another way many people deal with pain is to run from it or pretend it really isn’t there. Pain is like a shadow, it will follow you no matter how fast or far you run. That is why so many people are walking around with the shadow of the past still on them.
To be set free from the lies, repent for placing the opinion and acceptance of others over God’s acceptance. Christ came to set us free so we could receive the truth and take our seat with Him in the heavenly places. The enemy knows that if he can keep us bound on earth by lies, we will remain in defeat.
Identify all lies that are connected to the rejections, then:

  • Renounce the lies
    Identifying and renouncing lies is very important in the healing process.  Example:  If you still believe that you are unwanted, you will not be able to embrace the truth of God’s acceptance.
  • Renew your mind with the truth
    What does God say in His Word about you?  Write it down, memorize it! (Psalm 139:14-18).
  •  Come out of agreement with the enemy
    If you have believed lies, you have entered into agreement with the enemy. Come out of agreement by renouncing the lies out loud. Example: “I am no longer rejected; I am accepted in the beloved.”
