Biblical Recovery: Healing the Broken Places

 And make upright paths for your feet lest that which is lame be turned out of THE WAY but let it rather be healed

Hebrews 12:13

 People have hurt us. We feel entitled to feel hurt and angry. We are not entitled. Hard feelings hurt and cripple us. Hard feelings are weaknesses the enemy of our souls capitalizes on and uses against us [and then uses us against anyone else he can]. 

Regardless of sins committed against us, or poor ideas embedded within our psyches, that which is lame within us (weights and sins that easily beset us) can have the effect of turning us out of THE WAY.

It is entirely up to us whether we will allow crippling emotional weaknesses to be healed. This can happen in an instant, but frequently does not. Most of the time we must work out our “own deliverance with fear and trembling.” 

Our Creator provided everything we need for this in his Word and by the power of the Holy Spirit. We should not fear facing our weaknesses but rather he who can deliver us from them. God provided his people with seven steps to freedom from every weight and sin that easily besets us. God’s seven-steps are found in 2 Peter 1:4-11.  

There are many approaches to healing and recovery from many different things, but solutions for God’s people are found in God's Word. God’s answers are simple but never easy. * Here are the Basics of Hungry Hearts "Recover Me Xtreme Discipleship."
