Friendships Gone Awry-There is Hope!

Deep grievances between friends can cause tormenting memories and the “if only” mindset. Arguments and misunderstanding which remain unresolved bring on much hurt. An attitude of defeat and negative thinking can result. The tension that accompanies painful memories is enervating.

SUBMERGED EMOTIONS THAT WREAK HAVOC

A person’s attitude, reactions, outlook, and behavior are all colored, more or less, by our ability to deal with events of the past. Where there are many submerged emotions as a result of painful memories, they can rise up and express themselves in feelings of deep depression, rage, uncontrollable lust, inferiority, fear, loneliness, and hate.

In time, unless and until one comes to terms with the unresolved tensions of painful memories, he can become a prime candidate for an emotional crisis, or he will go through life miserable and very often friendless.

The storeroom of the human mind is both wonderful and terrible. Is there a way to clean out the storeroom so that what remains can be a creative force for good in one’s life?

The ANSWER: God can take the sting out of the past. God knew what He was doing when He sent the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter and to give us power. We need both comfort and power if we are to rid ourselves of memories that bind and emotional responses that cripple our relationships. It is the power of the Holy Spirit, as we call out to God for help that can reach deep down, cleansing the subconscious mind, and get into the depths of one’s heart.

It is a conscious choice we then make to respond to life’s vicissitudes with an attitude that says, “I relinquish all this ugliness to you, God. Restore to me all that is needful so I can walk forward in Your power.”

Business & Work-related Memories

I find many business people suffering from lingering bruises that have come out of work-related encounters. This is very real. To be the victim of someone’s tongue-lashing when you are in no position to defend yourself because you are in a subservient situation can be extremely difficult. Sometimes people even lose their jobs as a result of circumstances. Depression can set in and the resulting stigma and embarrassment can cause much mental anguish. ( Dr. Lester Sumrall, Healing of The Memories)

Release and forgive these people who have done injustice to you so that you can continue to move forward and their jealousy of your gifts and talents will not keep you down or in an emotional state of turmoil and depression. The enemy can only stop you if you get into un-forgiveness and wallow in defeat. Rise up today and forgive and let the past go and move on in victory today!

Pray: I release and forgive all those who have done me wrong. I make a choice according to God’s Word to release and forgive all people and I am now free from all mental torment and free from every prison that the enemy has tried to keep me in.  I am victorious and rising up to fulfill all of my God given destiny right now in Jesus name Amen!

Your Inner Child of The Past- excerpt from (“Healing of the Memories by Dr. Lester Sumrall”)

Many dark memories are often related to one’s childhood. The mind of a child is delicate and impressionable. Many children are deprived of that most basic of all needs – LOVE – a need that remains constant throughout life. To be deprived of it during childhood can be devastating.

Some adults were over-disciplined or over indulged when they were children. Others were subjected to common parental
attitudes that pose various problems for them now as adults. They act out old fears, old habits, old angers, and confusions. They may be unable to relate to people, are oversensitive or over-critical of others.

Our attitudes toward ourselves are largely formed by the emotional atmosphere of our childhood. We carry with us into
adulthood what is now commonly referred to as our “inner child of the past” -these feeling and attitudes picked up during childhood.

More and more we are learning about adults who were objects of sexual victimization and harassment when they were young. The
trauma inflicted upon them has had terrible ongoing consequences. their emotional stability often hangs by a thread.

Many children are forced to grow up too soon. Adults who were hurried through childhood may now feel incomplete and maladjusted.
Many of the most important threads that form the tapestry of the lives of adults were introduced in childhood, especially in the
parent-child relationships. Oftentimes parental modeling was poor, leaving a child timid, distrustful, fearful, self-despising,
defeated, hurt, and sad. A pattern of response is initiated in childhood that far too often gets carried over into adulthood. Captives of our childhood, we grow up marred. God is the Healer of memories! He can put a new spirit within you. Great wrongs that have been done to you can be completely forgiven and forgotten You can say,”Those experiences could have really harmed me emotionally, but God has turned what was meant for evil and used them for good.”

SOLUTION IS TO DO IT GOD’S WAY

1. COME TO THE LORD JESUS AND FULLY GIVE YOUR HEART TO HIM. Receive salvation purchased for you at the cross of Calvary by Jesus.

2. FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE WRONGED YOU. It sets you free.

3. ONE OF THE GREATEST WAYS TO HAVE YOUR MEMORIES HEALED IS TO HAVE LOVE IN YOUR HEART. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you love people.

If you are ready to make this commitment, please pray out loud the following: Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I believe that you died and rose from the dead to save me from my sins. I want to be with you in heaven forever. Please forgive me of all the sins I have committed. I here and now open my heart to You. Please come into my heart, Be Lord of my life and my personal Savior. Baptize me in your Spirit. Amen.

Now that you have given your life to Christ, it is important to pray and read the Bible on a daily basis. It also is important to attend a Bible-believing church regularly. Doing these things will help you to walk in continual fellowship with the Lord.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

“Behave as if your every act, even the smallest, impacts a thousand people for a hundred generations. Because it does.”…Anonymous

We found this quote just recently and it should motivate us to watch what we say and do because our lives can either motivate someone to do good or motivate someone to do the wrong thing or have the wrong reaction which can take them down the wrong pathway. It can also start a generational curse or generational blessing. In Exodus 34:6-7 God is talking to Moses and passes before him proclaiming:                                                                                        

“The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, long suffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity  of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and fourth generation.”

This is a biblical principle as we go about our day to day activities we CAN EITHER START A GENERATIONAL BLESSING OR A GENERATIONAL CURSE DEPENDING ON WHO WE SERVE! So lets serve God with our whole heart and receive His blessings for ourselves as well as for our children and do not fall into the trap of the enemy who would want you to do the opposite to start a generational curse.

Bad Experiences Don’t Need to Overthrow Your Going!

Lester Sumrall writes, “I meet people all the time, and so do you, no doubt, who suffer as a result of bad experiences that have created havoc in their lives. They haven’t learned that our memories weren’t given to us as a means of haunting or hurting us. God doesn’t want us to hold onto the past experiences that have been damaging. Some people feel they can never get over something that’s happened to them, perhaps something that’s occurred a long time ago. They live in the past. They can’t forget an injustice. They haven’t learned the grace of forgiveness. They can’t forget an injustice. ”
God has always been in the restoration business. It has always been His intent to help His children by restoring them to a right relationship with Himself and others. ” We are not meant to be burdened with painful memories, memories that hinder our daily walk with God and from experiencing His joy and peace.” Therefore God always wants to heal our memories and relieve us from all of our heavy burdens if we just learn to give them to Jesus and stop trying to hold onto them and carry them ourselves. Please read the scripture below.

Matthew 11:28-30, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

 

 

 

HEALING OF THE PAST MEMORIES

A new series we are starting today to help individuals get a break through and be free from all painful past memories that are hindering them from receiving the prosperous kind of life God wants them to have.  This is taken from a booklet Dr. Lester Sumrall wrote in 1991 by LeSEA Publishing company. An excellent small booklet to keep with you and refer back to as you need it :HEALING OF THE MEMORIES, by Dr. Lester Sumrall

The main scriptural text for this series is Philippians 4:8

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just….think in these things. ” Phil. 4:8

Letting go of the past and your past mistakes, forgiving everyone who has wronged you and forgiving yourself is key to putting down bad memories and renewing your mind to the truth of God’s Word that you are forgiven once you have repented of your sins by God, and He does not beat us down with our past or our past mistakes. Once He forgives that’s it and He puts it into the sea of forgetfullness and remembers your sin no more.  Only your enemies, and Satan keep bringing up your past and your past mistakes and try to beat you down with them so that you can always feel defeated. Rise up today and forgive others, forgive yourself, ask God to help you put away all painful memories from your past and allow you to be the over comer you are called to be!  Amen

Heaven on Earth Marriage-Husband’s Role & Wife’s Role

In order to have a Heaven on Earth Marriage both individuals must keep God first in their lives.  They must also walk in God’s Word and be humble and obedient to the truth that they know.  Then when a couple comes together in agreement and stay on one accord, not allowing any division between them through strife and arguing, they are powerful against any demonic activity that may try to come against them, their children and their finances.  The bible says one can chase a thousand and two can chase ten thousand. That means that two on one accord in prayer is more powerful than a single person praying by themselves.  This is why it is important for married couples to keep strife out of their homes at all costs and to live peacefully with one another.

Prayer-Healing For Damaged Emotions

 Healing For Damaged Emotions

Father, in the Name of Jesus, I come boldly to Your throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace

to help in this time need. I admit I have felt shame and emotional hurt. I confess my transgression to You [continually unfolding the
past till all is told].

You are faithful and just to forgive me and cleanse

me of all unrighteousness. You are my hiding place
and You, Lord, preserve me from trouble. You
surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. I have chosen life and according to Your Word
You saw me while I was being formed in Mother’s womb and on the authority of Your Word I was
wonderfully made. Now,
I am Your handiwork, recreated in Christ Jesus.
Father, You have delivered me from the spirit of fear and I shall not be ashamed. Neither shall I be
confounded and depressed. You gave me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the
garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that I might be a tree of righteousness, the planting of
the Lord, that You might be glorified. I speak out in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, offering
praise with my voice and making melody with all my heart to the Lord.
Just as David did in 1 Samuel
30:6, I encourage myself in the Lord.
I believe in God Who raised Jesus from the dead, Who was betrayed and put to death because of
my sins and was raised to secure my acquittal, absolving me from all guilt before God. Father,
You anointed Jesus and sent Him to bind up and heal my broken heart, and liberate me from the
shame of my youth and the imperfections of my caretakers. In the Name of Jesus, I choose to forgive all those who have wronged me in any way.
You will not leave me without support as I complete the forgiveness process.
 I take comfort and I am encouraged and confidently say, “The
Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm. What can man do to me?”
My spirit is the candle of the Lord searching all the innermost parts of my being and the Holy Spirit
leads me into all truth. When reality exposes shame and emotional pain, I remember that the
sufferings of this present time are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be
revealed to me and in
me and for me and conferred on me! The chastisement needful to obtain my
peace and well being was upon Jesus, and with the stripes that wounded Him I was healed and
made whole. As Your child, Father, I have a joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation.
This hope
will never disappoint, delude or shame me, for God’s love has been poured out in my heart through
the Holy Spirit Who has been given to me.
In His Name I pray, amen.

Your Natural Talents Are Gifts From God

We all have God-given talents that we were born with. When a person is born-again their gifts and talents are enhanced by the Spirit of God living on the inside of them. The Holy Spirit will tell you it’s not your ability that allows you to minister to others, it is My ability working in you so don’t be proud and arrogant, but walk humbly knowing we are but what we are by the grace and mercy of God. All glory goes to God always because it’s not about us but all about Him! Amen
