It is possible to live a life of healed of the pain of the past. Spiritual healing allows us to live in victory, free of sin and harmful emotions that hold us in bondage to the past. Healing ministries provide key steps to unlocking dark areas in our soul (mind, will, emotions) that are caused by experienced trauma of the past.
Healing ministries provide truths concerning traumas. Trauma affects your ability to walk in the fullness of Christ. According to Webster’s College dictionary traumas are defined as: 1. A body wound or shock produced by physical injury, as from violence or an accident. 2. Physical shock or severe distress from experiencing a disastrous event outside the range of usual experience, as rape, military combat, or an airplane crash. 3. Any wrenching or distressing experience. Spiritual healing is essential in order to walk in the fullness of the promise available in Jesus Christ of abundant life.
Traumas can be an open door in the spiritual realm to undesired emotions that can trap a believer in Christ in that traumatic event, not allowing them to move into a place of victory and triumph which is promised them in Scripture. The word of God is truth and the promise of peace and joy is a reality that can be achieved by the believer as they experience true healing from wounded areas in their lives caused by trauma. Ministries are available which specialize in spiritual healing which sets people free from traumas of the past.
Trauma is considered by healing ministries to be any event from the past from which we are still carrying pain, broken trust and/or unresolved negative or harmful emotions. Traumas enable the enemy to plant distortions of truth within our minds and to bind our hearts with bitterness caused by fear. Wounded areas in our souls (mind, will and emotions) can grow into strongholds. Ministries teach that strongholds are areas in our flesh that are fortified against living life in the Spirit. A life style free of unwanted fears and negative emotions is only possible as we deal with the hurt and pain of the traumatic experience.
Traumatic events in childhood such as accidents, illness, and abuse can implant strongholds in our lives that are difficult to overcome. Numerous fears can follow a child into their adulthood which may develop into phobias, irrational dislikes, dreads, anxieties and bitter resentments such as shame and regret. Thoughts such as: “you are not wanted” and “you will never make it” fight to shape the thought patterns of children following a traumatic event. These thought patterns can also follow an adult and hold them back from living a life of liberty and freedom in Christ. Spiritual healing is needed in order to be set free from a past trauma.
Freedom is available through Jesus Christ. Healing ministries provide keys for freedom which are available online. It is the desire of Jesus Christ that your soul be completely healed of wounds caused by past traumas. Often the very areas of our heart that we hide from God due to pain and fear are the very areas that He desires to heal us of. If we want to live a life of freedom and liberty in Jesus we must deal with past traumas so that the very roots of fear, bitterness and hurt can be completely removed from our lives forever.
