Over the years, an essential part of Word Based
Counseling has been helping people deal with their
hurts. Hurt is a part of life; you can't live life
without getting hurt. Ideally, each time in our
gotten hurt, we would have gone to the Lord and said,
"God, I got hurt; I give it to you." And God would
have poured out grace and healed the hurt. Then we
would have left it behind and gone on in faith and
But for many of us, when hurts have come, we haven't
known about the grace of God and how to receive it.
Or if we did, we were so hurt or angry that we didn't
want to. As a result, there are times we have a
backlog of wounds in our lives, hurts that never got
healed. And that can provide fertile ground for
unforgiveness, anger, rebellion, hopelessness,
withdrawal, and self-protective (or destructive)
defenses toward man and God.
God desires a people who will walk with Him.
Therefore, when the effects of sin and darkness in this
dying world run over and flatten His people like
on the road of life, He is strongly moved to heal,
restore, and raise up His people to walk with Him once
s heart of compassion for us is manifested in and
through Jesus Christ.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because
the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the
afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the
brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives, and
freedom to prisoners (Isaiah 61:1 NAS).
God sent Jesus (Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:18) in the power
of the Holy Spirit to heal the broken hearted; to set at
liberty those who have been crushed and bruised through
the emotional calamities of life. Jesus was
anointed to free those who through their afflictions had
come into captivity and bondage to sin and the devil.
And A Jesus
Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever@
Thus believing these promises and praying with people
for the power of the Holy Spirit to bring healing has
always been integral to this work of Word Based
