Introduction to Inner Healing and Deliverance - Lesson 01
Lesson 1 - Introduction to Inner Healing and Deliverance
I. Opening Prayer (1 Peter 5:10, Psalm 107:20)
Let's begin our time in prayer, asking God to restore, establish, and heal us by His power. "And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast." (1 Peter 5:10). "He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction." (Psalm 107:20)
II. Overview of Inner Healing and Deliverance (Luke 4:18-19)
We'll be exploring the biblical foundations of Christian deliverance and inner healing, following Jesus' model described in Luke 4:18-19: "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor."
III. Testimony (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
I'll share my personal story of finding hope and healing through Christ after loss. God comforts us in suffering so we can comfort others. "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
IV. Jesus' Commission (Isaiah 61:1-3)
Jesus commissioned all believers to continue His healing ministry as described in Isaiah 61:1-3: “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.”
V. Making Healing Accessible (James 5:13-16)
We'll learn simple, practical methods based on God's word, like James 5:13-16, to find freedom through prayer and anointing. Our goal is to make inner healing available to all who seek it.
VI. Overcoming Spiritual Warfare (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Spiritual warfare must be fought and won in the spiritual realm, through prayer, God's Word, faith, and the full armor described in Ephesians 6:10-18.
VII. Experiencing Emotional Wellbeing (John 10:10)
Through inner healing and deliverance, we can move beyond just coping to truly experiencing Jesus' promise of life "to the full" in John 10:10. Wholeness spiritually and emotionally is God's desire.
VIII. Conclusion & Discussion (Colossians 3:12-17)
Let's conclude by reminding ourselves of God’s truth from Colossians 3:12-17. We are chosen, forgiven, and loved by Christ. Let's continue pursuing healing together through Him.
Inner Healing & Deliverance for the Brokenhearted - Lesson 02
Lesson 02 - Inner Healing and Deliverance for the Brokenhearted
I. Opening Prayer
Let's begin by asking God to speak to us and reveal any areas needing emotional or spiritual healing.
II. Who is This Training For?
This training is for the brokenhearted - all of us who have faced rejection, depression, grief, and emotional wounds and need healing and freedom in Christ. "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners." (Isaiah 61:1)
III. Who are the Brokenhearted?
The brokenhearted refers to anyone at any point who has experienced sorrow, grief, or emotional trauma. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." (Matthew 5:4)
Victims of abuse, assault, violence
Those processing grief, depression, anxiety
People overcoming addictions, habits
Individuals with chronic health conditions
Those coping with trauma from accidents, disasters
Anyone experiencing emotional wounds or scars
IV. We All Need Healing
We all suffer wounds from abuse, disasters, tragedy and loss. These create deep scars in our souls requiring healing. "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." (Psalm 147:3)
V. Not Recognizing Our Need for Healing
Many don't realize they need healing. We try to cope through burying pain, distractions. But only temporary relief. "There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death." (Proverbs 14:12)
VI. How Unhealed Wounds Resurface
Unattended wounds resurface, used by Satan to cause further torment. "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy." (John 10:10)
Abuse - physical, verbal, sexual, domestic, ritualistic
Trauma from violence, war, disasters, accidents
Loss of loved ones through death, divorce, estrangement
Betrayal trauma from close relationships
Chronic health conditions
Long-term stress, exhaustion, burnout
VII. The Holy Spirit Reveals Our Wounds
The Holy Spirit reveals emotional wounds needing healing as we grow in Christ. "But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth." (John 16:13)
VIII. Jesus Provides Complete Healing
Only Jesus' power provides complete, profound healing - not just a bandaid. "He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed." (1 Peter 2:24)
IX. Indicators of Needed Inner Healing
Abuse, depression, anxiety, anger, PTSD, demonic encounters all point to needed inner healing. "He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness." (Matthew 10:1)
X. Closing Spiritual Entry Points
Unhealed wounds provide entry points for spiritual attacks. Inner healing closes those access points. "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith." (1 Peter 5:8-9)
XI. Jesus Restores Wholeness
Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted, set captives free and restore abundant life. (Luke 4:18-19, John 10:10)
Approaching Jesus as Friend and Father in Prayer - Lesson 03
Lesson 03 - Approaching Jesus as Friend and Father in Prayer
I. The Power of Persistence in Prayer
Jesus emphasizes the importance of persisting in prayer, even when it feels like our requests are going unanswered or we face resistance. In the parable found in Luke 11:5-8, Jesus describes a friend shamelessly asking for help at midnight, despite the inconvenience of the timing and initial refusal. The friend persists until his request is finally granted. Jesus tells us to approach Him with this same persistence and shameless asking. We are to continue knocking, seeking, asking, even when we don't see immediate results. Our timing is not God's timing. While He may not open the door when we expect, we can have confidence that if we persist, the door will open.
II. Approaching Jesus as a Friend
Jesus calls us to build an intimate relationship with Him, where we openly and honestly share all our needs, desires, and concerns, just as we would with a close friend. In John 15:15, Jesus says "I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." We are invited into friendship with Christ, where we can freely confide in Him and bring our requests.
III. Continuing to Knock, Ask, Seek
Even when our prayers seem to go unanswered, we are called to persistently continue knocking, asking, and seeking, refusing to give up. Galatians 6:9 reminds us "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." God promises we will reap a harvest if we persevere and do not lose heart. His timing is perfect. Our job is to patiently, expectantly keep praying.
IV. Focusing Our Minds on the Good
A key part of our spiritual growth is training our minds to dwell on what is excellent - things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. As Philippians 4:8 encourages "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things." When our minds are set on what is good, we will more readily discern God's gifts versus the enemy's counterfeits.
V. Overcoming Through Prayer and Faith
Through persistent prayer and faith, we can find freedom from spiritual strongholds and oppression. James 4:7 instructs "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." Bringing issues to God in consistent prayer while resisting the devil is key to victory.
VI. A Transformative Journey
Drawing close to Jesus as our friend and father transforms us, strengthening our faith and giving continual revelation of God's love. As John 17:3 declares, "Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." This knowing of God through Christ is eternal life.
Effective Prayer Strategies - Lesson 04
Lesson 04 - Effective Prayer Strategies
I. Approaching Jesus as Friend
Jesus invites us into an intimate, close friendship (John 15:15)
We can come to Jesus as we would a trusted friend, being completely honest about our struggles, faults, sins, burdens, worries, and fears (Psalm 62:8, Proverbs 17:17, James 5:16)
As our friend, Jesus understands us fully, cares about our lives, and wants the best for us (Hebrews 4:15-16)
Being authentic and vulnerable with Jesus as a friend leads to freedom, healing, wisdom, and restoration (John 8:31-32, Proverbs 27:9, James 1:5)
II. Approaching Jesus as Father
In the Lord's Prayer, Jesus provides a model for approaching God as a loving, caring Father (Matthew 6:9-13)
We address God intimately as "Our Father" just as Jesus taught (Matthew 6:9)
A good father selflessly provides for his children's needs - "Give us this day our daily bread" (Matthew 6:11)
A good father forgives wrongs and flaws in his children - "Forgive us our debts" (Matthew 6:12)
A good father protects his children from harm - "Deliver us from evil" (Matthew 6:13)
III. Key Aspects of the Lord's Prayer
Daily bread = expressing childlike dependence on God to supply our every need (Matthew 6:11, Philippians 4:19, Psalm 23:1)
Forgiveness = humbly asking for grace, repenting of sin, and extending forgiveness to others (Matthew 6:12, Matthew 18:21-22, Colossians 3:13)
Guidance/deliverance = relying on God's strength for rescue and protection (Matthew 6:13, Psalm 32:7, Psalm 23:4, Psalm 91:14-16)
IV. Applying These Prayer Strategies
Come persistently to God for mercy and help (Luke 18:1-8, Romans 12:12)
Seek God's will, wisdom, guidance in all things (Matthew 7:7-8, James 1:5, Proverbs 3:5-6)
Ask God to supply needs, give direction, and protect from spiritual forces (Matthew 7:7-8, John 14:13-14, Psalm 23:1, 4)
Have confidence in God's constant love and care as the perfect Father (1 John 3:1, Psalm 103:13, Isaiah 49:15-16)
Through persistent, childlike, dependent prayer to God as Father and transparent friendship with Jesus, we can be healed, delivered, restored, and guided by God's merciful hand (Luke 18:1-8, Hebrews 11:6, Jeremiah 33:3)
Discerning and Confirming Freedom - Lesson 05
Lesson 05 - Discerning and Confirming Freedom; Three Manifestations of Jesus' Healing Power
I. Importance of Hearing God's Voice
It is imperative that we grasp, discern, and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit in this inner healing process. The Holy Spirit is our guide. (John 16:13)
When we bring an issue before Jesus, we need to listen for the Holy Spirit's confirmation that the area has been healed and the legal right of the enemy severed. (Matthew 12:29)
Our goal is to be able to distinguish what the Holy Spirit is communicating when we ask Him to affirm that Jesus has restored and healed the issue. (John 14:26)
II. How Jesus Manifests Healing
In alignment with John 10:27 and 1 Kings 19:12, Jesus may speak directly to us, replacing harmful lies and untruths with His healing truth. We may hear Him say "It is finished" or "I love you".
He may also communicate healing through visions and encounters, like we see in the biblical accounts of Zachariah and Daniel. We revisit past traumas and experience Jesus' comfort. (Luke 1:8-23)
As in Matthew 8:5-13 with the centurion, we can trust in faith that Jesus' authoritative Word extends peace and healing power over afflictions.
III. Confirming Complete Healing
After identifying an issue and bringing it to Jesus, we need to revisit the memory to confirm that it has been fully restored by the Lord. (2 Timothy 2:13)
Jesus not only heals the wounds, but removes associated pain. We should sense His peace. (Isaiah 53:5)
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's leading and discern how Jesus is manifesting healing. It may be through speaking, visions, or only a feeling of His peace. (Romans 8:6)
IV. Ongoing Process and Dependence
This is an ongoing journey of admitting imperfection and depending on Jesus for forgiveness, healing, and sanctification. (Galatians 5:16-26)
Ask the Holy Spirit to help forgive others, reveal God's will, and say no to evil influences. (Matthew 6:14)
Knock persistently in prayer until the door is opened; keep seeking and asking Jesus for healing. (Matthew 7:7-8)
Confirming and discerning healing is a process of pursuing intimacy with Jesus while depending on the Holy Spirit's guidance. Keep drawing near to God for wholeness. (James 4:8)
Steps to Inner Healing and Deliverance - Lesson 06
Lesson 06 - Steps to Inner Healing and Deliverance
I. Turning to Jesus
When facing any problem or issue, we are called first and foremost to turn to Jesus in persistent prayer as both friend and father. We approach Him boldly and shamelessly, asking for His healing touch. "Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you." (Luke 11:9)
II. Separating from Demonic Spirits
As a first step, we can verbalize our authority in Christ to separate our spirit from any demonic oppression or attacks. Hebrews 4:12 says God's word divides soul and spirit. We declare: "In the name and authority of Jesus, I separate soul and spirit and command any evil spirits to detach and leave in Jesus' name." This creates needed space for the Lord to speak and minister.
III. Walking in Forgiveness
Where emotional wounds are connected to offense, forgiveness is key. We voice forgiveness out loud, even if just by faith initially. "Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you." (Colossians 3:13) As needed, we ask the Spirit to reveal any residual areas He wants to address, fully opening to His restorative work.
IV. Petitioning Jesus for Inner Healing
We directly ask Jesus to heal damaged areas of our soul/emotions. "If you have faith when you pray, you will be given whatever you ask for." (Matthew 21:22) We trust He hears and responds according to His perfect will.
V. Listening for Jesus' Confirmation
We wait patiently in prayer for some form of confirmation that healing has occurred. Jesus often communicates directly to our spirit, through an inner vision/encounter, or by supernaturally bringing peace. "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 2:5) We tune to His Spirit's voice.
VI. Sealing the Healing Through Declaration
Mirroring the persistent friend parable, we "knock" by boldly declaring in Jesus' authority that this door of pain now closes, and we move forward in freedom. "Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (John 14:13) We stand on His promises.
VII. Offering God Thanksgiving and Praise
With joy, we offer heartfelt thanks to Jesus for His healing work and praise to God for His mercy and love. "Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!" (Psalm 100:4) Gratitude and worship deepen our connection with Him.
Additional Steps When Feeling Stuck - Lesson 07
Lesson 07 - Additional Steps When Feeling Stuck
I. Turning to Jesus When Progress Stalls
If we hit obstacles in achieving inner healing, we persist in boldly approaching Jesus. Though the path may seem blocked, we continue shamelessly knocking, asking, seeking. "Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." (Hebrews 4:16)
II. Breaking the Enemy's Grip through Declaration
When feeling stuck, we can verbally break free from demonic oppression using the sword of the Spirit. "Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." (Ephesians 6:17) We declare: "In Jesus' name, I break the enemy’s grip over my spiritual ears. Demons detach and depart and leave me alone now in Jesus’ name."
III. Asking Jesus to Reconfirm the Healing
Persisting in prayer, we ask Jesus again to bring assurance that healing has occurred and to give confirmation. "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." (James 1:5) We trust He will make it known.
IV. Calling on God's Angelic Help
If still struggling, we can request God's angelic assistance against demonic resistance, as He sent angels to help Daniel hear His voice. "But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia." (Daniel 10:13)
V. Persisting Patiently in Prayer
We continue knocking persistently at the door of Jesus' mercy in continual prayer, not losing heart but expecting breakthrough in God's timing. "Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up." (Luke 18:1) We trust His promises.
VI. Standing Firm in Faith and Jesus' Authority
Throughout this process, we stand firm in faith in Christ's power and the authority He has given us over evil spirits. "The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." (1 John 4:4) Victory is assured as we call upon His name.
VII. Jesus' Unending Hope and Power
We can have unshakeable confidence that with Jesus there is always hope, regardless of our struggle. His resurrection power brings freedom and restoration. "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." (1 John 5:4)
Testimony 01: Finding Peace Amidst Pain
Finding Peace Amidst Pain: Jesus' Swift Response to Mike's Cry
In this powerful testimony, we delve into the story of Mike, who bravely shared his painful past and the wounds inflicted by his father. It is a story of emotional absence, abuse, and betrayal that left Mike questioning his faith. We see how the hypocritical behavior of his father in the church further deepened his wounds and caused significant damage to his perception of Christianity. But amidst this darkness, Jesus shines as the ultimate source of healing and restoration.
The Bible tells us in Philippians 4:7 that Jesus offers us His peace, a peace that surpasses all understanding. This peace is precisely what Mike experienced when Jesus came through for him. As he poured out his heart, Jesus embraced him with a confirmation of a "big hug." In that moment, Mike felt the comforting arms of Jesus enveloping him, bringing solace to his wounded soul. This powerful encounter reminded Mike of the nearness of Jesus, as described in Psalm 34:17-18, where it says that the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
But Jesus did not stop there. He went beyond the embrace to provide guidance and direction to Mike. Just as in Isaiah 41:10, where the Lord speaks and says, "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you," Jesus spoke directly to Mike's heart. He instructed Mike to give the issue to Him, assuring him that he no longer needed to carry the burden alone. This divine direction brought clarity and peace to Mike's tumultuous journey.
Throughout this lesson, we witness how Jesus shows up in different ways for Mike. The swiftness of His response is a testament to His faithfulness, as stated in Psalm 107:20, which tells us that He sent forth His word and healed them. Jesus does not delay in bringing healing and restoration. He meets us where we are, just as He did with Mike. His love is relentless, His compassion unwavering.
As we reflect on Mike's story, we are reminded of the invitation extended to us by Jesus Himself in Matthew 11:28-30. He invites us to come to Him with our burdens, promising rest and comfort. No matter the depth of our wounds, Jesus is ready and willing to heal us. We only need to call upon His name and put our faith into action, just as Mike did.
In this lesson, we witness the power of forgiveness as well. Mike took a courageous step in forgiving his father, not only for his own sake but also by faith. In James 4:7, we are encouraged to resist the enemy, and by forgiving his father, Mike released any hold that the enemy may have had over him. This act of faith unleashed the healing power of Jesus in his life, breaking the chains of guilt and shame.
Let us learn from Mike's story and expect Jesus to show up swiftly in our lives. Just as He brought confirmation and healing to Mike, He stands ready to do the same for each of us. Let us invite Him into our pain, our struggles, and our brokenness. With Jesus, there is no wound too deep, no hurt too overwhelming. His love is the balm that soothes, His presence the light that dispels darkness.
May we, like Mike, experience the profound touch of Jesus, allowing His healing power to restore our hearts and lead us to a place of wholeness. Let us trust in the promises of Scripture, knowing that Jesus is faithful and true. In Him, we find comfort, direction, confirmation, and restoration. Jesus is the answer to our deepest needs, and when we call upon His name, He will respond swiftly, bringing healing to our wounded souls.
Testimony 02: How Jesus Restored a Shattered Heart
Vanessa's Journey: How Jesus Restored One Woman's Shattered Heart
Vanessa awakened one day feeling utterly worthless after the end of her 16-year marriage. Her husband Miguel's cruel words - that she and the family were "not worth fighting for" - echoed relentlessly in her mind (Luke 18:7-8). His rejection left her identity and purpose in tatters (Isaiah 61:7).
Though over a year had passed since their separation, Vanessa still felt the raw pain of abandonment (Psalm 147:3). She described how Miguel's verbal assaults deeply wounded her soul, leaving her devastated and empty (Psalm 143:4). Carrying this grief alone for so long had weighed her spirit down (Matthew 11:28).
Desperate for relief, Vanessa accepted the minister's invitation to surrender her hurt to Jesus (Matthew 11:28). She divided soul from spirit, granting Christ access to her inner anguish (Hebrews 4:12). Though resistant at first, Vanessa chose to forgive Miguel by faith, despite the bitterness lodged within (Matthew 6:14-15).
As she persisted in prayer, Jesus drew intimately near (James 4:8). He spoke tender words of comfort, assuring Vanessa she was loved and would be okay (John 14:27). His living presence overwhelmed her pain with unspeakable peace (Philippians 4:7). Christ knew her grief having carried it to the cross (Isaiah 53:4). Now He gently lifted the burden from her shoulders (Matthew 11:28-30).
The Lord counseled Vanessa's heart, bringing light to the desolate places (Psalm 73:24). She wept as Jesus, the Wonderful Counselor, bathed her deepest wounds with compassion (Isaiah 61:1-3). He who calls the broken ended her loneliness (Psalm 34:18). Renewed by His love, hope flickered back to life (Romans 15:13).
Vanessa emerged renewed, with joy and resilience for the future (Psalm 30:11-12). Her story stands as a testament to Jesus' faithfulness (2 Timothy 2:13). Though her heart was shattered, He proved there was no hurt too heavy for Him to heal (Isaiah 61:1). When we invite Him into our pain, Christ restores what's been destroyed (Joel 2:25).
Jesus brought two powerful confirmations of His desire to restore Vanessa:
First, Jesus spoke tender words of comfort, personally assuring Vanessa she was loved and would be okay. His voice calmed her heart's anxieties.
Second, Jesus’ living presence brought supernatural peace to overwhelm her pain. As the Prince of Peace, He took her suffering and exchanged it for wholeness. Vanessa tangibly felt the weight lift as Jesus bore her grief to the cross.
Through speaking truth and manifesting His peace, Jesus confirmed His commitment to heal Vanessa. His intimate care touched the deepest hurts in her soul. She encountered the compassion of Christ restoring her completely.
Testimony 03: A Stroke Survivor's Free from Fear
A Stroke Survivor's Free from Fear | Daniels story of freedom
In this powerful testimony, we see Pastor Timothy compassionately walk Daniel through inner healing for the intense fear he felt after his debilitating stroke. Daniel had been experiencing spiritual attacks on his mind, filling him with anxiety about the future. As Ephesians 6:12 reminds us, "We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." But Pastor Timothy knew Jesus was greater and could set Daniel free.
Through a simple yet powerful process, Pastor Timothy helped Daniel invite Jesus into that painful memory. He had Daniel first identify the root issue - the life-changing stroke that happened a couple years prior. That event had ushered in tremendous fear and uncertainty over Daniel's future. As Proverbs 12:25 (NLT) says, "Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up." Then Pastor Timothy guided Daniel to forgive anyone he needed to related to that memory, which included his friend Tony who had taken Daniel to the place where the stroke occurred. As Colossians 3:13 exhorts, "Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you." Releasing unforgiveness removed hindrances between Daniel and God.
Pastor Timothy then coached Daniel to give Jesus full permission to meet him in that traumatic memory and heal it. As James 4:8 instructs, "Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you." As Daniel prayed and gave Jesus access, the Lord graciously responded. Jesus spoke gently to Daniel, assuring him that he had been believing the enemy's lies that he was depressed and mentally ill. As John 8:44 reveals, "The devil...was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language." The Lord encouraged Daniel to counter those lies by filling his mind with scripture instead. As Psalm 119:11 promises, "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." As Daniel did this, it would unlock greater freedom.
Jesus also gave Daniel direct confirmation that he was healing this painful memory. He assured Daniel he would soon walk in total freedom from the fear and oppression. The Lord brought supernatural peace to Daniel, disarming the power of the past trauma. As Isaiah 26:3 declares, "You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." Where there had been anxiety and dread, Jesus breathed comfort and hope.
Daniel approached this process with childlike faith, eagerly trusting in Jesus' power to heal him. As Matthew 18:4 says, "Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Through Pastor Timothy's compassionate guidance, Daniel received deep inner healing. Most importantly, this encounter developed greater intimacy between Daniel and Christ. They conversed as close friends, with Daniel sharing vulnerably and Jesus responding tenderly. As John 15:15 reminds us, "I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." As Daniel persisted in pursuing Jesus' heart, the Lord shared His own - a beautiful picture of what awaits each of us.
Jesus' Twofold Confirmations: Dispelling Lies Through Voice and Peace
In His compassion, Jesus spoke tenderly to Daniel, countering the lies of the enemy. The Lord revealed that Daniel had been believing the falsehoods the devil had been speaking over him - that he was depressed, mentally ill, and beyond hope. Jesus encouraged Daniel not to accept those destructive narratives but instead immerse himself in God's word. As Daniel filled his mind with scripture, it would unlock greater freedom in his life. The Lord then brought two powerful confirmations to anchor this truth in Daniel's heart.
Jesus spoke to Daniel with a still, small voice. As John 10:27 says, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." Daniel was able to hear the gentle voice of the Lord assuring him that he had been believing the enemy's lies. Jesus brought comforting words directly to Daniel's spirit.
Jesus brought supernatural peace and healing to Daniel's painful memory. As Isaiah 26:3 promises, "You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." Where Daniel had felt anxiety and fear about the future after his stroke, Jesus breathed comfort and hope into that memory. The Lord gave the tangible gift of peace, confirming His healing power.
In summary, through a discernible inner voice and supernatural peace, Jesus reinforced His personal care for Daniel. The Savior's tenderness dispelled the darkness of the enemy's lies.
Testimony 04: Healing the Wounds of Betrayal
Healing the Wounds of Betrayal: Makayla's Testimony of Forgiveness
Makayla had been struggling deeply to fully forgive her children’s father for things he had done that wounded her heart, as bitterness can take root according to Hebrews 12:15. Even though she wanted to forgive, as Christ commands us in Matthew 6:14-15, she found it very difficult. The pain was still fresh with her baby being less than two years old.
Recently, a painful memory had resurfaced for Makayla about a time she went to see her ex while he was dealing with some legal troubles. She ended up seeing another girl at the hotel who she knew he used to be involved with. This brought up intense feelings of betrayal, frustration and anger. It was further confirmation of his repeated hurtful actions.
Makayla realized these emotions meant she still harbored unforgiveness in her heart. She wanted healing, but wasn’t sure how to fully let it go and walk in freedom. She booked a Christian counseling session with Pastor Timothy, who gently guided her through an inner healing process according to Isaiah 61:1-3.
Pastor Timothy encouraged Makayla to bring this issue directly to Jesus, as we are told to cast all our cares on Him in 1 Peter 5:7. He led her through some simple steps:
First, she called upon the Lord Jesus’ name and authority as we are instructed in John 14:13. Then she divided her soul and spirit before Christ through the power of the Word in Hebrews 4:12. Next, Makayla invited Jesus to come heal and restore this wounded place within her, trusting His promise in Psalm 147:3.
Though it was difficult, she forgave her ex by faith, asking the Lord to help her according to Philippians 4:13. Lastly, Makayla asked Jesus to speak to her heart, confident that His sheep hear His voice as John 10:27 declares. She sensed His peace and comfort touching the hurt and pain from this memory.
Makayla testified that she could go back and relive the memory without feeling overwhelmed anymore. The negative emotions had lifted according to Philippians 4:6-7. She felt the Lord had brought victory and taken away that pain, praising Him for His healing power in Isaiah 53:5.
Makayla commanded the spirits behind the unforgiveness to leave in Jesus’ all-powerful name as Luke 10:19 reminds us. They fled immediately. She was thankful for the Lord's gentle restoration of her broken heart through His endless compassion. Makayla realized she could walk through this simple but freeing process on her own whenever hurtful memories surfaced again, according to 1 John 1:9.
Knocking in Faith: Jesus' Powerful Confirmations in Makayla's Healing
Jesus brought two powerful confirmations to Makayla as she persistently sought His healing for her broken heart.
This is how Christ showed up to restore Makayla in two impactful ways, just as He promises when we knock persistently according to Luke 11:9:
First, as Makayla surrendered her pain to the Savior a second time, calling upon Jesus' name in faith (Hebrews 11:1), His supernatural peace began to surround her according to Philippians 4:7. Though at first she did not sense the Lord's presence, Makayla continued to seek Him shamelessly as Scripture urges in Hebrews 11:6.
Second, upon inviting Jesus into the hurt once more, Makayla realized the previous pain associated with this memory was now completely gone, as the Great Physician promises in Isaiah 53:5. The Wonderful Counselor had fought this battle for her and taken away the sting according to 1 Corinthians 15:57.
Makayla left this encounter with renewed hope and freedom, ready to walk forward unhindered by the weight of the past. She would continue knocking in faith, knowing Jesus her Friend would always meet her in the pain and heal every broken place.

Testimony 06: Breaking Chains of Spiritual Spouse
Breaking Chains of Spiritual Spouse: Lynn's Journey to Freedom
In this powerful testimony, Lynn shares her journey of breaking free from a family tradition of ancestral worship and the struggles she faced with a spirit spouse. With the help of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Timothy walked her through the process, encouraging her to come to Jesus as a friend and father.
Acknowledging the need for forgiveness towards her parents who followed the cultural practice in ignorance, Lynn recognized that this practice was a deception. Following the teachings of Jesus in Matthew 6:14-15, she sought to release the anger and resentment she harbored within her heart through forgiveness.
Pastor Timothy helped Lynn embrace Jesus as a friend and a compassionate father, as depicted in John 15:15 and 1 John 3:1. Understanding that her feelings of anger needed to be addressed, the Holy Spirit revealed this to Lynn. Following the wisdom of Ephesians 4:26-27, she confronted these emotions in the presence of Jesus, seeking His healing touch.
As Lynn opened her heart to Jesus, she found peace and healing, experiencing the truth of Philippians 4:7, where it says that God's peace surpasses all understanding. Surrendering to Jesus as her loving friend and heavenly Father, she allowed Him to minister to her wounded heart, just as promised in Psalm 147:3.
Throughout the inner healing session, guided by the Holy Spirit, Pastor Timothy and Lynn addressed the enemy's strongholds. Relying on the power of Jesus Christ as depicted in 2 Corinthians 10:4, they sought to demolish these strongholds with divine authority. Lynn embraced the truth of James 4:7, resisting the devil, and drawing near to God, knowing that He would bring freedom.
With Pastor Timothy's loving guidance, Lynn was reminded of the words of 1 Peter 5:7, casting all her anxieties on Jesus because He cares for her. Through this process, she found strength in Jesus as her fortress and refuge, as promised in Psalm 18:2.
As Lynn walked through the journey of inner healing, she discovered that spiritual warfare could be a continuous battle, as stated in 1 Peter 5:8. But with unwavering faith in Jesus as her deliverer, she remained steadfast, knowing that through Him, she would find victory and freedom, just as proclaimed in Galatians 5:1.
With heartfelt gratitude, Lynn praised the Lord for His transformative work in her life. Remembering Psalm 103:2-4, she thanked Him for forgiving her sins, healing her wounds, and crowning her with love and compassion.
Through this inspiring testimony, Lynn's journey stands as a testament to the power of inner healing, forgiveness, and the transformative work of Jesus Christ in setting individuals free from the burdens of the past. Her experience serves as an inspiration to others, reminding them that through faith in Jesus, they too can find healing, freedom, and peace by coming to Him as a friend and a loving Father.
Jesus brought two powerful confirmations to Lynn:
Lynn pleaded for Jesus to minister to her and bring peace that surpasses understanding (lines 61-64).
She asked for confirmation in her heart that she had been healed (lines 65-68).
After rebuking the demons in Jesus' name, Lynn reported feeling peace (lines 87-88).
The pastor affirmed that the purpose of the inner healing was accomplished, even if only for a moment, when they felt Jesus' peace and the blockage lifted (lines 88-95).
So it seems Jesus showed up for Lynn by bringing supernatural peace and taking away her pain, like the centurion who believed his servant would be healed according to Jesus' word. This gave Lynn confirmation that Jesus had done a work of healing and deliverance in her life.
Testimony 07: Tormented by Demons, Set Free by Jesus: Ash's Journey to Inner Healing
Tormented by Demons, Set Free by Jesus: Ash's Journey to Inner Healing
In this powerful testimony, Ash shares vulnerably about the years of spiritual torment she has endured. It all started about 5 years ago when she slipped on ice and felt a demonic presence enter her body. This opened up a doorway for the demonic, ushering in deep fear, heaviness and turmoil that debilitated her.
Desperate for freedom, Ash reached out over the past 3-4 years to various pastors and deliverance ministers for help. But breakthrough remained out of reach. Like the persistent friend in Jesus' parable, she kept knocking shamelessly on heaven's door, waiting for Jesus to finally open it.
Finally, in this miraculous encounter, Pastor Timothy gently walked Ash back to the source memory of her pain. As she revisited that scene, Pastor Timothy guided her to call upon Jesus. Right there, Jesus met Ash in her brokenness and fear. Piece by piece, he ministered healing to the wounded places in her heart. The faithful Shepherd spoke tenderly to His lamb, instructing her to let go of the past. Ash chose to release it and forgive herself. In the end, she walked away with joy, knowing that Jesus cared for her with an everlasting love.
This is a powerful story of patience, persistence and healing. Despite years of torment and attack, Ash never gave up on Jesus. And in His perfect timing, He heard her cries and set her free. Jesus turned the ashes of her past into beauty. What an incredible testimony of His great redeeming love!
Jesus showed up and brought confirmation of healing to Ash in this testimony:
Jesus spoke tenderly to Ash, reassuring her of His unending love. He communicated truth to counter the lies and accusations she had believed, telling her "I know the mold that no one can take you from my hands."
Ash received a vision of Jesus ministering to her, turning each hair on her head. This symbolic encounter conveyed His intimate care and attention over every detail of her life.
As Ash went back to the painful memory, Jesus brought His peace to that moment, confirming His healing power. The turmoil she had previously felt was replaced with calm as Jesus told her to "let it go."
