Who me? Yes, you.
Everyone, to some degree, has a broken heart. We live in a broken world, with broken people, who do not know how to love others properly. We have all, to some extent, experienced the pain that comes when someone, who should have loved us, did not.
Many people carry a broken heart and do not know it. This is mainly because many generations have lost the ability to understand heartache and its affect on their lives. They have never had the opportunity to see that, through the course of their life, they have had relationships and experiences that have pierced them and that they are still affecting them today. This is especially true if proper healing and resolution to the heart did not take place. In addition, millions of people are in denial that they even have a broken heart. This keeps them blinded to the problem and locked in their bondage indefinitely.
We cannot begin to address the work of rejection effectively if we do not address the key target of its work: the broken heart. If we want to revolutionize our lives, we must address the healing that is needed in every human heart. When Jesus began His ministry, His first and primary focus was on dealing with the heart of mankind, especially bringing life and healing to the broken heart.
Luke 4:18a The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because . . . He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted . . .
Why focus so much on the heart? It is because true life flows from the heart. It is the innermost place of desire; the relationship center that houses our deepest treasures and passions. The heart carries the work of what occurs in our spirit and soul. All of life flows from the heart. If damage to the heart has not been dealt with, you can expect bondage to flourish. Millions of people all around the world are seeking to overcome and change without addressing their broken hearts. No wonder it seems that so many wander in circles in their desperate search for change. Dealing with the issues of the heart cannot be bypassed if change is truly sought after.
The broken heart is the number one place the enemy uses to break in and steal our vitality. Many wonder how Satan can invade people’s lives so readily, yet we often fail to realize that Satan and his evil spirits gain access where our hearts have been broken. Satan brings a spirit of rejection to fill the broken heart by inserting bondage where love, acceptance and security from Father God belong. The enemy’s desire is to fill this space and pollute our well- being with rejection-based thinking. Part of defeating him is mending the brokenness found in our hearts.
Question: Why are so many struggling to recognize the broken areas of their heart?
