The process of healing is painful in any stage of life, but it must be done. Simply because the bondage in holding on to past ailments will hinder you from doing God’s will and fulfilling God’s purpose for your life. We must be fully aware that we are on a constant battleground and the fighting never ends in this life; however, our strife only confirms the purpose for deliverance and transition. Deliverance sets us free into a new life in Christ Jesus. Now is the time for us to stop tip-toeing around subjects in church, that effect young men and women, regarding issues of sexual perversion and abuse, suicide and depression. We cannot let tradition and a politically correct Sunday morning worship service allow us to continue sweeping these issues under the rug. These stagnant and complacent spirits will not hinder the anointing and blessings that God has in store for our lives. Before any outside transformation begins, we must learn how to empower each other to clean house first! Those who are under sexual oppression, struggling with emotional bondage, having relationship problems, scared of being alone, promiscuous, frustrated and angry need to know that for every bad experience in the past, there is a method to the madness.
Because I have experienced these areas of bondage, I can bear witness that dwelling in these strongholds is not the will of God. I can assure you that God wills for His daughters to triumph over every area in their lives where they have been victimized and empower others along the way. The Bible says,“…To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.”—Isaiah 61:3 The ashes that men put upon their head in the East in the time of sorrow made a grim tiara for the mourner; the Lord promises to put all these ashes away, and to substitute for them a glorious head dress—a diadem of beauty. In other words, mourning makes the face pale and withered, and so it takes away the beauty; but Jesus promises that he will soon come and reveal joy to the sorrowing soul, that the face shall fill up again: the eyes that were dull and cloudy shall sparkle again, and the countenance of the whole person shall be once more radiant with the beauty which sorrow had so grievously marred. This change is available for precious women who have been cast down in soul. There is even a visible beauty put upon them when they have found peace in Jesus Christ, and this beauty is far more lovely and striking, because it is evidently a beauty of the mind, a spiritual lustre, far superior to the surface of the flesh.
So as we go forth in battle against the spiritual wickedness that seeks to devour the lives of our youth, I ask for your prayers and support in empowering young women across the nation.
