Renunciations and Affirmations for Lesson 16
Mending the Broken Heart: Head to Heart Guide
Renounce any agreements with untruth; believe Jesus’ truth as your new way of life. (John 14:6)
Cleanse your wounds of lies. The enemy uses trauma to sow strongholds of hurt and loss built upon lies. Remember: Some wounds need to be washed repeatedly to get infection out. Keep at it!
1) Renounce any false messages. Fall totally out of agreement with the enemy’s perspective on your life that he tried to feed you.
Yes, the world is unsafe, but your universe is incredibly secure: you have a God who loves you and who is always with you (it was a lie no One was there and no One cared) and He has promised to overturn every evil done to you and make it work for your ultimate good (we are not permanently damaged).
Choose to refuse to carry shame and blame over anything that you have put under the Blood. Break any inner vows you may have made.
2) Seek to break the grip of unbelief. Ask the Lord to forgive any unbelief you may have over the truths from His Word you need to believe (especially Romans 8:28) and confess the Truth until you actually begin to believe it from the heart. Leave no room for self-pity—believe His promises!
It is time to bring the hammer of His Word down on the trauma. Mending the broken heart inside us requires learning how to become tough minded where eternal truth is concerned.
Father, You have given me this promise of total redemption so it must be true; You have commanded me to forgive everyone so that must be what needs to happen for my life to be healed and restored. I choose by an act of my will to forgive the people in my past who have hurt me or wronged me, including myself. I release them from all my bitter judgments and give them to You for You to redeem. I also repent of my unbelief in Your Word and now choose by an act of my will to believe that the promise of Romans 8:28 is true for me—that greater good will come out of my past than all of the pain and loss the enemy sowed into it. I choose to believe in You!
