God Is Healing Hidden Trauma


God is healing Hidden Trauma in His Messengers!

 

 

When you are called to birth something that can only glorify God, you may endure a time of barrenness and provocation from your adversary. You might suffer accusations from friends, family, and even religious leaders in your life. The torment of seeming fruitlessness can press you into abandoning the desire for the earthly blessing. But it is never the desire of the Lord for you to lose faith.

In 1 Samuel 1, the mother of the prophet Samuel helps us see the struggle of barrenness and the process of birthing something in which only God could get the credit. When Hannah couldn’t conceive in the natural, she became a lightning rod for God’s glory.

 

 

 

“But to Hannah, he gave a double portion because he loved her though the LORD had closed her womb, her rival would provoke her and taunt her severely. And this went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the LORD, her rival taunted her until she wept and would not eat” (1 Samuel 1:5-7).

 

Hannah’s husband could not comfort her with earthly love or a double-portion blessing.

Seasons that lack visible fruit will stretch you. They will cause you to pray, fast, and seek the Lord, casting out things not of eternal value. Even a double-portion temporal blessing will not comfort your aching heart. This frustration becomes a groaning for justice on the earth. This is a good thing (Romans 8:26). 

 

God is at work, removing the deep wounds suffered from being misunderstood, rejected, accused, and abandoned during the season of seeming barrenness. He is ministering deeply to His children and shining the light of His glory, exposing the hidden pain and delivering those dear to His heart! Your sorrow and pain do not go unseen. 

 

The Lord is saying, “I am the God who sees. I am the God who hears the intense petitions within your heart! I see the pain and abuse you have walked through, my child. You have said in your heart, ‘I have forgiven them and moved on.’ This may be so, but I see the wounds that remain. Today is the day of your freedom! I am restoring your compassion for the lost, wounded, and sick, and reigniting your faith. Your time of birthing is near. Let me expose the scars and heal your wounds! My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Your season of barrenness has made you a lightning rod for my glory to be revealed and my power displayed through you. I will cause you, like Hannah of old, to birth forth my vision. From loss will bloom life more significant than yourself. From brokenness, healing will flow.”

 

Many have suffered through trials like those Hannah endured.

 

But the desire to remain pure before the Lord produced an inner longing and humble heart. Know this: the humble will be exalted. The Father is far more concerned with our godly character, love for others, and devotion to Him than our success before men. 

As you heal, you will see that the Lord is stretching out your tent pegs! His plans for you are to mature and not harm you. The tension has increased your capacity to rightly handle His promise. You will find yourself in His powerful grace receiving beauty for ashes. 

 

“Shout for joy, O barren woman, who bears no children; break forth into song and cry aloud, you who have never travailed; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the LORD. “Enlarge the site of your tent, stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not hold back. Lengthen your ropes and drive your stakes deep. For you will spread out to the right and left; your descendants will dispossess the nations and inhabit the desolate cities.” – Isaiah 54:1–3

 

The season of barrenness made you a lightning rod for God’s glory! 

God, not the enemy, had closed Hannah’s womb. God was the One she had to pursue; the throne was where her appeal was made. So it has been with many who are passionate about awakening, revival, and a genuine move of God. 

He has been delivering us from needing the approval of man, purifying our desires, and calling His people higher.

He has been preparing His people, like Hannah, to birth something that would change the nation and glorify Him alone. 

Prayers are not pretty or peaceful when we are passionate for God to do something beyond our control. Hannah’s prayers were not religious, but they were pure. She was not drunk with wine but intoxicated with longing. Her cries were for the gaze of the Lord, not her husband, not the priest, and not her rival! Her intercessions were for God’s leadership and defense and a gift she could consecrate and dedicate to Him alone! (1 Samuel 1:12–16, Romans 8:26.) 

Hannah’s barrenness produced a groaning that caused heaven to stop and respond.

 

In her weakness, His might and power were evident. The Spirit of the Lord knew her heart and mind, and He moved from within her, even moving Eli the priest into agreement with her prayers.

 

The Lord is forming within His bride, through the stretching, groaning, and purification process of prayer and fasting, more than she could ever ask, think, or imagine. He caused Hannah to cry out for a child who would restore a defiled priesthood. He has formed within His global bride the desire to birth an undefiled movement that will usher in His return.

We have been marked by God to birth something greater than ourselves.

 

The season of barrenness has been working in us, preparing our character and pressing us into the place of deep intimacy. Our gaze has been set on the Bridegroom King! Beloved, He has seen your pain and is moving to heal the trauma of your barrenness. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5)! 

 


Read Permission to Burn, get back on the mountain God gave you, and take your place in setting this world on fire with love for Jesus in your generation.

DESPERATE

deperate in prayer

 

Often when we are desperate and weak, we call on someone whom we consider a prayer warrior to say ” I need you to pray for me!” Then we pour out our frustration and aching hearts before them.

 

Desperation is beautiful to the Lord and He loves when we are vulnerable enough to ask for prayer. He loves when we bear one another’s burdens” (Galatians 6:2) He loves when we acknowledge our weakness, for in doing so He can be our strength! But, often in our weakness, we run to other people before we go “Boldly to the Throne of Grace” for ourselves. (See Hebrews 4:16) We often feel too weak, weary, ashamed, or just don’t know how to pray about certain situations. He loves when we come to Him and to others  bold, broken and admittedly not having eloquent words. It is a beautiful thing when someone lifts that burden before the Lord for us! But, there is One who will pray not just for us, but with us and through us!  He will also work deep inner healing in us as He prays, but we must let Him!

“But if we hope for what we do not yet see, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:25-27

The Power of His Intercession

Did you see that? Did you catch the power of HIS intercession! He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God! He is God and of course He knows the very mind of God!  The Spirit of God  knows exactly how to pray His perfect will in our lives! Those deep groanings can be embarrassing to our dignity, but they are powerful, perfect, and mightly productive.

I mean really, what’s more vulnerable than spilling your deepest weaknesses out before a friend? Why not go first boldly to The Friend who sticks closer than a brother (Prov.18:24b); to The Friend who has  laid down His life that we might be able to run to Him in times like these? (see John 15:19)

He is welcoming us to bring all of our broken desperation to Him first- and in private!  You may  hear groanings coming out of the depths of your being. That is good! You are hearing HIM praying for you, with you, and through you the very heart and will of The Heavenly Father! The greatest religious tragedy of our day is that we don’t know how to pray. We have heard it taught that tongues of intercession have ceased! This is a lie from the pit of Hell! Satan is terrified of you groaning with Jesus in intercession for your life and the lives of others! If you do pray Satan wants you to try to make it eloquent, dignified and  therefore powerless. He wants you to leave your prayer time feeling as though God didn’t listen or that you don’t know how to pray anyway.  He knows that Jesus, The Great Intercessor, is releasing heaven and earth shaking groanings for us before the Throne of God and we are invited to join in! That enemy of God doesn’t want us to know that we can come boldly before the Throne of Grace  by the blood of Jesus to make intercession with Him!  In doing this we are pulling God’s perfect will in heaven into the earth (Matt. 6:10)! We are taking our rightful inherited place of dominion!  Satan knows that once the sons and daughters of God grasp this key the kingdom of darkness is done!

Let your Guts Groan

I challenge you today to make a ‘war room’ in an ‘inner room’ of your house; where you can go and just let your guts groan with the Lord daily. You will find less and less desperation to need others to pray for you and more and more the longing to pray with The Spirit of God Himself! Your strength will rise and you will soar with Him in heavenly places! (See Ephesians 2:6)  You will know more and more your identity as HIS child,  because you are communing with God before His very Thone daily! This will be your ‘daily bread’ or substance for life!  You will be desperate, hungry, and longing for Him!

Give it at least 20 minutes a day to begin with. Eventually,  you will find yourself wanting for more time in that secret place.  Resist every thought of  distraction. Turn off your phone and rebuke feelings of embarrassment or doubt. These feelings and thoughts often come  in these first 15-20 minutes, they are just the enemy’s lies and his attempt to try to get you to give up or get distracted. Don’t listen to a liar.  Listen to the voice of Truth, His voice,  break in!

 

Pray this, Father, I am desperate fill me to overflow from the inside out! Baptize me with more that just  water, but with Holy Spirit and Fire according to Matthew 3:11; pray for me and though me according to Romans 8:26! I am desperate for You!

Now, let Him be God! Be a doer of the Word not a hearer only!

Let me know how you are growing in intimacy with God! Share this post to help others!

Blessings

Tammie!
