The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:17-18 NIV
God is able to turn your pain into your weapon of victory if you hand the pain over to Him. Sometimes it may be hard to heal from the hurt, and pain we experience because we feel the best way to handle our negative experiences is to bury them, try to forget them, or not talk about them. This may seem like the easiest way to handle it, but these buried emotions of hurts can play a negative role in our thought process, emotions, decision making, and the way we view our lives and relationship with others. You cannot change the past, but you should not allow the negative experience or the hurt of the past to control your journey into a greater future. If you have an experience or memories in your life that is affecting you in a negative way, discuss it with those that you trust, don’t carry that burden alone. You should also talk to God about it and give all your troubles to Him. He alone can heal the inner hurts of your life and mend the brokenness of your heart. He promised to deliver the righteous from all their troubles.
The testimony below is from my book 21 Destiny Prayers. I pray it will be a blessing to you. I also pray that it will open your heart to receive the comfort and victory that God can give you in exchange for the brokenness, the pain, trauma, or the hurt you may be carrying in your heart. God is able to heal you, deliver you, and save you from all your troubles. He can turn the ashes of your life into beauty when you hand them over to Him.
Prayer: Cleasing your bloodline
Justice In The Courtroom of Heaven
Overcoming the horror of childhood abuse and incest started during my inner healing counseling sessions. God revealed Himself and gave me the victory and justice in the Courtroom of Heaven.
God did so many amazing things during my inner healing work. The Holy Spirit revealed to me a testimony that happened near the beginning of my Heavenly Courtroom experiences that is very dear to my heart.
I have been on a long journey to become whole, healed, and victorious in God. It has brought me into the lives of many people whose lives were also damaged by the horror of childhood abuse and incest. Many of whom like me have perpetrators that have died or escape consequences, and these victims never received justice or even a place to tell their story. Jesus said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” (Romans 12:19). I could not see where this was happening until I encountered the Courtrooms of Heaven.
I am a very visual person, so as Simi taught me how to go to the Courtrooms of Heaven, I saw all things unfolding, and I was there in the presence of God. On this occasion, we were taking incest, immorality, and sexual sin to Court. I saw the Courtroom come to order. I could feel the presence of God. I saw Jesus at my right hand and the Holy Spirit by my left side. The table across from Jesus was for the accuser. I could see endless courtrooms going on all around me. This was a very busy place. I felt very small as I read the words that go with presenting my case before God. I felt overwhelmed by the magnitude of what was happening, and Simi’s voice was a grounding presence in this experience. She taught me how to go to the Courtrooms on my own and for others, but at this moment, I was so grateful that God had brought her into my life for such a time as this.
As a young adult, I had decided that all the evil that had happened to me in my family stopped with me and this was my chance before God to declare this by repenting for all my generations on my Mother’s side and my Father’s side and for myself and future generations. I didn’t care where the sin entered, I just wanted to stand in for all of it and see it end with me. It was like a river of cleansing water washed over me when I read the verdict. “Not Guilty.” Even though I was a very young child, I always felt like it was somehow my fault, but when God said I was “not guilty,” that changed everything.
I read the document I was presenting in the Courtroom, and I came to a place where I read that I was to command these spirits to come into the Courtroom of Heaven. At this point, I lost my voice and became full of fear. I could see this multitude of spirits enter the Courtroom behind the accuser. Even though Simi and I were on the SKYPE audio for this session, she was right there with me. She knew I was struggling, and she began to speak that I was safe. She began to show me that God was right there with me. She said He was for me and that Jesus was right there with me. She said there was no rush; that this was all for me and was not a trauma but a healing. I took a deep breath and read on. Next, I commanded these spirits and all their cohorts to stand at attention. I saw what felt like endless rows of demonic forces snap to. I saw faces that did not like this at all. It was so very powerful to see that with God, all these demonic spirits that had tormented my life and family for generations had to obey. I then read the verdict against these enemies and executed vengeance and punishment upon them. I felt such peace flood over me.
After we finished in the Courtroom, Simi asked me if I felt anything I wanted to share. I said I felt “Justice.” I understand Ephesians 6:12 now. I understand how justice belongs to our God, Almighty. No courtroom in this world ever took my case and found justice for me. No courtroom in this world even made a safe place for me to tell my truth. What an honor that as a daughter of God, I can take my case to the Highest Courtroom that exists and receive justice. Now I have more than just my truth to tell. I have a testimony of what God did to free me and all my generations from the horror that was a part of our family. IT STOPPED WITH ME AND GOD!
Grow in Grace
