In Luke chapter 4 we read the story of Jesus being led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit where he was tempted by the devil over 40 days. It’s interesting that after the 40 days the Bible tells us that Jesus returned to Galilee “in the power of the Spirit.” He then went directly to Nazareth, where He had been brought up, and in the synagogue declares His action plan by quoting from Isaiah 61.
Isaiah 61:1-2 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’S favor.
After being a pastor for 30 years I can definitively state that I have never met a single person who has not been hurt and wounded in their life. Because of this fact and Jesus’ example in scripture, we take the healing of the brokenhearted very seriously. Of course, we pray for and have seen miraculous physical healings over the years, but the healing of hearts is absolutely necessary for an individual to fulfill their God given purpose.
We effectively deal with issues of forgiveness/unforgiveness, known sin, issues with the occult, and spiritual oppression that can hinder a persons walk with God and their ability to experience the healing and freedom that Christ purchased for us.
