The Hurt And Healing Of Abuse Part 4
February 28, 2023
Part 4 of 4
Is there any hope for those involved in abuse to let down their defenses? Pastor Erwin Lutzer’s co-author, Dorie Van Stone, shares healing stories of abuse. In this message, we open our hands to confront our past and commit it to God. It’s time to come to terms with our past, finding peace with God.
Putting Your Past Behind You
Alcoholism. Child Abuse. Divorce. Gluttony. Abortion. Homosexuality. Sexual Addictions. Is there a place to begin again?
No one can go back to the starting line in the race of life. What’s done, is done. But we are not tied to our past mistakes. By following God’s instructions and allowing Him to salve our wounds, we can be freed from the weight of guilt, regret, and bitter heartache. In Putting Your Past Behind You, Dr. Lutzer explains what the Bible says about God’s role in the process of separating hurting and discouraged people from their pasts. Come to understand that your trial, addiction, or injustice is not uncommon to man. You aren’t facing your hurt alone. God is faithfully standing ready to help, and He almost always uses His people to share in His work of restoration and healing. Many others have struggled with the pain you are feeling. And many have traveled beyond the pain to become blessed servants of Christ. Others have put a past just like yours behind them; so can you.
