I had a product on this site where I shared the healing journey, how God heals your broken heart. Instead of selling it, I am going to give it to you for free in six installments. This is installment number six, the final episode. Hooray!
Today we’re going to talk about slavery and the Promised Land in terms of our own journey of healing. We are called to beautiful freedom, but we often prefer what is safe and knowable: the slavery of the past. Find out how to be SET RADICALLY FREE!!!
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:15-16).
“Then the LORD said to Joshua, ‘Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.’ So the place has been called Gilgal to this day” (Joshua 5:9).
“He led you through the vast and dreadful desert, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. He gave you manna to eat in the desert, something your fathers had never known, to humble and to test you so that in the end it might go well with you. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.’ But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today” (Deuteronomy 8:15-18).
“If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; if He has made it bitter, drink it in communion with Him.” Oswald Chambers
“Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ, and go out into the irresistible future with Him” (Chambers, Oswald, My Utmost for His Highest, Westwood, NJ: Barbour and Company, 1935, p. 49).
Frederick Buechner says that the place that you ought to serve is “where your greatest joy meets the world’s greatest need.”

As you may or may not know, I’m taking a much-needed sabbatical this summer. Read about that here. So I’ll be sharing some of my talks, interviews and teachings that have been a benefit to others from years past. I pray that these messages deeply, profoundly bless you.
