What is Christ-Centered Inner Healing?
Inner-healing is based on the premise that a person cannot have a feeling without a thought or memory in the mind that is the source of that feeling. Often, hurtful, painful or destructive feelings relate to older, often traumatic memories that still hold an emotional power because of a resulting negative conclusion that is held in the mind. The Biblical basis for this healing work is:
Romans 12:2 ~ “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 ~ “We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
John 8:32 ~ “then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
The healing process promoted here requires that we hear and accept the
truth of Jesus Christ internally, and then live out that truth in faith. Jesus will transform our past, present and future thinking so that we can live in freedom. Galatians 5:1, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.”
Why is it so effective?
Inner healing is different from some pastoral counseling in that it is a gentle, nonjudgmental process that is not based on rebuking. It is different from cognitive therapy in that the truth comes from the Holy Spirit speaking to the person’s mind, rather than the therapist bringing external truth to the client. In the inner healing process, the client invites Jesus into the memory and when the truth is revealed, whatever was struck emotionally is released. The therapist could bring the external exact same truth to the client and the client may take months, even years, to hear it. When Jesus reveals the truth directly to the client, the lie departs and the truth transforms the mind. With this Christ-centered, inner healing approach, clients can receive emotional healing in a Christian therapist’s clinical office.
“I encourage you to learn from this material and see for yourself how profound the change for your clients can be. As well, use this material to train gifted counsellors in your church to help the hurting. Jesus came to heal the broken-hearted, to free the captives, to lead people out of the darkness and to replace despair and mourning with gladness and praise. Watch your faith grow as Jesus works with your clients to provide mental and emotional healing.” ~ Dr. Alf Davis
