When I ask for healing I usually ask for healing of physical needs. I am selfish. I want to be comfortable in this world. So I want to be healed of aches and pains. I also pray for healing for emotional aches and pains. But I RARELY pray for healing of my sinful heart. Why? Because that would mean examining my heart and admitting to my sin. AND that can lead to guilt and/or shame.
I am very guilty of trying to gain more knowledge and letting that knowledge sit in my head rather than penetrate my heart. So my prayer for myself and each of you throughout this study is that as we gain knowledge of who God is, that knowledge will settle in our hearts and help us display strength and move us to take action.
