This teaching is on spiritual heart conditions. It will show you how to watch over your spiritual heart. You will find spiritual wholeness and be equipped to minister to others.
Let’s discuss heart to heart, on how to watch over your spiritual heart. God’s Word says in Proverbs 4:23: Above everything else, guard your heart; for it is the source of life’s consequences.
In the course, ‘Embracing God’s Grace’, we looked at a wounded and fearful heart (breakfreetoday.org/amazing-grace).
In this session you will learn about three more spiritual heart conditions and how to be set free from them:
- a desensitized heart – understand sexual and emotional unhealthy soul ties.
- a hardened heart – learn how a hardened heart affects your ability to clearly hear and see in the Spirit.
- a doubting heart – discover how a fragmented, double-souled person can be made whole.
A desensitized heart
What does a desensitized heart look like for a child of God?
A desensitized heart is a conscience that is seared. If the conscience is “seared” – (literally “cauterized”) – then your conscience has been rendered insensitive and no longer guides you!
A hardened heart
In Mark 8:17-19, Christ spells out for us the characteristics of a hardened heart as an inability to see, understand, hear, and remember.
Ephesians 4:18 explains: They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.
It is interesting that in the Greek, hardening in this verse is also translated blindness.
With that understanding we now know that a hardened heart causes you and me to see life through a filter – that filter or veil has covered our eyes and ears so that we cannot hear, see, understand or remember very well.
A doubting heart
James chapter one says: When you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. (James 1:6).
What does it mean to be double minded?
Mark from ‘hopepreserved.org’ explains: “Dipsuchos is the Greek prefix di, meaning “two” and psuchos, the root word meaning “soul.” The literal meaning of dipsuchos is “double-souled.” Now this does not mean that people have two souls. James means that double-minded behaviour comes from two contradictory parts of one soul. In other words, a double soul (or a trapped part within the soul) is a division of the mind and emotions, that produce contradictory patterns of thinking.”
The bible makes it clear that a doubter, is a double-minded or double-souled person!
