The Wounds of Lazarus

The wounds of Lazarus became one of the many topics at bible study tonight, but a powerful revelation that I HAD to share immediately.

It is taken from  Luke 16:20:

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

When dogs hurt themselves they have a substance in their tongue to heal their wounds. They were drawn to Lazarus to do the same. What spiritual or mental wounds do we have that draws ‘dogs’ to our lives? I’ve seen this in my life and others. I had to ask myself, why am I drawing certain people or situations in my life? I had to go back to the wound of my past. The hurt, the shame, the bitterness, the forgiveness. Until we recognize our former hurts and heal them, we will continue to draw ‘dogs’, instead of ‘gods’ to our lives.

In addition, you cannot blame and walk in faith. Blame is designed to steal the image that God has given you of royalty. Blaming gives that person power to govern your future. (Winston) 

Rise, take up your bed and walk. Rise up in the inside, and the outside will have to stand up. I pray that we all are healed by the stripes of Jesus Christ!

I plan to meditate the following every night for 30 days! touch and agree with me! love you and be blessed!

Ephesians 1:17-21

New King James Version (NKJV)

17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding[a] being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come
