Relationships are complicated—they’re messy, difficult and take a lot of work. Sometimes they go wrong and people hurt us, or we hurt them, causing pain that goes deep. It’s inevitable: As long as there are people in our lives, there will be pain! So, these carnal weapons can be avoided while dealing with pain and hurt.
Fortunately, God knew this so He put a lot of practical wisdom about relationships in the Bible.
In his series “How to Restore a Wounded Relationship,” IHOPKC director Mike Bickle shares real life examples of how to heal the hurt and disappointment that so many of us feel.
Whether you’ve been hurt by a child, boyfriend or girlfriend, co-worker, or spouse, the Lord wants to bring restoration and healing. He can touch the deepest hurts and untangle even the most complicated relational webs, because “with God, all things are possible” (Mark 10:27).
The most common way a relationship is wounded is through corrupt, perverse and sarcastic speech. The Bible also warns against complaining, which hurts our spirits and drives people away.
