6 BUT A WOUNDED SPIRIT, WHO CAN BEAR:
Proverbs 8:14 The Spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, But who can bear a broken spirit?
Afflicted: smitten; and so in a state of grief or hopelessness. Broken, beaten, and crushed.
This speaks of an inner attitude that is broken and crushed…by the experiences of life….by trials that seem to have no end. The person with a wounded or broken spirit is one who has given up on life…thrown in the towel…defeated…the wind has been knocked out of them emotionally….
The wounded spirit is a way beyond just feeling down in the dumps. The inner drive is gone….
The fire in the belly has gone out….The desire to live may no longer be there….if speaks of an inner sense of hopelessness…deep depression loss of interest in life.
God is able to lift up any soul that looks up to him.
1 Peter. 5:7-casting all your care upon Him, for he careth for you. God can lift us up and KEEP us and sustain us through ANY tragedy or trial.
7. I GOT BACK-UP:
Don’t allow the enemy to stop the vision or plan of God. Don’t agree with the Devil.
Our Back-Up is the Father-Son and Holy Ghost.
1 Peter 5:8-Be Sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
We must STAND FIRM IN OUR FAITH.
Rev 12:12 The devil knows He has a short Time...
8. MOVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY OF LIFE:
Luke 17:21 Behold the Kingdom of God is Within You.
We have been given Authority, we have the Keys.
Our Father wants us Whole, remember the woman with the issue of blood, her faith made her whole.
3 John 1: Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. Ps 23 saids that He restores our Soul.
Where the Lord is taking us, we must be READY.
His Power is at Work with Us.
9. FIND THE BLESSING IN THE PLACE WHERE YOU ARE:
Gen 13:14:and the lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward and southward, and eastward, and westward.
Phil 4:11-Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Discover blessing while you are in a place of
Blessing. Live a Consecrated life, we were brought with a price. Find favor in the place where you are.
Healing, Peace is Ours. When God is with me down is still up.
10. THE GLORY OF UNIQUENESS:
1 PETER 2:9-But ye are a chosen generation, royal
Priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;
God has put special abilities in each one of us.
Be who you are and enjoy and celebrate your uniqueness.
Each one of us is a Gift from God, we are different. Know your identity in Christ. Open the beauty & glory on what is on the inside. Reflect His Love & Light. All of us are Beautiful in the Lord.

JOY to the world! The Lord has come, Let the Earth Receive her King!
The JOY of the Lord is our strength, for the JOY set before Him

is JOY, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing. For the Kingdom
Count it all JOY when ye fall into divers temptations:
