Break Free From Silence

September 23, 2020     |     Despite how dysfunctional King David’s family was and Tamar’s unfair call to silence in 2 Samuel 13, God made sure her story was recorded in the Bible. Perhaps God documented it for you to realize that the things that took place in your past—abuse, abandonment, lack of affection—weren’t your fault.

God doesn’t want you to be bitter or depressed due to silence and hidden hurts. He can’t heal your heart and soul if you don’t allow Him entrance into the things that wounded you. You may feel unloved or unlovable, but God loves you!

God doesn’t want you to remain a disheartened person like Tamar; He wants you to live a victorious, joyful life. Open your heart to Him, so He can heal you from injustices that injured you and have warped your self-esteem.

When you break free from your silence and bring those hurtful things out of the closet and into the God’s loving hands, He’ll transform your life from the inside out and restore your dignity. He’ll heal your wounds and give you the ability to forgive those who harmed you.

As you and God work together to heal your heart and soul, you’ll be set free to move forward and fulfill your God-ordained destiny.

Break Free From Silence

“…Well, my sister, keep quiet for now, since he’s your brother. Don’t you worry about it.” So Tamar lived as a desolate woman in her brother Absalom’s house.

2 Samuel 13:20 NLT

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. –Psalm 147:3 NIV

Pray that the Holy Spirit will give you the courage to speak to someone about the things that you’ve been silent about.
