This is good Truth Network every man is a great image or one doesn't usually feel that way. Jesus speaks of narrow gates wide roads masculine journey is filled with many twist and turns, so how do we keep from losing heart trying to find a good way when life feels more like a losing battle than something worth dying for, grab your gear, request your band of brothers will serve as the guides and what we call masculine journey masculine journey starts here now welcome the masculine journey are very glad to have you with us today. We're in the middle of a will he think is a four-part series, but probably will be 12 will go back to the pillars of whatever will was like three and waited up like 12. The Taj Mahal now. It happens when you get more than one preacher in the room that's true that's true in God continues to say not merrily done with that topic and talk about its more. We have been talking about what could've been a six part series, but we chose to do this four-part series underneath if you want to kinda lather six pieces of that for us what that would be yeah where the focus is disruption dismantling healing and restoring and now, like I, brought up the fact that there's really, six parts to that and that and that it starts with an enticement. Usually, for me anyway. God entices me into something I get excited about that and then and then the dismantling comes along to were now on, like the shy dog in the back room. I know I I see that that's a bone. I see the treat. I'm not sure I want to be involved in the treat because there's always dismantling you know that occurs after the disruption. That's definitely not occur, so there's kind of an enticement, a dismay disruption dismantling healing, restoring, and then kind of releasing, you know, the restored person back on to the kingdom of God or into the kingdom of God for the kingdom of God. So and so for speaking in terms of never listen to that the podcast up to now, you must last couple weeks. You go back and listen to, masculine but Harold if he can help us understand this topic of disruption. We talked about a couple weeks ago how would you to simply put, what disruption is a change in your plan that you didn't want okay often so I could be driving a financial it could be anything. Well, in my example I had no desire whatsoever to retire. I love my work a plan. My stock answer was no room out on the gurney.

I have no desire to retire I didn't get retire. So my life was completely disrupted and to my wife's chagrin I came home and started creating problems. I disrupted her life and the quickly the dismantling right after that.

I'm sure this year. Part of that with the spirit dismantling how I would that be described will you know. Dismantling is you know if you if you can restore an old car if you can restore a house. If you're if you're gonna remodel something there's always dismantling that happens right, you're taking off the stuff you don't want you taking off the faade if you will, and getting to the heart of the matter figuring out what's really underneath there what one of our friends.

As you know, check under the hood. Your figuring out what's really there and so that dismantling you know it's it's kind of get naked.

It's it's you not taken off the outer garments and seeing what's really in there. And because that's what God wants to heal you now meet, he doesn't want to sell a patch on you know a new patch on an old garment. He wants to change the whole garment you go to get the infection out from underneath you can't just feel what's on top and so you get a good at the source.

Now we talked about last week disruptions. We can't really avoid those right there going to happen. Life just brings disruption and ends up but dismantling you can fight that you can you can try not to be dismantled yeah and it which leads to another disruption in outing it again. It's yeah you can fight it and and I believe that God in his kindness sometimes pushes us through it, and sometimes in his kindness he he lets us, stay were at Pearl a bit longer, but ultimately he wants to dismantle that false self and and get it off and get it out of the way to get to the healing.

I quoted Leanne Payne last week where you know she talks about the fact that were born lonely and we all of a sudden start putting on this shell around ourselves trying to become something that others would like, and we begin to focus more on them. Then, on our own heart and and on our relationship with God and so that dismantling processes is the process of God breaking that outer shell yeah it's it it's also getting out the orphan spirit yeah that we have you know it can manifest in that direction can manifest in other directions as well, but it's it's getting at that orphan spirit dismantling that so that we can fully step in the healing and then into restoration. If you can't go to healing without having dismantling right right you. The doctor has to go and and and see what's really going on in and do some things before you can get healed. Sometimes my shoulder had surgery last June, it wasn't going to heal on its own. No right there had to be some level of dismantling before the restoring could happen the healing and restoration cut right into that point. Some things can heal kind of on their own. Some things there is healing in time. For instance, for some things but not all things and then the very deep things of the ones were talking about because those are the ones that really affect your life and that they have the first couple want to go to. I wish they would've showed me this at boot camp. Honestly my first boot camp because if I went in and elaborate while at heart and I was one of the people useless to you before you come to the camp. We prefer that you read a lot of heart. It's and jailed a innovated night editor. The compliant guy, I didn't. I can follow the rules young I went without reading them. Not only did read the book I did have the book. It was given to me that I probably read it three or four times before I went and in this get this part of you know this healing piece you and I just kind of assumed that healing would be like a one and done in and you know that all I got healing on that I got.

I get that yeah yeah and so this is more often for me.

What healings look like that if you take this word that they instead of looking at ogres of you despite healing. Yet instead of men, men, Armada high, yeah, yeah, but healing has layers to talk little bit about is with the Shrek. For your information is a lot more to Alderson people think they example example okay holders are like the state yes is no law, you leave them out in the San Miguel brass.Spratt little white hair shares. I have layers have layers I didn't have layers. We both have layers. Will you both have they united by like onions take. I don't care what everyone likes all gutters are not cakes you like the you say phosphate is not a leg up off the beast about starting my copies may be the most delicious thing on the whole thing.

You know that you're coming. You have a tissue assembling word that I love Parfitt was healing a lot of times comes in. It comes over time and in segments.

Yeah, and extremities were layers, but I could segments is good layers are going to be a large healings like oranges.

Yeah, I the if you're dealing with something like an addiction. You know, the first layer is getting over the denial. You know, just admitting accepting. Okay, I have an addiction. There's one layer can and you know the naivety of of my own heart when when I came to terms with things like that was hot, right, to get the healing now year it's it's it's like it's common it's down the line somewhere.

Healing has started healing is not finished and so there's more layers you know when in Scripture Isaiah 61 one if you hadn't read that sure yeah I mean Jesus quotes this one. He basically announces his ministry in Luke four, but he says the spirit of the sovereign Lord is only because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and so Jesus is saying look I came to give healing. He came to forgive sins yes and that is part of the healing process but there's so much more.

He actually does care about giving insight to those who are living in darkness.

He cares about setting free those who are in a prison of of addiction or prison of abuse or a prison of of their own making.

Perhaps of of bad habits financially bad habits relationally bad habits you know at work different things Jesus cares about that and yes I want forgiveness of sins, but for those of us who have that forgiveness of sins.

Now I want some real healing to you in the words that you're reading that there is that the bind up the brokenhearted yeah I and that word in their means literally shattered the other broken. It's not just a crack night is not just a single break and this is a a a glass it's been dropped and their shards everywhere right in and sometimes that healing will come in big chunks
