In Song of Songs 1, Jesus says, “Let me tell you how I see you. You are beauty itself to me. You’re like the beautiful tapestries hanging in the holy place.” 

Jesus says, “Loving me empowers you to obey me.” John 14:15 (TPT) The message is: “Come here. Just come love me. Let me love on you.” That’s where the magic happens: in His embrace. Love is the key, and intimacy with God is the way to the wholeness and to the significance and to the identity that we’re seeking.

In His embrace, we discover who we really are. Psalm 139 (TPT)says: 

“Lord, you know everything there is to know about me. 

You perceive every movement of my heart and soul,

and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind. 

You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. 

You read my heart like an open book

 and you know all the words I’m about to speak

before I even start a sentence! 

You know every step I will take before my journey even begins.

You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way,

and in kindness you follow behind me 

to spare me from the harm of my past. 

You have laid your hand on me! 

This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! 

Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength. 

Where could I go from your Spirit? 

Where could I run and hide from your face? 

If I go up to heaven, you’re there! 

If I go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too! 

If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there! 

If I fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting! 

Wherever I go, your hand will guide me; 

your strength will empower me. 

It’s impossible to disappear from you 

or to ask the darkness to hide me, 

for your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night. 

There is no such thing as darkness with you. 

The night, to you, is as bright as the day; 

there’s no difference between the two. 

You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside 

and my intricate outside, 

and wove them all together in my mother’s womb. 

I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! 

Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. 

It simply amazes me to think about it! 

How thoroughly you know me, Lord! 

You even formed every bone in my body 

when you created me in the secret place; 

carefully, skillfully you shaped me  from nothing to something. 

You saw who you created me to be before I became me! 

Before I’d ever seen the light of day, 

the number of days you planned for me 

were already recorded in your book. 

Every single moment you are thinking of me! 

How precious and wonderful to consider 

that you cherish me constantly in your every thought! 

O God, your desires toward me are more 

than the grains of sand on every shore! 

When I awake each morning, you’re still with me. 

O God, come and slay these bloodthirsty, murderous men! 

For I cry out, “Depart from me, you wicked ones!” 

See how they blaspheme your sacred name 

and lift up themselves against you, but all in vain! 

Lord, can’t you see how I despise those who despise you? 

For I grieve when I see them rise up against you. 

I have nothing but complete hatred and disgust for them. 

Your enemies shall be my enemies! 

God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. 

Examine me through and through; 

find out everything that may be hidden within me. 

Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares. 

See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, 

and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting way—

the path that brings me back to you.” 

These last two verses really sum up the ministry of inner healing and deliverance in saying:

“God, I invite you. I invite your searching and gazing into my heart. Examine me. Go through my thoughts, the hidden places within me. Pull out those lies. Pull out those anxious cares, those worries, and replace them with your truth. See if there’s any pain that I’m walking in and heal me. Bring me back to your glorious, everlasting way.”

That is what inner healing and deliverance is about.
