INTRO:

My kids and I watched a movie a couple years ago entitled "Holes"

These young boys / for some crime / were sent to a reform boys camp

To dig holes in the middle of the desert

As the evil warden watches over them

The interesting twist is that this now desert used to be a beautiful wetland and lake

Where great fruit and vegetables gardens were grown

But something evil happens and the fruitful place becomes a desert full of holes!

- There are events that happen in some of our pasts that create holes in our soul.

- Which prevent us from holding the blessings God has

- Psalms 147 is very interesting to note all the huge miracles God does:

o He determines the number of stars and calls them by name

o He covers the sky with clouds

o He supplies the earth with rain

o He makes the grass grow for the cattle

o He spreads the snow like wool

o He scatters the frost like ashes

o He hurls down the hail like pebbles

- Yet, in the midst of all these great, powerful exploits of nature...

- The first thing we see Him do...

- Vs 3 - Heals the brokenhearted and binds up their

wounds

-binds = To wrap firmly

To govern or rule

To pack of fill

-wound = Sorrow

Sore

Pain

-Hole = A hollow place in a solid body

-The anatomy of the soul

-The assault of the soul

-The atonement of the soul

1. The Anatomy of the Soul

-Anatomy = structure / Examination / Soul / Emotions / Psyche / Moods / Appetites

-Many wonder why they’ve been saved many years and still have a hard time.

-Producing fruit - Galatians 5

1. Love

2. Joy

3. Peace

4. Patience

5. Kindness

6. Goodness

7. Faithfulness

8. Gentleness

9. Self-control

-The bucket we are trying to water with

-Has holes in it.

-Many fail to realize how close knit our whole person is.

-God said...Let us make man in our image

-Trinity

-Father / Son / Holy Spirit

-Body / Mind / Soul >>>>> Explain

DEUTERONOMY 6:5

"Love the Lord your God will all your heart and with all your soul and will all your strength."

MATTHEW 22:37

"Jesus replied, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind."

-When the Spirit is born again we go to heaven

-But until then, my soul needs healing

2. The Assault of the Soul

-Before salvation we get involved in things with the body that affects our soul

-Sometimes it’s what others do

-Few people realize how much the events of our past affect...

-...and sometimes control...

-our present

-We are at an altar being prayed for

-Get blessed

-But can’t contain it

-Because we’ve not yet allowed God to bind

up and fill up the holes

-...all your blessings

-slowly seep out the holes

-leaving you dry / unable to produce fruit

-Holes...cause you to live with:

„X Fear

„X Doubt

„X Anxiety

„X Depression

„X Anger

„X Cynicism

„X Low Self Esteem

„X Shame

„X Poverty Mind Set

-Its hard for us to retain God’s blessing

-when we have a soul with holes

EXAMPLE: buckets with holes

ILLUSTRATE: Can’t retain God’s Word / blessings, etc.

Trying to water a dying plant

-These holes become the devil’s foothold

-Holes are the entry points of pain...The Devil’s foothold.
