Bishop Joseph Walker III says many believers want to experience spiritual deliverance from their spiritual struggles, yet they fail to find and identify the root causes. It's only when they discover and pinpoint the trigger point that they will be able to begin the healing process.
Charismatics, he says, tend to deal with issues only from a spiritual perspective. But seeking clinical spiritual counseling can help you discover underlying issues that can help save your marriage, your family and your ministry.
"We must acknowledge that something has gone awry, the uneasiness you have in your spirit about living in the duality and the paradox of this place of 'I know that there is something that is in me that is not right,'" Walker, the pastor of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Nashville, Tennessee, told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of "Greenelines" on the Charisma Podcast Network. "You want to make it right, to know that you're in an actual Holy Spirit-led season in your life.
"God has given you the grace to be able to function in ministry, whatever you are doing. But God also gives you the resource to be able to walk through it. I've walked through it myself.
"Through Jesus Christ, we have the ability to be completely free of the emotional, social and spiritual struggles that have us bound. But to experience lasting change, we must stop dealing only with the symptoms and get to the root issue. When you do that, you will be in a place where you can be transparent about your story and let other people know that can take our mess and turn it into a message."
