A person blaming themselves for things not in their control can develop an addictive nature to numb the pain. They can become addicted to drugs, food, hoarding, laziness and even hurting themselves. They can become addicted to people, especially those that hurt them.
Whatever the pain is that is causing a person to feel like they deserve more pain, can be healed.
Follow these steps for deliverance:
1. PIN-POINT THE ORIGINAL PAIN. This will require some reflecting over the life of the person hurting. The person may want to journal some things that happened in childhood. This original pain may be burried in the person's mind. The only way to bring it out is to acknowledge it happened.
2. DON'T BLAME YOURSELF, FOGIVE. This step is very important. This is the step that can be the hardest for people but can not be skipped. Forgiveness must take place for healing. Forgive yourself means that you don't blame yourself for the pain. Forgiving someone else means they and that situation doesn't have power over you. It frees you from the pain and to allow love in.
3. RECEIVE GOD'S LOVE. God loves each person to the core. It does not matter what has been done, nothing can separate a person from God's love. He is waiting to receive everyone just the way they are. He will replace pain for peace in the heart of those broken. Only He can give true peace. Going to other sources for peace as mentioned above, will only cause more pain. He just want to love the pain away.
Romans 8:35-39 says Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j] 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
