In Proverbs 3:5-6 the word of God tells us to Trust God with all our heart and lean not to our own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct our path. This includes the pathology of how we think, perceive, desire, understand, and decide rooted in our own understanding. Traumatization of the mind creates a wounded pathology of trauma; negatively impacting how we think, perceive, understand, desire and respond due to traumatic life experience(s) that ensue crisis in our life situations that was derived from a damaged pathological way of believing.
In the body of Christ, we may understand traumatized pathology to be generational curses that create generational cycles of crisis, preventing people from being who God created them to be and living the life they desire that is in alignment with God plans for their life. However traumatization does not always appear as detrimental to our well being until we experience the consequential outcome of our decision. Many of cultural norms are the manifestation of a traumatized pathology of thinking, perceiving, desiring, deciding and responding. This is why God sent His love into the perishing worldly mindset to save it from the traumatized pathology of sin and iniquity that is the mind and heart of the enemy being manifested through the decisions and actions of people. When not recognized we think that life challenges to include crisis is happening to us when indeed life is flowing out of our traumatized identity of the mind and heart. A traumatized mind and heart attracts the dark forces within people who are in desired agreement with how we think, perceive, understand, desire, decide and respond.
Therefore, when we try to pursue our life goals and desired interest while not understanding it is rooted in a misappropriated thought, perception, desire and decision that will result in an adverse response; we enter the generational cycle of the generational curse that is also the traumatized pathology of the mind.
When we desire to really know God we will really understand Him as Savior because we will come to know Him as Healer of our whole person identity in mind, spirit, soul and body; healing how we think, perceive, understand, desire, decide and respond that empowers, as well as, equips us to recognize as we attract to us blessed relationships; creating life experiences that is the result of our healed identity in the mind of Christ. This is the purpose of the word of God instructing us to let this mind be in us that is in Christ Jesus. We are purposed to have an intimate understanding of how the mind of Christ heals our whole person identity. In understanding this we better understand our covenant relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit that we are made in the image and likeness. This intimate understanding is the result of us practically applying the word of faith in our daily life decisions that structures our everyday lifestyle.
