So many today are walking around with pain from the past that has been suppressed and buried deep within their souls. They smile on the outside, but inside, there is a whole different story book. I know this to be so. I have personally experienced this.
After becoming saved some twenty-three years ago, I never dreamed that a person could be saved, sanctified, filled with the Holy Ghost, and still have soul wounds that affect the quality of their spiritual lives as far as joy and contentment. Think about it. We are three part beings. We are spirit (where our conscience of, communication with, and wisdom of God is stored), soul (that part of of us that holds our mind, will, and emotions), and body (blood, flesh and bones). All 3 parts make up one being, just as God is one God but has three distinct personalities (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). If we are not aware of these truths, we can walk around with past hurts that will affect us spiritually, emotionally, and even physically due to stress and depression.
I am convinced that one must ask God to heal their soul wounds, even if they have been born again. These soul wounds will remain open, festering, foul, and diseased unless God’s power binds or closes them up. Read Psalms 147:3:
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds”
Cry out to God if you are experiencing sadness, dissatisfaction, and torment from past wounds and disappointments. Do not hide them any longer. Trust me. These soul wounds will not heal on their own. It may appear for some time that they are all better but just when you least expect it, something will trigger the pain and the bleeding will begin again. Don’t place a bandage on your wounds. Trust God to make you every bit whole! You deserve it.
