Healing unresolved wounds

In this type of ministry, you will encounter individuals who have been wounded or hurt in the past, yet their wounds have never been healed. When we have a physical wound, one of the best things we can do to speed up the healing process is to clean out the wound, then let the air get to it. This same principal is true with emotional wounds; one of the biggest mistakes we can make is to keep a wound from being healed by keeping it to ourselves and hold on to our pain. That is a sure-fire way to prevent healing from taking place. It's as if we treasure our wound when we hold it close to us and refuse to let it go! Don't be fooled, it is simply the devil's trick to keep our wounds from healing. Why? Because a wounded spirit is vulnerable to infection if it does not receive proper healing!

We are never to suppress or even try to forget about our wounds, we are to seek healing for them. Unresolved hurts must be brought out in the open and healing must be received. Jesus is waiting to heal the wounds, but the person must be ready to receive (or allow) that healing to take place. A person who has been hurt through abuse for example, must recognize their unresolved hurt feelings, and be willing to place them in Jesus' hands so that He can heal them. Holding on to hurt feelings can hinder the Holy Spirit from being able to effectively minister to that area of their life. They must also realize the provision that God has for their emotional healing, such as how part of Jesus' ministry (which is still alive and well today through the work of the Holy Spirit) was to heal the brokenhearted (see Luke 4:18). The individual must release the hurt in their heart, and allow the Lord to comfort and heal their wounds. God's Word tells us to cast our cares upon Him, for He cares for us:

1 Peter 5:7, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."

God's Word is also clear that one of the things that Jesus did for us was carry our sorrows, which literally translates to afflictions, meaning grief, pain and sorrow. To be afflicted basically means that you have been injured and have pain, and since the literal translation here also includes grief and sorrow, this is clearly speaking of emotional damage. Just think about it, if Jesus shed His blood just for our physical healing (Isaiah 53:5), would He not also make provision for our emotional healing as well? Of course He did!

Isaiah 53:4, "Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows (affliction - grief, pain & sorrow): yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted."

Throughout the healing process, it is very beneficial for the person receiving emotional healing to seek intimacy with God. If they have a hard time drawing close to God, for example, if they are afraid of Him, then there may be strongholds present that need to be torn down. Many are afraid of God to the point where they are unable to draw near to Him, and this serves as a wall of division to keep them from knowing their Father's love intimately.
