Dear One,
You know that deep wounds take a long time to heal. Healing comes more quickly when the wounds are exposed to light. They immediately begin to heal.
The same thing is true with deep emotional wounds. They take a long time to heal unless they are brought to the surface, exposed to air and light, and then the healing can be accelerated.
Keeping wounds hidden in darkness will give them the opportunity to fester and will allow infection to begin to take over. This is the reason I said to confess to one another so that you will be healed. I know that bringing them to the light will rob them of the power that darkness has over them.
I have given gifts to the world of pastoring and counseling so that someone is always there to hear the stories of the wounded, bringing wounds to the surface, exposing them to the Light. Then the power that came from the darkness is overcome and healing will begin.
Very often pride will cause someone to be timid in confessing that they have been wounded. Pride is a robber, too, and its aim is to cause you to keep wounds hidden away from healing light.
Choose your counselor carefully and you will experience healing.
Love, God
