“Injuries of the Soul”

Injuries of the soul are those deep places that no one can reach but God.  These are secret places that are within you that you cannot always point out or explain to others, but you know they exist.  You know they exist because God causes you to know. “He reveals the deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him”. (Daniel 2:22)

You know they exist because you can feel it.  It is the psychological, emotional, and unpleasant ways of experiencing. It’s the noise of the injury that extends far down that is very intense and deep.  What is the solution? The solution is knowing that “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight; everything is uncovered and exposed before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account”. (Hebrews 4:13).

Giving in account. How do I give in account?  I am glad you asked. It is reporting and describing your situation to God.  It’ is simply telling Him all about it.  Many times things come up in us because God wants you to know it is there.  He wants you to deal with it.  Remember, this is between you and God.  He is the one that has brought it to your attention.  Now is the time to take it to the Lord in prayer.
