“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 2 Corinthian 1:3-4
Before I could even get into worship and prayer this morning Father released a word concerning His people that it is now time to stop the flow of emotional bleeding. As I began to pray, He expressed that there are still too many wounded soldiers who are out on the battlefield leaking contaminated blood throughout the body. There are also many who have been wounded but are still operating in ministry with open wounds which have not had the opportunity and time to properly heal. Still there are many others who are yet going forth in ministry with the objects and instruments used against them in battle left hanging from their bodies. Now is the time and today is the day to step away from the battlefield to get the open wounds cleansed, tended to and bandaged properly. For those of you who happen to be one of the recently wounded, know that this is a word of love and compassion because our Heavenly Father has expressed deep concern for the total health and well being of His wounded sheep on today.
On last month I was instructed to write about emotional healing and how we as the Body of Christ should take precautions to check and work on maintaining our mental health and well being. Periodically checking to be sure that our emotions are in check and not spilling all over the place will allow for us to go further in doing the work of building up the kingdom of God. For the times when we continued in our assignments without taking the time to assess our wounds, we risked the possibility of setting up infection in our bodies as well as unknowingly infecting others. Today, if you are open to hear the Father’s heart on this matter you can begin your healing right away.
So how can we stop the flow of emotional bleeding in our lives?
1. When we know that we have been wounded, stop and assess the damage.
2. We have to be honest with ourselves that there is some bleeding.
3. Take time out to get proper care for the wound(s) by seeking the services of a trusted friend, counselor, mental health professional or pastor.
4. Allow time for God’s healing to flow. Release all guilt about taking time away so that the healing process is not hindered.
5. Continue to spend time communing with the Father in worship and prayer.
6. Spend time in the word of God to regain strength for the next assignment.
7. Keep our hearts and minds free from any debris or residue from prior battles.
8. Reach out to help our wounded brother and sisters who don’t know that they are bleeding.
Father, thank you for your concern and love for your people on today. Thank you for revealing your heart concerning an issue that many of us may not have been aware of. Thank you for providing your wisdom and a way of escape so we may be healed. Thank you for covering our wounds with your healing salve. Thank you Father for your love covering us as a blanket where we are safe from harm and danger. Thank you for allowing us to dwell in your secret place where we can rest under the shadow of your wings. We ask that you forgive us for infecting others unknowingly and we ask that you would send forth your healing into their lives as well. Thank you Father for you see and you know all things and nothing is hidden from your watchful eyes. Truly you are an incredible and awesome Father who is always concerned about the health and wellbeing of your children. We love you Dear God for all you have done for us, in the name of Jesus we pray on this day, Amen.

Prayer of Salvation
Heavenly Father, I repent of all of my sins and right now I do confess that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for the remission of my sins. I believe that Jesus died and was buried and rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven. I receive Him now as Lord of my life and I now commit to serve him for the rest of my days.
It’s in Jesus’ name I do pray, Amen.
