You’re going to get wounded but you cannot stay there. You have to get healed of your hurts or you’re going to be absolutely useless in the battles to come. If any one of us here is in ministry and you’re carrying wounds, you need to get healed. You don’t have a right to be wounded. You have a right to be healed, so let’s get healed! If you’re holding onto something that somebody else has done, the only person you’re killing is you. The only person you’re hurting is you.
