Healing From Spiritual Wounds
November 20, 2017
Light Chases Out Darkness And Heals All Spiritual Wounds
Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study
1 Nephi 16:10
“and the one pointed the way whither we should go into the wilderness.”
Many of us feel like we are in the wilderness or darkness. This could be because our marriages are stagnant or we have fallen out of love. Broken families can be healed. Marriages on the rocks can be restored to passion and real love. Children who have run away from home because of abusive and neglectful parents can be protected and healed. Abusive parents can also be healed of their spiritual sicknesses and instead of filling their children with darkness and horror because of abuse; they can learn to truly love them like God would and thus fill them with pure Godlike love instead. President Uchtdorf gave a powerful talk about light and darkness in October 2017 General Conference.
He said spiritual illness can build up over time without us knowing and it then becomes so heavy that we can hardly bear it.
He said, “Even the deepest spiritual wounds- yes, even those that may appear incurable- can be healed.”
“The Savior’s healing touch can transform lives in our day just as it did in His. If we will but have faith, He can take our hands, fill our souls with heavenly light and healing, and speak to us the blessed words, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.”
“Christ’s light brings hope, happiness, and healing of any spiritual wound or ailment.”
President Uchtdorf didn’t make any exceptions. Certainly deep and serious traumas fall under this category of spiritual wounds, such as PTSD, abuse of the worse kind. Certainly the Lord doesn’t want anyone to suffer a lifetime of pain because of PTSD. This is a trauma that disables some for a lifetime.
President Uchtdorf taught that we can overcome all darkness and our bodies can be filled with 100% light. Casting out the darkness and keep it out requires great effort.
Jesus Christ is the source of this healing. I feel like
Satan’s war has always been against Christ and it always will be. Jesus Christ is God! And, Satan does everything possible to imitate Him with fakeness. Satan knows the true gospel but he created his fake version of the gospel and he also knows the priesthood is God’s power but he also created his fake version of power. Satan is a marketing genius and easily draws us away from the Lord who can heal anything. Instead of turning to the Lord we turn to the world and entertainment, which is Satan’s scripture.
