Matthew 6:15-16 For if you forgive men for their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men for their sins, neither will your Father forgive your sins.
Been hurt by someone you loved and trusted? Perhaps it was your parents, siblings, spouse, relatives, neighbor, coworker, church brother or sister, stranger, children or even your friend?
Well, I believe being wounded,hurt and suffering from pain describes ALL of our lives. Yes, we all can say that in this life we have been wounded and offended by someone we knew and trusted. I must admit there is nothing like the sting of being wounded by those we love, trusted and care about.
The question is what have you done about it? If you are still holding on to it what are you going to do about it? The only option in the past and now is “FORGIVENESS”. God expects and accepts nothing else.
It saddens me to know that even many confessing Christians are still harboring anger and are continuing to daily drink from the cup of poison called “unforgiveness, bitterness, hate, anger and malice” even yet today. They run to church every Sunday in their proclamation to love, serve and worship God, yet they still refuse to forgive in their heart, their offenders.
Holding unforgivness in your heart and confessing Christ? All i can say is you can run to church all you want, serve the needy all you want, give to missions and do mission work all you want, talk about Jesus all you want, but if your heart is not right with man and with God, your labor is in vain.
God deals with the “HEART” of the matter! Nothing else matters for the Lord judges the heart of man and guess what? it’s time for a “HEART” checkup by the Great Physician name God Almighty who is the discerner of ALL things.
Not only is unforgiveness a matter of the heart, it affects our health physically and mentally.
Jesus was rejected, beaten, mocked, spat upon, lied on, nailed to a cross and yet Jesus said about His offenders called “humanity” FATHER, FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO”.
Unforgiveness! IT’S TIME TO LET IT GO! Life is too short!
What is your soul worth? Have you left the worth and destination of your soul in the hands of your offender? That is exactly what you have done when you made the choice not to forgive them.
Today is the day to replace unforgiveness, resentment and anger with the “LOVE'“ of God for your offender. To forgive means to set yourself free!
Romans 12:19- Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
I am not saying forgiveness is easy, but what i am saying is YES, we can forgive! Forgiveness can be accomplished in and through us with the help of God’s Holy Spirit who worketh in us as we daily submit in obedience to the authority of God’s Word and the leading of God’s spirit.
IF WE DO NOT FORGIVE, GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE US! This is His Word and guess what? God’s word changes not!
Unforgiveness! Are you not tired of being miserable because of it? If you are, it’s time to seek the Lord for help.
If we forgive, God is willing to forgive us, but, if we choose not to forgive we ourselves WILL NOT be forgiven according to the word of God.
Holy spirit help us to open the door to our wounded, broken, cluttered with unforgiveness, poisonous hearts and remove the REIGN of unforgivenes from there and allow your Holy Spirit to enter in so that Your Spirit of “LOVE” will rest, rule and abide with us now and forever.
Today is the day to make seeking and obeying the word of God a priority in our lives. Make sure you take a daily dose of prayer and God’s Word for it will continue to help you heal from past, present and future hurts that is guaranteed to come our way as humans.
Believe it or not, an evil, angry, hateful, resentful, poisonous heart WILL keep you out of heaven.
YOU MUST FORGIVE! IT IS NOT AN OPTION!
Planning on spending eternity with God? Unforgiveness will not help you get there but FORGIVENESS WILL.
THE SHACKLES OF UNFORGIVENESS MUST BE BROKEN!
LORD, WE CALL ON YOU RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS TO HELP US BREAK EVERY SHACKLED CHAINS OF OUR MIND THAT IS CLOGGING US UP WITH UNFORGIVENESS, RESENTMENT, HATE AND EVIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
If you are reading this blog today, I plead the blood of Jesus against the enemy of your mind called “UNFORGIVENESS” and I pray for the “RELEASE” of God’s LOVE, His presence, His comfort through His Word and His anointing to flow through our hearts and minds so that we may be able to live the life that God has called us to live as His people in this evil world in which we live.
Lord we thank you for healing our hearts and most of all for giving us your power through your Holy Spirit that enables us to forgive those who have hurt and offended us in Jesus name.
Thank You Lord for your Faithfulness and your new mercies you allows us to see every morning.
GREAT IS YOU FAITHFULNESS LORD UNTO YOUR PEOPLE!
Thank You Lord!
Your Servant Debra
