EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We all need freedom from the grasp of unforgiveness.
God’s forgiveness is part of who He is, and our own character should reflect forgiveness despite what our flesh burdens us with.
We can become angry or upset and have that right to, but if we are walking in mercy ourselves, we ought to embrace mercy for others. How many times do we face this obstacle and think it applies to the other person and not us? I find myself talking to God on this topic often because so many suffer from it when they can not forgive. God loves others as much as He loves me, and you and God only can declare judgment, not us.
We need to leave our issues we have with others in God’s hands and then really exercise this “practice of obedience.” Do not try to expose all the dirt of the situation to others for console. Take it before God.
God is the only judge of a person’s heart, and He alone can guide and direct you to the right outcome through scripture and prayer.
Please think about the many times God forgave you. He can also help you with the process of healing your heart to forgive others. We need to learn to forgive ourselves so we can become stronger, free, and confident as we walk forward in our faith and as we demonstrate examples of “mercy” within ourselves.
This scripture is a way to process.
“When you pray, make sure you forgive the fault of others so that your father in heaven will also forgive you. But if you withhold forgiveness from others, your father withhold forgiveness from you.” (Matthew 6:14-15)
May we all keep this in front of our lives each day and understand we must each examine ourselves before God in every situation.
