Have you ever notice that when God is trying to convey something to His people that you will hear multiple ministers speak from the same subject? Well there is a lot being said about forgiveness these days and I believe because it is the key to inner healing and wholeness in God. Yet in still it is a struggle for many of us to forgive those who wrong us. We often like living in a place of offense because we somehow feel empowered by those feelings when in fact we are powerless. Think about it we waste a lot of energy and thought on people or persons who have moved on in life and some are not even aware that they have offended you.
My husband has been teaching on this subject as well. He titled it, who offended you and stop you from your miracle? The truth unforgiveness has blocked us from receiving from God and stops us from moving forward in our destinies. If we are to be followers of Jesus did he not set the example? As He was being the sacrifice for my sins and yours He said in Luke 23:34 “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” This He asked of the Father for those who had beaten Him and nailed Him to a cross. I know that some of you have been abused physically, emotionally and spiritually. Seek to forgive those who have wronged you. Colossians 3:13 admonishes us to “Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. Lastly, forgive yourself don‘t allow guilt or shame paralyze you experiencing all God has for you. Some guilt and shame that we carry is often false, because we have blamed ourselves for what happen to us and it was not our fault. For those of us who know Christ as our savior it Romans 8:1 says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For those of you who do not know Christ but want to know and His forgiveness read this passage and accept Christ today that you may know the ultimate power of forgiveness. Romans 10:9-10 states 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
