The blessing of forgiveness

Spread the word!

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

It’s time to walk in love and experience the power and joy of forgiveness. And in order to experience this we must learn to forgive others and forgive ourselves also. As we approach not just the close of the year but the end of the ages, I sense that one of the areas we are going to start experiencing a great move of God’s spirit is in the area of love and forgiveness amongst brethren.

It is now time to make peace with one another. Time to let go of the past hurts and pains that have been caused by broken and unforgiven relationships. Pains of betrayal by false brethren and antagonistic co workers. Jesus told us that offences must come, there are many people today going about with day in and day out with hurts and acting as if nothing is wrong and are hurting deep down within. The smiles on their face says all is well, but the hurt in their hearts are crying out for relief from the pain of unforgiveness by their offender.

Today, the Apostle Paul exhorts us to forgive others by letting go of bitterness, anger, wrath, clamour, evil speaking and malice. Child of God, believe it or not, but forgiveness is for us more than it is for our offender. We are instead called to be kind to one another and tender hearted. In other words, put the love of Christ that is within us into action by forgiving one another as Christ has forgiven us. It’s time to walk in love!

I Declare: Dear Lord, I thank You for the power of forgiveness, because I have been forgiven, I choose to forgive everyone who has hurt me, I receive your healing now. I choose to be kind and compassionate, I refuse to harbor pain and hate, I dispense the power of God’s love and forgiveness.

Ignite Thought: We put the devil to shame and flight whenever we forgive those who have wronged and offended ylus.
