The more God shows this debtor of the vast, Everest-like mountain of forgiveness I require, the more joy I have in extending forgiveness to someone else.
We can flinch mentally and emotionally as well as physically, and what the Holy Spirit showed me is that flinching is a hardening of the heart.
When we forgive, our joy comes from the removal of hindrances to fellowship. Forgiven and clean, how could we not experience the joy of the Lord in full!
I am constantly learning something new about forgiveness. It's a much deeper well than I ever suspected, and the joy that follows is greater all the time.
A curse without cause will fly harmlessly over my head…unless I’ve opened a door to the enemy somewhere in my heart. Unfortunately, I had opened the door.
A prayer offered up for forgiveness, cleansing, and healing from SELF-HATRED. Are you ready to live as one forgiven, cleansed & ultimately healed completely?
If I want to be a forgiver, I not only have to inquire of God about what the offense is but also receive from His Life His forgiveness.
When we step into the divine inheritance and move from hating God to loving Him, the power of the curses we inherited and earned on our own is broken.
Did you ever try hard not to try hard? Did you ever contribute to your attempt not to contribute? Do you ever find yourself making it a job just to receive?
What I’m seeing in a whole new light today is just how much the enemy brings to bear against every start I make in the direction of Jesus Christ.
If someone mocks me and I respond to them with mockery and earn their enmity, it’s not Christ that they’re targeting. I was the one to make it personal.
Offering an apology to others is pretty well ingrained in me as good behavior and even better manners, but is it applicable to life as a disciple of Christ?
