“And be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32
One of the most powerful virtues and abilities that God has endowed the believer is the power to forgive. Life is full of ups and downs; we come across situations and relationships that can hurt us emotionally and psychologically. But we need to understand that there is an enemy of our souls called the devil and He is burnt on destroying us .The Bible says the devil comes to kill, steal and destroy. As we grow up and relate with others we will encounter unfavourable situations, sometimes we even make mistakes, and all these become burdens and cares that many carry in their hearts. You need to learn the healing power of forgiveness and the tremendous breakthroughs it will release upon your life.
Unforgiveness leads to bitterness and this clogs your spirit from properly receiving from God. Unforgiveness is a pollutant to the Human Spirit and it only destroys you. There is no better way to put it, you have to learn and ask God to teach you how to forgive. It’s for your good. When a person lives in bitterness it attracts demonic spirits because of the aroma that the person releases and the atmosphere that surrounds them. For most people especially if you have been hurt a lot the ingredient that has been missing for you to receive your miracle and answers to prayers is that you probably are still harbouring offences and this has caused your spirit to be clogged up and the devil stealing from you. Today I admonish you before moving on, take time to reflect upon people and situations that have caused you hurt, after taking inventory then you need to cast those cares to God because He cares for you. Don’t live another day in your life with bitterness and offence, it’s a waste of God’s precious time and it only destroys you more, it’s not worth it.
In conclusion, I want you to know that Forgiveness is 3 dimensional like everything else in God’s creative architecture and it is an on-going process. By 3 dimensions I mean there are 3 realms that you need to make sure you forgive from. I will run those quickly for you. But I encourage you to go on to our webpage for more material on this subject.
3 Dimensions of Forgiveness:
- Forgiveness from God
