I WANT TO FORGIVE THAT PERSON, BUT THEY HAVE DIED!
I WANT TO FORGIVE THAT PERSON, BUT I DO NOT KNOW WHERE THEY ARE!
I WANT TO FORGIVE THAT PERSON, BUT THEY WILL NOT TALK TO ME!
There are times when forgiveness cannot, or should not be with the other person. What do you mean?
Whether the person is dead, or simply, making it right will only stir the pot, then it might not be wise to go to that individual to seek forgiveness.
Mat 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
YOU CAN FORGIVE EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT STANDING IN FRONT OF YOU!
In those times we need to go to Jesus and ask Him to forgive us. Making it right with Jesus, even if you cannot talk to the other person and fix it in person.
REMEMBER, FORGIVENESS IS FOR YOU TO BE FREE!
If they are not dead, and are available, then you need to ask the Holy Spirit if going to them is the direction He would have you take. Jesus desires us to be FREE, so He will be clear with what He desires from the situation.
I CANNOT FORGET WHAT THEY DID THOUGH!
God has the ability to FORGIVE & FORGET. We must make the choice to be healed so the memory hast lost its power to hurt.
If you have a nasty, bitter person who constantly strives to hurt you, here is what you do.
Luke 6:27-30, To you who are ready for the truth, I say this: Love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer for that person. If someone slaps you in the face, stand there and take it. If someone grabs your shirt, giftwrap your best coat and make a present of it. If someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit-for-tat stuff. Live generously.
LIVE BITTER FREE!
